For thorough and safe cleanliness, plenty of soap, or other cleansing agents, and warm water arc generally most efficient and effective disinfectants. However, when hands or other parts of the body, articles of clothing or housewares have been contaminated by disease germs from a wound, sick person or from contact with cats, dogs, flies or rodents, disinfectants are needed besides ordinary washing.

For the hands, rubbing alcohol or lysol solution (teaspoonful to a pint of water) are good disinfectants after soaping and washing three times.

Boiling for 3 to 5 minutes is best for glassware and other articles that can be boiled without spoiling. Lysol or C-N solutions or chlorox is satisfactory for wiping off after washing of woodwork, porcelain and metal.

For disinfecting a room that has been occupied by a person sick with an infectious disease, a good airing and sunshine are satisfactory if the wood-work, bed and chairs have been washed with a disinfectant.

Formaldehyde or the fumes of a sulphur candle burned in the room (follow directions on labels of these articles) are good, but the doors and windows must be scaled with paste paper when a room is disinfected. Mercurochrome serves to disinfect superficial skin wounds.

Chloride of lime, 2 parts to ioo parts of water, lysol, cresol or C-N solutions (teaspoon to a pint of water) are good for disinfecting bowel and urinary discharges from the sick and for privies and other contaminated places
