Hi all;

Its that time of year when not terribly busy and I look at a stray case and it occurs to me that its been in lots of nasty cases over a year/or two or very long time.

Of course labels you take off with "goo gone" but washing them I do the bucket of water with a disinfectant soap in it and a rag and wash them off. Takes about 40 min and you feel so good when you see it sitting on your floors after that.

Vests, take out the pads, hand wash them in the tub with cold water and some kind of reg. soap and rinse til clean then VERY IMPT, air dry them.

Rigs, wipes are great on the center post and most of the parts you touch the most. I finally started to notice how much off my hands is transfered to the gear.

I'm certainly no germ-o-something but it does add up.

I think its like changing the batteries in your smoke detectors, wash off something then too!

Also a good time to oil certain parts for rust protection. I am a fan of CorrosionX for this.
