Of course most Scouters are parents. I was asking if there were any
special precautions. I'm a parent, too. I wouldn't put on plastic
gloves to bandage my son's knee, but I would to bandage another Scout's
knee. I don't boil my own dishes, nor do I rinse them in clorox water,
but I do that at camp. So I'm surprised a question about whether there
are any special precautions for clothes washing should bring hoots and
Most people who clean diapers these days do use clorox, but they also
use washing machines. The hot water in the washing machine is the
temperature of the setting of the hot water heater (120 or so) - much
less than boiling.
My guess is that some Scouts wouldn't appreciate bleach in the wash
water - at least not when they plan to clean their uniform shirts. And
those cleaning wool socks aren't going to be very pleased with boiling
So what is the procedure for the washaterias?
What a cry to "Flame"!
