  • Soap may have decided early-1900s election

    19th-century physician, historian and author William Osler wrote: “Soap and water and common sense are the best disinfectants.”
    This statement still holds true today, for it has been verified that good old-fashion soap and water are every bit as effective as the most costly sanitizer.
    The earliest recipe for soap making was found on a Babylonian clay tablet, dated around 2200 B.C.; and the ancient Egyptians were known to have bathed regularly, using their own special highly-scented soap.
