...and can you spell O-V-E-R K-I-L-L? As in way overkill?

1. Don't need to wipe down the outside of your machine unless the cat puked on it.

2. Don't need to change the bed sheets unless the cat pee'd on them.

3. Don't need to clean out the closet unless that's where the cat hid all her spare mice and rats.

Don't have a cat? Problem(s) solved.

Nope, no cat, but I have a crazy Yorkie that hides strange things under my bed
and under my pillow too. Have to check it every night.

How the heck are you hanging the tubes? It's not like you are living in a rain forest. Thinking-about The only time my bro's tubes don't dry well is when we have 90% humidity and that's actually pretty uncommon here in MN.

It's May 2nd, and I had to skip morning errands because I was dizzy from being too tired. My titration study isn't for 3 more weeks and then another 2 weeks to see the doctor. I suspect everything was put out for so long because the doc wanted to go on vacation. Oh-jeez Anyway, since the discussion is about cleaning, I have seen that some places sell a disinfectant. Is that even necessary unless you have certain diseases?

The answer to your question about disinfectant is: It depends on how paranoid you are.

LabRat lives in OZ. It's a big continent; and the northern areas are quite literally in the tropics.
