changing knowledge

I have decided I am no longer using "antibacterial" soap.
The first reason is that it really isn't necessary, regular soap with its basic nature (pH) does it just fine.
The second is that i really have not bought into the "bacteria are bad" thought, they are necessary.  Without them, we would not be alive.  Controlling the bad ones is important, but the good ones sometimes take out the bad ones.
The other reason is more and more information on the long lasting effects of the chemical used as the "antibacterial" in soaps.
This was the link to the straw that broke the camels back from Environmental health News.
What will i use?
Chlorine, Hydrogen peroxide, vinegar, lemon juice, regular soap.
That will be enough.
