    You know, normal (non-antibacterial) soap is just as effective at killing harmful bacteria as antibacterial soap. It’s just the antibacterial soap makers who want you to think otherwise…

    Actually, if I understand correctly, scrubbing _without_ soap is about as effective at killing harmful bacteria as ordinary or antibacterial soap. Soap has the benefit of removing dirt/oil/scunge, of course.

    Way off. The anti-bacterial nature is only really effective afterwards as they leave an antibacterial residue behind (soap is initially as lethal as sulphuric acid). However the residue leads to resistant populations on surfaces AND has been implicated as a carcinogen (both the AMA and CDC say bad things about antibacterial soap)
