MouthWash?: Although some mouthwashes contain alcohol, swallowing a small amount should not cause you significant harm. However, in general, mouthwash should be swished and spit out.

A 39-year-old member asked:

How safe is it to wear underwear straight out of the package before washing them first?

Not great: While it probably won't kill you, it's always a better idea to wash brand new clothing prior to wearing it. Many chemicals are used in the manufacture and packaging of clothing that can cause irritant and allergic reactions, typically rashes. I recommend washing all items of clothing prior to first wearing them.

Yes: Any fruit, organic or not, can be cleaned and then frozen for later use. Once frozen, they are safe from any contamination although they might get freezer burn (which is a form of drying out) if kept too long.

Yes: I would not trust any packaged (or fresh produce) for that matter - even if organic. People touch them, they get shipped all over, chemicals added, etc. Best to wash them before consuming.

Used for diagnosis: A bronchial wash is a way of retriving cells and micro organisms that are related to a lung condition associated with an illness. They are obtained during bronchoscopy and sent to the lab for cell analysis and cultures. They can be very helpfull in diagnosis avoiding an open lung biopsy.
