You can decide if the rack is worth keeping. The towel....no problem. Just disinfect in the wash. ...Read more

No: I am really sorry that someone troubled you over this. You are young and you have a praiseworthy concern for your health. But this kind of fear is unrealistic and can make you unable to function as an adult. You cannot and should not want to avoid all volatile chemicals. Put this away and live fully. ...Read more

Cleaned flat stove top off with lysol wipe after spilling juice of raw meat. Cooked on it and forgot to wash lysol off. Could smell.  Will fumes hurt?

No: at that small amount of exposure I would not be concerned especially if cooking in kitchen and not in any enclosed space. If any eye, nose, throat, chest irritation that does not resolve in 1-2 hours or gets worse, see your doctor. Hope this was helpful. Best of luck. Dr. R ...Read more

Severe ocd. I was washing my cum stained underwear with hot shower and saw hot shower steam or water vapour. Is that water vapour clean? Thanks

Severe ocd. I was washing my cum stained underwear with hot shower and saw hot shower steam or water vapour. Is that water vapour clean? Thanks

Clean, but...: If one has bad OCD with obsessive thoughts and compulsive actions, it doesn't matter that the shower water and its vapor are clean... but rather, he must believe they're clean. Note that semen from healthy guys is clean, semen stains are very clean because germs tend to die when dried out, tap water is clean due to modern water treatment. Also, we are adapted to the usual microbes on/in/around us. ...Read more

I accidentally sprayed some bath & body works mist into my mouth at night instead of my moisterizing mouth spray:(  Am I poisoned?

No harm, no worries: As you can imagine, such mistaken use is very common for all cosmetics, personal hygiene products, etc. In the US, it would not be legal to market them unless they were safe regardless of such mistakes. The same applies to soaps, deodorants, perfumes, etc -- if you can buy it in a store, probably it's safe in small amounts like this. Don't worry about it! ...Read more

OCD: you are going way overboard with the washing, this is getting in the obsessive compulsive range. Why do you feel the need to do all these things, do you have other compulsions?
