the chemistry
i've done a fair bit of cleaning today, and if you think that means clean things.. it really means inhaling vast amounts of noxious abrasive fumes from aerosol cans. it also means scrubbing your hands with cleaning chemicals of the strong sort, so that the palms feel a bit tender as opposed to 'clean'. such is the way with all these chemicals, that i don't know if i can even make myself any 'cleaner' with regular bath soaps. if i put any more soap on me, i'm afraid my skin will begin to burn and then fall off the bone.

it's funny, the soapier something is, the cleaner we think it is. but how clean is clean? really?
