Anyways, I've always wondered: why do all mouthwash, cleansers, etc. only kill 99.9% of bacteria and/or viruses? Is this like job security or something?
I'm going to guess that the cleansers aren't completely effective and they don't want you to try to sue them if some bacteria aren't killed. I'm pretty sure the stuff would kill both the good and the bad. A lot of the products say 'surface' bacteria, so there's even more that may not be killed.

Yes, I think Shadamai is right. Nothing is 100% effective.

Sure there is! Ethylene Oxide gas will kill 100% of all bacteria, viruses, spirochettes, parasites, rickettesia, etc etc.

Oh- it will also kill carrots, trees, head lice, elephants, yeti, and you. It is classed as a biocide. Kills ANYTHING that lives. (WOC- walk down to Cenral Sterile Supply. Bet they use it down there in the gas autoclave)

There is a fine line betwen what kills bugs and what puts YOU on the brown side of the grass. Aren't you glad they did not try for 100.00000% ?

Oh- plutonium also works- but you need about 6 lbs of it, and crush it really fast.

Okay, yes, you are right. We do have equipment sterilization procedures here at the hospital that kill 100% of anything. BUT, the post I was replying to was products bought off the shelf at a store such as mouthwash, bacterial soaps, hand sanitizers, etc.

Be careful of that. Some people lack of sense of humor.
