    Nah - it's just I figure why use a new one? But you can get cheap ones at the Dollar Store - or if we'll be diving together just let me know and I can sanitize one and bring it for you! :wink:

    In the scrubbing case, I don't think it's to apply defog - it's to get it really clean. Salt water deposits/residue can build up, so maybe that's the purpose?

    Ok. I guess that makes sense. Especially if you're using that defog that you buff on.

    I've used the same in various modes for seven decades. Never saw a reason to change. Versatile stuff.

    Is there any shampoo that dosen't smell like babies? I don't like the smell of baby powder, baby shampoo, baby poo, whatever.

    Well then you should like baby powder.

    Do you have any idea of what it takes to make a container of that? And then there is baby oil. Jeez. I couldn't bring myself to buy that...

    Lots of babies for the proper concentration. It also depends on what you feed these babies and how fresh they are before juicing.
