Yeah...I'm afraid, and it's not recommended to mix bleach with a cleanser...so I don't think I'll be using either of those tips!
And what is 'FELON'?.... a painful abscess or infection at the end of a finger or toe, near the nail; And do you even want to know what the 'RENNET' is.... 1-a) the membrane lining the stomach of an unweaned animal, esp. the fourth stomach of a calf.
And I might add that 'WHITING' is... powdered chalk used in making paints, inks, etc.
I just thought I'd share that little bit of info before giving you the list.....
