The response you quoted me own was against another poster who challenged my posting of this was the normal price of the year by showing for 3 days the prie was much higher. But he failed to inform the other 300 plus days it was the same price as the OP's price.
I think if someone needs it and would like to use it to finish their 5 items of the month for subscribe and save that is fine. But the OP implied this was such a good deal that he bought 2 sets and like I said felt the need to bump his own post.
So if I am "catty" for defending my words, I guess I apologize. But tell me where I made such rude statements that I deserved to be told to stop talking, that my assumptions were wrong? What did I say wrong?

an article on the dangers of antibacterial soap, i can't believe how many of you don't know about this! do you ask your doctor for antibiotics whenever you get a cold virus as well?
"The APUA microbiologists and other scientists acknowledge that the chemicals in antibacterial products do kill bacteria, but there is no reliable evidence that they are doing any good. In addition, people often use antibacterial products to wipe telephones and doorknobs for fear of flu and the common cold — illnesses caused by viruses and against which antibacterial products do not work at all.
* A 2004 study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine randomly divided 228 households into two groups: one group used regular soap, and the other antimicrobial soap. There was no difference at all between the two groups in the incidence of fever, sore throat, vomiting, diarrhea, cough, runny nose and pinkeye.
* In 2005, an advisory panel to the Food and Drug Administration concluded (in an 11-1 vote) that antibacterial soaps and washes are not more effective at keeping people healthy than ordinary soap and water.
But the real issue is no longer whether the products do any good. The more important concern is whether they are doing harm.
* An infectious disease specialist says there is growing evidence that the chemicals used in antimicrobial products may be causing bacteria to develop resistance to common antibiotics. While the phenomenon has been observed so far only in laboratories, scientists fear it can eventually happen outside.
* Other scientists fear that a germ-free environment at home may actually result in weakened immune systems. A number of studies have shown that the development of allergies, asthma and skin problems in children is linked to their having been raised in household environments that are too sterile.
* Environmental scientists are also finding evidence that the triclosan and triclocarban in antimicrobial products have reached the ecosystem, where they are causing reactions that form toxic dioxins harmful to aquatic life."

"Anti-Bacterial Soap kills 33% of the germs that normal soap leaves behind"
If you spin it this way (and most every advertisement does) it sounds like quite an improvement.
I also enjoy hearing about how Ford is the only line of cars with "Eco-Boost", a trademarked name that only Ford may use.
Advertisers believe the masses are stupid.

Normal, boring soap will kill about 99.4% of the bacteria on your skin. Antibacterial soaps increase it to only about 99.6% (for triclosan soap). This is not a big difference.
