memphis201 tells us more.
Just for clarification, I always wash my hands before I use a tampon, but in this case it was an emergency, if you get what I mean by that. I also didn't have the kind that uses an applicator available so I had to actually put my hands up there for the tampon to function properly.

That must be horribly painful. I remember accidentally rubbing my eyes after cutting up some lemons, and boy did it sting! Fail your life, OP!
Don't you wash your hands? I believe that's how you can get infections with dirty hands...
33- the acid in lemon juice is not strong enough to disinfect surfaces. Restaurants provide Lemon juice for its fragrance and degreasing properties, not to disinfect you hands. Viniger, on the other hand, has enough acid in it to properly disinfect surfaces. Do your homework before posting nonsense. :3
67- I said I was just speculating and did not claim to be an expert nor did I say my speculation was infallible. Don't be so rude and get off your high horse. Just because you possess some knowledge where others do not does not entitle you to be an asshole On another note, I agree with you 42. I once used icy hot then proceeded to take a piss. I think it's nuff said there
1) I said "possess". if your gonna direct quote someone/something, at least get it right eh? 2) knowing information in certain subjects is "knowledge", but looking both ways before crossing the street is "common sense". Don't be so quick to denigrate others with what you consider to be "common sense". Does that mean since I took calculus in school, if I ask someone I meet on the street to explain a Jacobian matrix to me and they can't, that they lack common sense? I most certainly think not. 3) Lastly, do YOUR homework. The citric acid (that is present in lemons, among other things like ascorbic acid) actually has a pH of about 2.3, while acetic acid (in vinegar) has a pH more like 2.5-3. And both occur in about 5% concentrations, so lemon juice would be a stronger acid than vinegar. Just not suitable for disinfecting because of the other substances found in lemons (like natural sugar, which we all know can leave your hands a little sticky).
