I had a phone conversation with my dad this morning. He's has a sore throat and is a bit under the weather, so to speak. So, since he's not out gadding about, he did something that few of us EVER do. He polished the doorknobs! He noticed that Mother's bathroom doorknob, on the inside, was rough and some of the lacquer had come off the brass. He speculates that something in her hand lotion has done that. Hmmm - very intriguing - could it be? Caustic ingredients in the lotion? Mmmhmm. Daddy doesn't understand why I take the time (I have time now) to make my own lotions, etc. , but one reason is . . . INGREDIENTS! Check your brass doorknobs, kids.
