Default killing MRSA

A few years ago Tex was diagnosed with MRSA. Happily, he was successfully treated and it did not spread to us humans.

While we were able to treat him with medicine applied directly to his little nose by dropper and via nebulization, and could clean his belongings either in the wash or wiped down with a strong chemical cleaner (then rinsed a lot before given back to him), it left a lot of things un-cleanable. My foray into researching this nasty bug told me, given the right conditions, it could live on surfaces for months. Months! I wondered: if itís there, how do I get MRSA off the walls? Out of the carpet? All those little places that it could hide?

I no longer recall the path it took me to get there, but I happened across some research articles that spoke of killing staph using certain wavelengths of light. Iím attaching the articles I read then and a newer one I just found.

And, yes, I do now own a light box that sends out a frightening amount of blue light.
