You might want to try meow-meow gai-pan. It is said to be very good!

That's the stuff. I think the medical professionals said that that was their disinfectant of choice, but I'm not sure how easy it would be to get a dropper full like you can with iodine. I do try and get the individual wipes for first aid kits. Certainly it seems irrigating with a solution of iodine or benzalkonium cloride would be benefitial for known dirty wounds like rusty nails and animal bites if you couldn't get to a hospital with in a day or two.

I carry a vial of povidone iodine in a small glass vial (no dropper, just a screw cap though I could easily switch this) in my PSK kit. Fits great with a small BIC lighter as well. You could use it as a disinfectant for wounds and for purifying water.

It's easy to get benzalkonium chloride wipes from most pharmacies or clinic supply stores, and the alcohol free hand sanitizers have them as a main ingredient as well usually.

Hydrogen Peroxide? Povidone Iodine? Benzalkonium Chloride? Lidocane?

What are you, a bunch of sissies???

The really cool part is that once you take care of the infected finger, it works great to trim up that cigar!

Ok, so summary execution isn't an option.

That leaves assassination.

Or accident...... wink

Wow, the blog entry is hilarious. I'm sitting here at work trying to hide my snickering with fake coughing.

You can get Betadine in a 1/2 oz plastic squeeze bottle, which is great for first aid kits because it won't break and leave you with a bright orange first aid kit. One came with my REI backpacker's first aid kit, but it looks like you can buy them separately as well. Here's a link .

And in a pinch, you can purify water with it. Probably not great, but better than nothing...
