Dear over-concerned parents. When will you realize all this coddling & safe-handling will ultimately harm your children more than germs, dirt & occasional exposure to lead paint. Aren't you concerned with the plastic crap you're buying at Ikea? Hell, who knows what toxic chemicals were used to make that plastic chair your baby's using chewing on. Oh, and want to know why kids are getting more & more sick? It's not the occasional run-in with germs -- it's the over zealous parent with their Costco-sized vats of anti-bacterial gel who have created kids without an immune system robust enough to fight off basic germs. As a kid growing up in the 70s & 80s, I ate dirt, played with toads & stepped on rusty nails -- and rarely actually washed my hands. I know I've moved a bit off-topic but seriously folks, stop worrying about antique furniture & spend some time with your kids. Preferably in the dirt.
