Dropped my beloved snuff box lid and it...

...hit the the toilet seat in work and bounced off onto the filthy looking floor. Do I throw it out or how should I give it a good clean so I don't get the bad aids? Any advice?


  • Btw it's a wooden Wilsons of Sharrow box.
  • @vmank1q Could you dip it in hydrogen peroxide or vinegar to disinfect it? That's how you disinfect wooden cutting boards.

    wood actually handles bacteria well. It sucks it into the pours actually, where they end up starving. Which is why a wooden cutting board is more sanitary then a plastic one. I'd gently wash it with soap and water and gently hand dry it. Leave it for a day before using again and it will be fine.
  • Thanks for the advice guys. I've had the snuff box since about 2011 so I've had it quite awhile and didn't want to bin it.

    now if you dropped it into the toilet I'd say it's a lost cause. Floor is fine.
  • Oh yeah it would be a goner if it hit the water. I just washed it with soap and water and dried it. I'll leave it for a day and use it again.

    I dropped a box in the toilet and even though it was just a cheap plastic one that probably would have been fine if I sterilized it I had to toss it. One it was cheap but no matter how clean it was I'd think of it as the toilet snuff container.

  • You can also put it in a deep freezer for a couple of days...

  • Your comment      "it would be a goner if it hit the water."     set my twisted word association going again , and I recalled a crude old joke from many years ago.

  • You could always keep it for handing around snuff in the pub to people you do not like.

  • It's too late now. I washed it last night, dried it and used it today. The lid is really slippery in the box now, odds on it will happen again  8-|
