Yes cleaning them in the water contaminated with faecal matter that is all we get in Baghdad. I have forbidden my children to drink this stuff and refuse to buy it as it gives them diarrohea every time they drink it. This refusal has not made me popular with them but they and I like diarrohea even less. I will be very glad when they are old enough to work out cause and effect for themselves :-)
