Bacteria Bites
Division:Physical & Mathematical Sciences

Abstract:This project studies the effectiveness of eight select agents on two specific bacteria cultures. The household cleaning agents were tested on the potentially dangerous cultures, (Escherichia Coli and Salmonella), to see if any of them were effective in killing the bacteria successfully. Bleach was the most effective, as expected, but Lysol didn't live up to it's claims, and mouthwash actually made the bacteria grow!
