we did some jobs doing plumbing in embalming rooms and to get that smell of death off everything I found the best thing was lemon scented ammonia.... works real good for normal average plumbing smells too.

My Master did a repipe at a mourgue. Complained about the smell, but didn't bother him otherwise. Not sure how I would do. My dad has intervened in my life once for sure right after we plaintext's him.

I was also born in a renovated barn in a small town in MA. The barn was used in the Underground Railroad. I was a baby at the time, but according to both my parents, there was a lot of goast stuff.

Pretty creamy what dad did to us.

I use disposable gloves, and throw away any gloves that fecal juice on them. I charge them to the customer. I always have Lysol wipes and Fast Orange wipes for cleaning tools and stuff that gets jizzed up.

Quickest way I've found is to wipe them off with your shirt.

I've done the same thing with the car wash. Then toss them in to a clean bag and take them back to sears and get new tools.
