OriginEdit

Ignaz Semmelweis was a pioneer for cleanliness in the hospital environment. When Semmelweis noticed the evidence that doctors who cleaned their hands before and after surgery had fewer patients suffering from infections he suggested sweeping changes to hospital procedures. Sadly he was ignored and dismissed. Despite the fact that his procedures and sanitizing standards would save countless lives in years to come, he died broke, bitter, and insane.

EffectsEdit

Any water poured from the sink will be of the purest quality with the power to sterilize anything. A single drop of the water will render an object germ free.

CollectionEdit

Leena carried a spritz bottle of the water around the Warehouse when she was cleaning. The technique is still used today. To Myka's disgust, Pete uses the spray bottle on food that he drops on the floor. He argues that if it's sanitized then it is okay to eat.
