Soccer Trivia

How many times has the U.S. Women’s National Team won the Olympic soccer tournament?
(see answer below)

The Trainer's Corner

Hydrogen perioxide ia a good as bleach only safer on the clothes. Basically is oxidizes the red cell (breaks it up) and allows the heme pigment to be washed off. You will see a foaming of the stain (blood). Once the foam subsides, simply flush with water and at the most you will have a brown tint spot remaining that should come out in the wash. Works very well.

Use it on uniforms. A suggestion is to always have a bottle in your medical kit. It is also an ideal wash for the fresh road rash or scrap for cleaning the wound. Contrary to most, it really doesn’t sting much if at all. It should not be used on healing wounds as it will decrease healing (kills cells, and can’t tell the difference between bacteria and good cells). It is inexpensive. A generic brand is just fine and can be purchased in small bottles by the case for easy use.
