Mud fans here, DD and DS love to jump in muddy puddles! They also love their sand pit and trampoline where I have to hose or brush off all the wildlife poo every so often. It is healthy for kids to have exposure to germs - germs are not all bad and make you ill, there are plenty of good germs and by sanitising our lives we are actually doing ourselves and our children a dis-service.
I've never wiped a public toilet seat in my life - either for myself or my kids.
My DD's current undie stash is 100% second hand thanks to a certain generous Forum Manager with a DD a couple of years older than mine. DD and DS both wore second hand MCNs too. I doubt I ever had a single disposable nappy on my bottom - being the youngest I would have only hand the terry flats mum had used for the older siblings and they probably 2nd hand when she got them.
DS in particular has the immunity of a horse. In 2.5 years of school he has had I think 3 days (tops) off school due to illness.
There's that old thing about how parents clean the dummy for subsequent children if it drops on the floor:
1st child - dummy is cleaned and sterilized before returning to child
2nd child - dummy is washed under hot water before returning to child
3rd child - dummy is wiped on parent's leg before returning to child

I always thought pimples and blackheads occur when pores become blocked with oil and dead skin cells....not dirt.

To answer the original question I probably would have binned it but I am also a hesitant public restroom user, I go as far as flushing the first few sheets of toilet paper because I hate thinking about what hands touched it before me. As for a mud play my kids LOVE mud play every time after it rains DH, the kids and I all run around the back yard splashing having mud fights (the neighbours think we are nuts) and DD is going through puberty but I have instilled a good facial cleansing routine with her so she doesn't get black heads. Oh and all my children have a lot of self respect even though they play with dirt
