Just to clarify, you only really need the hibiscrub for wound cleaning, although it won't hurt if you wash the sore with it. If I have nothing else to hand I clean out the vivs with it. It's still good to have in your first aid kit though! What is the manuka honey, 10+? I've wondered if applying a good blob of it shortly before a shed will help it take on moisture and come off more easily.
