Neither of those is what I was talking about - cleansing is fine, asking people not to handle your cards is fine. It's the people that wig out. "OMG you touched my cards don't you know they are SACRED it's like someone wore your UNDERWEAR without asking OMG I'm going to have to cleanse them in salt and moonlight and Hibiclens™ now and it will take TWO WEEKS."
I'm exaggerating only slightly.
I mean, just say, "Hey, in the future I'd rather you didn't handle my cards," most people will be fine with it.
Yeah, I see what you mean...Thankfully I have not met anyone like that, I would definitely get annoyed lol
