I was putting some papers through my boyfriend's shredder and got the damn thing jammed up. I should have waited for him to come home and fix it, but I didn't want to deal with his pissy mood over it, so I started digging the jam out of the blades with a steak knife and a nail file. Stupid, yes, I know. Not one of my wiser moves. I got the shredder working again. The reason I know is because when the blades kicked on, I had the thing upside down in my lap, and the tips of my little finger and ring finger on my left hand got caught. Minor skin wounds, but they bled a lot. I'm typing with one hand. So my question is, how do I best clean these wounds now that they're only oozing into the Bandaids I put on my fingertips? I'm assuming those blades are filthy, with paper and ink and all. Do I need a tetanus shot? I'm kind of freaking out here, and muy daughter will be home in 25 minutes, so I need to get a grip fast. Please help me.

What's wrong with hydrogen peroxide?
It kills the good cells needed at the wound site (leukocytes) to promote wound healing. Actually does more damage then anything.
