Your point about "kills cells in a petri dish" is frequently driven home to dairy farmers everywhere.
Staph Aureus is a pretty serious mastitis pathogen that's generally considered incurable. Yet almost every mastitis treatment says it's effective against streptococcus, staph aureus, etc, etc. They mean in the petri dish, not in real life.
Yes, almost anything will eradicate staph aureus -- if it can get to it. The reason staph is such a big deal, is because it walls itself off inside the udder, and only occasionally ruptures, spilling bacteria, and driving the cell counts through the roof. Because it's walled off 90% of the time, you can't get antibiotics to the location to kill it.
