Umm... you don't need to create the temporary array, that is what

foreach ($vars as $var)

does... it creates a temp varriable to hold each one of $vars

If you are going to be putting it into a database, would it not be better to use mysqlrealescape_string(), also noting that add_slashes() is being dropped from the language?
