See, this is why the COVID hoax is bad.  Everybody washing their hands.

(What's gross is what people were doing before the pandemic.)

Yet ANOTHER reason not to wash your hands after using the lavatory.

Came here to post basically exactly this.

No shiat, washing grime off your hands puts the grime where you washed you hands.

Ivory and Dawn are our main disinfectants around here during the whole Pandemic.  Weird perfumey gel in the car.

Stuff gets dirtier when it's used, film at 11.

That bacteria has been in sinks since they started making sinks with plumbing.  If it was an issue, we probably would have read about it before now.

If you have unwanted tenants is your pipes, sodium hydroxide can be used as an eviction notice.

I hope ball washing is still safe...

Clean the sink but just below the drain is very nasty stuff that isn't easy to clean.

It's only a problem if the bacteria migrates out of the sink.  As long as you keep them appeased with lots of water and soap suds, they will have no need to colonize your faucet handles, toothbrushes, or toilet paper.

Yes and?

Sink basins and associated surfaces are always considered dirty. That's some 101 shiat.

one time one of my friends left a bottle of liquid irish spring body wash in the shower.  I ran out of toilet cleaner and just started using that stuff to clean the shiatter until it was emptied.

may have not been bacteria free, but smelled good.

There's bacteria everywhere, I don't care if it is in my sink. Also, who cares, do you lick the sink?
