I don't get this....at all.
I know germs are a big concern these days. I try not to be psycho about it and I wash my hands often and cough into my elbow. I teach my kids the same. But if food falls on the floor, I still eat it. I even recently let my son eat mini marshmallows that had fallen onto the grass at the park. Living on the edge, I know.
I know there are many people who have no choice but to watch the germs...weakened immune systems. And these days with allergies and such...what's on our hands is a big concern. I do understand. But my rant today seems valid even with that in mind.
These automatic soap dispensers for your home. Or even the ones in public bathrooms.
Let's just say the soap pump is a breeding ground for every germ imaginable. It's layered with them, sexing and partying it up, just waiting to get inside some unsuspecting human's body to really grow and live it up. Say these germs get on your hand and they're loving it. It's finally their turn!!!
But then you turn on the water, lather, wash for 30 seconds, and kill the little bastards.
So what is the point of an automatic soap dispenser?
I personally think these companies are preying on society's insecurities and creating fear where there needn't be. Some people see these devices and think, "Oh My God!! Soap dispensers are DISGUSTING! If I touch it I will have GERMS all over my hands! I NEED this dispenser for my house!"
And how dirty are our homes anyway?? Mine isn't spotless, but still, I keep it relatively clean. I even clean the top of the liquid soap dispenser on occasion...it gets kinda dirty. But I'm not doing it because I'm worried. It just looks ugly.
I really don't mean to offend anyone. If there really is a legitimate reason for an automatic soap dispenser, please enlighten me!
And PS..I have used the Lysol brand dispenser at a friend's home and it gave me way too much soap.
