    I’m not sure I see how the shower head sprays more bacteria than the bathtub sink faucet. What is the source of this additional bacteria?

    I agree with Valerie. That’s a load of BS. Because when I wash my hands in the bathroom sink after a tiny bit of fecal matter ended up on my finger tip from a power-wipe that caused a blowout in the toilet paper, my hands are within inches of the faucet potentially ricocheting droplets loaded with hepatitis-causing bacteria that may eventually work its way along the rim of the faucet and have just enough weight to hang there until the next unsuspecting tooth brush dives into the sink bowl and the faucet is turned on causing that droplet to wedge itself into the bristles just enough so it only releases in your mouth and gets shoved between your teeth and into your gums.

    Never brushing my teeth in the bathroom sink ever again.
