just a thought...

if a public washroom could only afford to automate one option between the soap dispenser, faucet, or paper towel dispenser?  it should be the faucet.  because when you have germs on your hands, you turn ON the tap...then you leave your germs on the soap dispenser.  you rinse the germs off your hands then turn OFF the tap...picking up the germs you left there.  if the tap had been automated, everyone's hands would be clean, leaving no germs on the paper towel dispenser.  so those bathrooms with an auto soap and paper towel?  useless.  

how can you tell i've spent a lot of time in public washrooms in my last 2 weeks of my pregnancy?

too bad you haven't been traveling on bc ferries. they've got automated everything. the garbage can is even positioned beside the door so you can use your paper towels to open the door and then toss them. it's a perfect set up.

Pet peeve: When people dispense the paper towel BEFORE washing their hands, thus getting their bathroom germs on what would otherwise be a clean paper-towel dispenser. I always want to yell at them: "You're ruining the system!!"
