If you’ve eaten out recently and used the washroom, then you know that each washroom’s sanitation equipment combination (SEC) is unique. Sometimes you have a touchless tap, but a hand-powered soap dispenser. Sometimes you will be delighted by an automated soap dispenser, but frustrated by a paleolithic paper towel unit. This variety of SECs is not only confusing and horribly inconsistent, it is also unsanitary.
Bathrooms at businesses rarely contain all three points of the sanitation triangle – a structure that is only complete when the dispensation of soap, water and paper towel do not require physical contact. If any one of these is not present, then the triangle collapses, rendering the entire cleansing procedure unsanitary.
Oh well, everyone touches the door on the way out anyway.
