Sorry maybe that is why I find water good enough unless I'm covered is something really nasty and need a little something to break it loose.

Undermining of infection prevention measures — and a move to manual-pump shared toiletry dispensers does that — means increased antibiotic use. And what does increased antibiotic use mean? It means more drug-resistant bacteria in an environment where investing in new antibiotics isn’t as productive as it used to be 40+ years ago.

Water by itself doesn’t decrease bacterial count on skin surfaces anywhere close to as well as the use of warm high-pressure, soapy water derived from rather clean soap. Queue a lesson about ionization and phase behavior of fatty acids in water?
