Misplaced Efficiency

When I realized that liquid soap would keep the margins of the hand-washing sink clean, I cheerfully deployed a bottle at the fixture. Over the several years since I made the change, the maintenance of each bathroom subtly deteriorated. I switched back to well-dried bar soap a few weeks ago to simplify the inventory. It quickly became apparent that the minor morning wiping necessary to keep the sink presentable also triggered the motor sequences of refreshing the other fixtures in the room.

Sparkling clean is a quiet luxury that takes only seconds to achieve -30-
