No matter how hard we scrub, sanitize, and wash, bathrooms are fundamentally gross. As the space we set aside to focus solely on our bodies (to say nothing of the fluids, excretions, and expulsions thereof), they are a breeding ground for all manners of bacteria, germs, and fungi. Despite being dedicated to hygiene, bathrooms run the constant risk of becoming decidedly unhygienic, none more so than public restrooms with their revolving door of guests, each of whom adheres to their own personal code of sanitary upkeep.
