The counter for my bathroom sink sits below the level of the counter (picture
). When the water is turned off, or the soap dispenser used, water dripping off hands gets all over the counter and eventually runs to the edge of the counter onto the floor. I want this to stop.
The fix for the faucet is to find a new faucet. But I'm not sure what to do about the soap dispenser. [more inside]

I have cotton napkins, some 100 percent, some 65 percent. And it says on the label to wash them in cold.
I want to make sure that when my child puts the napkin to her mouth that the napkin is sanitary. But I'm wondering if washing them in cold takes all the microbes out. I'm not only talking about the food, but what about my wash machine which may have just washed our family underpants. Is this common practice? Or am I missing something? Am I supposed to be washing the napkins in a bucket instead?
I wanted the convenience of washing in the washing machine, but if that is not sanitary I will do the bucket. Also, if I can do it in the machine, should I do it in warm to make sure microbes are gone? Or is cold best? Also, should I line dry or do it in the dryer.
Thanks in advance for your help.

A few weeks ago, I encountered a liquid hand soap that had these little black particles suspended in it. The dispenser was just your typical brand-name, pump handle dispenser, but the spout was a little bit wider than usual to let the black "pearls" pass through, which would dissolve as I washed my hands. What brand of soap was this?

I am traveling, and a waitress just dropped an entire tub of ranch dressing onto my jeans. I am staying in a hotel, I do not have a car, and I do not have easy access to a store. Is there any reason I should hesitate to wash my pants with the bar of hand soap in my hotel room?

I must be weird, but all I want from a body wash or shower gel is to get clean -- not moisturized, not fragranced, just clean. Can anyone help me find a brand that meets my particular criteria? [more inside]

I am looking for a good ointment or oil to help keep my 5/8" gauged pierced ears soft and healthy. I also am looking for a decent mild soap to cleanse them with on a daily basis. Does anyone have any recommendations as to what is the best of both to use and where to get them?

What brands of pure liquid SOAP can I buy at a grocery store/walmart in Canada? It must be pure soap and not a detergent as this is to make my own Homemade Insecticidal Soap Spray to combat epic cinch bugs in the lawn. :(
