Frankly, I don't let my co-workers get that close.

Rubbing skin against skin with s*** on it isn't going to make things clean.

I suppose someone could use a rag that gets washed and bleached out after every use--but that would be hard to do at a workplace.

If someone is at home, they can take a shower after doing their business.

You don't have to buy anything. Except maybe if you have to take prescription medicine and they already tax that a lot of places.
My point is of course, here is a "just because" tax that is maybe remotely related to anything they are trying to pay for maybe not. Like when you want to build a school and instead of floating the idea of an over-all city wide tax with a sunset clause, you up the tax on a pack of cigarettes.

FS reminded me of a query I've had for awhile:
wonder why bidets never caught on in the states?
Something about rubbing a wood product across yer azz appeals to the American psyche.
