You know that soap you use in public restrooms? Some micro-biologists now say it leaves your hands dirtier than before you washed them!

Scientists at "Go-Jo Industries," The company that created Purell hand sanitizer, say a quarter of bulk soap dispensers in public restrooms are contaminated.

They say airborne germs and hand contact leads to the contamination and then bacteria just keeps growing.

Some of the soap they tested contained so much dirty stuff, you would be better off washing your hands in the toilet after you flush.

Go-Jo has launched an awareness campaign about public soap to convince public places to stop using soap dispensers all together.
