    So why do the liquid soap dispensers in the public bathrooms say "Not for antibacterial soaps"?

    Maybe a few hundred thousand trillion bacteria got together, formed a sentient collective, and are now a registered special interest group lobbying the government to save microbial lives?

    Probably because antibacterial soap has proved to be useless, unless you scrub for at least a minuet. But then regular soap will do just as good of a job.

    The other problem is that it will kill SOME of the germs but NOT ALL of them. The problem being that the survivor's will now to be much stronger. And then the cleaning product (and drug) company's will sell you their latest products to solve a problem that they created.....Hmmm perhaps I should buy drug stocks....

    I heard that health authorities are now strongly recommending the use of new alcohol-based dry-wash gels to supplement regular soap washings for doctors and nurses.
