Showers: Showers of bacteria

When you turn on the shower, and a nice hot water scatters out of its faucet. Looks like we’re cleaning up. And yes, that is true. But it is no less true that there are many things that are rushing over our body in addition to that apparently clean water.

In this environment, in addition, they can collect everything that floats in the water, as if they were sea sponges. They are liters and liters of water that often pass.
