I turn on the water, dispense some soap, rub my hands together, rub my hands together a lot more under the running water.
Sometimes though, I didn't dispense enough soap the first time so have to go back and push down on the dispenser again, which will usually cause water to drop off my hand and onto the sink counter leaving some unwanted puddles of water.
Most every time when I'm finished rinsing my hands I reach for the towel to dry them, which causes water to drip on the sink and on the bathroom floor.
This is especially irritating after you've just recently cleaned the bathroom. Also, other people might think you sprayed pee on the floor of the bathroom.
I have tried cleaning up the water before with toilet paper, but the toilet paper can dissolve pretty fast and cause more of a mess. Paper towels are expensive.
I've also tried removing my hands from the running water but keeping them above the sink for a while to hopefully let the water fall off there before reaching to dry my hands. I never really have enough patience for this method though.
So how can I stop making my sink counter and bathroom floor water oases in the first place?
