According to a radio report, a middle school in Oregon was faced with a unique
problem. A number of girls were beginning to use lipstick and would put it on in
the bathroom. That was fine, but after they put on their lipstick they would
press their lips to the mirrors, leaving dozens of little lip prints.
Finally the principal decided that something had to be done. She called all the
girls to the bathroom and met them there with the custodian. She explained that
all these lip prints were causing a major problem for the custodian who had to
clean the mirrors every day.
To demonstrate how difficult it was to clean the mirrors, she asked the
custodian to clean one of the mirrors. He proceeded to take out a long-handled
brush, dip it into the nearest toilet and scrub the mirror.
Since then there have been no lip prints on the mirror.
