Bathroom Sink Fountain

Rinse with ease.

I don't know why, but I've never been able to keep a cup in the bathroom for rinsing after brushing my teeth. For my entire adult life, after brushing, I bend over and jam my mouth to the faucet of the bathroom sink and I occassionally (usually when a guest of someone else's house) feel that this is a violation of ettiquette or somehow barbaric.

The cold tap of the bathroom sink should have an attachment that functions as a water fountain. Press the button and cold water shoots up allowing one to rinse in a civilized manner.

This'll do the trick, but it's not quite what you want [lurch, Oct 05 2004, last modified Oct 17 2004]

maybe not far enough from barbaric... [swamilad, Oct 05 2004, last modified Oct 17 2004]

Pretty much as described. (Thanks for sending this in, Ellen!) [jutta, Feb 18 2008]

       Push button water fountains are baked.

       My grandparents' bathroom faucet had an aerator with a spring-loaded cross-slide. Pretty simple, but I haven't been able to google one up yet.

       Baked. (links)

       [half]-I had one of those.

       I'm not persuaded that this is baked.   

       [Lurch]'s link is in the right ballpark as far as having a third tap and not being designed for 4 year olds, but it's designed to help clean the sink, not to drink from.   

       Yes, push button water fountains are baked, but so far, not the push button water fountain/bathroom sink combo.

       //The cold tap of the bathroom sink should have an attachment that functions as a water fountain// The linked items are designed specifically to do this. I have had several of the gizmos that [lurch] linked to. It's not a third tap. But they are nifty little things, particularly the ones with 2 joints. Great for the kitchen sink.   

       I guess I interpreted the proposal incorrectly. So, is the proposal for an additional, separate piece of hardware that dispenses cold water or an attachment (diverter?) to existing cold water dispensing hardware?

       In my youth, I lived at a house (built in the mid-70's), that had a bathroom faucet that had a striking resemblance to... well... erect male anatomy. The water flowed towards you in a gentle arc. Sipping from the faucet was easy.

       I don't keep a cup in the bathroom either; I just cup my hands under the sink and drink from that. Just as barbaric, but not quite so messy.   

       Great idea, I'd buy one!! +

If you can bend down far enough, you could use the bidet.

       (1) Create seemingly half-witted idea.
(2) Prepare to post on Half Bakery.
(3) Search Google for evidence of having been baked (Google: "Bathroom Water Fountain", no quotes)
(4) Find that first search result is at the Half Bakery; drats, beat to it again!
(5) Find in the Half Bakery post links to existing products for sale.
(6) Consider purchasing said product.
(7) Reconsider after remembering that the idea was half-witted in the first place...
