The aerator on my kitchen faucet was kaput so I went to big box land for a new one.
Every aerator has Microban in it.
As an old timer I seem to remember aerators just having brass or stainless screens in them not plastic cartridges. But that might have been just to keep the grit out of the tea.
Anyone know how to get fluffy tap water without the antibiotics?

Wow - I had no idea!

Check out some of the aerators on this site. Some list the antimicrobial and some don't. It might be worth calling them to question them specifically about an aerator that interests you: http://www.chicagofaucetshoppe.com/Low_Flow_Aerators_and_Adapters_s/2814.htm

Thanks for the link. There are antimicrobial aerators there too, but luckily not all of them, thank goodness.
