Why do women make swimming pools dirty?

A survey of over 1000 swimming pools has shown that the biggest pollutants are oil based. So much for the stories of little boys peeing in the pool.

Earlier pools were designed with a wall around them with a few openings at water level to allow the water to be re-cycled. The main drain was at the bottom of the deepest part of the pool. This dealt with dirt at the bottom of the pool but what about the film of oil on top of the water? More modern pools are built in the infinity style where the water runs over the top edges of the pool into the drains. This deals with the problem of the oil lying on top of the water, because as we know, oil floats on water.

But where does this oil come from?
