Worms in the Soap Dish

Late last month we received a couple of pictures of worms, along with a question about what they might be. The pictures of the worms (if they even are worms) appear to be taken with a microscope. The worms were found by the soap dish in the reader’s house, which perhaps isn’t the first pace you’d expect to see worms (or worm-like creatures) in your house, but it’s actually not too bizarre, as many worms and larvae thrive in moist environments, and the water around a soap dish might provide just such an environment. What are these worms by the soap dish?
