Do you wash your hands everytime you go to the bathroom? Everytime? Be Honest
No question. Also after handling food, or going to the grocery store or touching anything in public. I learned to do this while I was working as a massage therapist. I have not had a single cold since beginning the practice. Hot as I can stand it water, and wash for as long as it takes to sing "Happy birthday to you. "
Yes, every time; and each time before and after I prepare food and after eating (prevents cross contamination, etc.). After sneezing if I block it with my hand as well, and before and after using keyboards at public computing places. Have not had a cold in years and never had the flu in my life, gratefully.
Of course - always. In fact, I am a bit of a cleanliness freak, bordering on being obsessive-compulsive - though thankfully not in the extreme sense of it.
Normally, but I find if I'm down the pub, the drunker I get the less important it becomes.
And after visiting the bathroom is pretty much the only time I do, I'll handle raw meat, chemicals whatever and then lick jam off my fingers, yummy!
A little bit of grime does you good (possibly).
Absolutely, unfortunately I work with computers in a hospital, so i seem to wash my hands and apply alcohol gel more oftern than i actually do my job! Oh well!
Yep big hand washer here .
Does make you wonder though all the places we touch ,maybe you can think of more.
Guess its more the proportion of bugs and some is fine.
I wash my hands after doing a lot of things. Keyboards apparently contain more germs than a toilet!
I also wash after petting animals too, seeing as I have a killer cat that hunts anything that moves and probably has all sorts of nasty germs.
Yes, each and every time. I also wash for many other activities, such as food preparation, before and after meals, and anything to do with animals, gardening, cleaning or shopping.
I like that our grocery stores provide large containersof sanitary wipes at the entrances and throughout the stores.
No, not every time. When I get up to pee in the middle of the night I sleepwalk back to bed. In public restrooms, yes, always.
Always and tis disgusting if you dont. In my work we work the odd Saturday ok and usually somebody makes tea and brings it in those small plastic cups. Anyways I go for a Jimmy Riddle ( irish for pee ) and one of the guys I work with is in full flow, doncha just love graphic detail. Anyways out he walks as I clean my hands and as I am sitting down later I see him walking towards me with his hands fully wrapped round two plastic cups of tea. He turns to me and says " Heres a cup of tea for you Art"....Hands up if you guessed my 2 letter reply
yes, i wash my hands. i flush the toilet at public bathrooms with my foot. i HATE being sick.
I just avoid the public bathrooms all together. Alot if not most of those germs are airborne!!
If I avoided public bathrooms, I would have to wear Depends. When dixie whistles, I goota go!! Always wash hands for at least 20 seconds, paper dry (not on pants), and then use that paper to open the door to leave the bathroom. Bathroom door handles are loaded with germs.
Ummm, do you think you could just use a piece of toilet paper over your hand to do that from now on? Or even your elbow? Because some people aren't so paranoid about touching a toilet handle, and what you are exposing others to is really disgusting...
Absolutely. Before during and after. I don't touch anything in public whatnots without covering my hands first. Etc.
Probably not a bad idea if'n folks are walkers and not washers
Since getting the cast taken off my forearm on Wednesday, I can now wash my hands properly. The cast came halfway up my hand, with a hole for the thumb, and it was impossible to do more than run my fingers under the tap and try not to get the dressing wet.
Now I can soap my hands properly. . . LUXURY.
Yup, every time after using a bathroom. Also, while preparing food I also do.
Yes, and I also wash my hands after I am outside with the dogs, before I make dinner, after dinner etc. I am a nurse and it is habit.
I so know what you mean, Teresa! Congrats again on losing that cast!
Yes. I wash my hands. I drive my kids up the wall to get them to wash their's too.
Washing my hands is compulsory i have been told that i have a problem though although I wouldn,t agree I am constantly washing my hands around every 10 mins exept when i am at work then i have to wait till breaks though it kills me to think I have to wait that long.....jimmy
I also had a problem with washing my hands a lot years ago. The skin started coming off my hands. If you do wash your hands a lot, you should actually use a mild soap or moisturizing bar (a lot like soap).
Now I don't do it as much, and I always have a bottle of hand sanitizer. You can get bottles that are small enough to carry around, but I don't. Wet Wipes are also good.
hell yes and I carry sanitizer with me. I use it after I shake hands with people. I have driest hand in the history of the world from doing this. My hands look 105 years old. Who do you know that doesn't wash their hands after going to the bathroom???? Naughty!!
Yes and I wash for at least 15 to 20 seconds; that's about two times through singing Happy Birthday. Yes I do sing it to myself.
Yes, Happy Birthday...common theme when doing the research
Me also, it is important I think for the hygiene. it surprise me that so many people use the tissue, and donnot wash hands after touching. Then they leave all over place. This can easily affect other people.

Why do you think people don't wash their hands?I see people who use public restrooms and run out without washing their hands properly if they wash them at all. Many only use water, others get soap and immediately rinse it off, and other just immediately walk out without doing anything.

Do you have your children wash their hands before eating?I was taught washing one's hands before eating is good sanitary practice, and likewise I still tell my kids to do this. But I've been told by a few that the practice is "old-fashioned" and worse, "anal". What do you think...

I sold my 1991 Dodge Stealth with over 200,000 miles on it about two months ago for $2,500 and now the people are calling me threatening that if I don't pay for things to be fixed on it they are taking me to court. The car wasn't inspected and they knew it had a bad wheel bearing, the car made a...

Do you wash your hands with soap or use antibacterial gel after a toilet visit?Bit grim maybe but I'm intrigued. I work in a serviced office and 85% of the guys use antibacterial gel after going to the toilet but no water or soap. It's quicker basically. I always use soap and water to make sure my...

I have children and everyone of them went through the stage of always wanting their hands in the water! I have had Doctor's tell me that it is a very bad thing to allow your children to compulsively wash their hands do you feel that is true or not? My feelings were always as long as they are...
