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.

    I agree. And I admit that I don't always wash my hands after using a public restroom, when the sink area looks disgusting and there is no soap. And I always use my foot to flush to the toilet so as to touch as less as possible lol

    Many people become ill because they didn't wash their hands or they touched the same germy surface as a person that did not. Taking a culture of your "clean" genitals even after a bath/shower will likely change your mind.

    I understand your allergy however, this is an extreme rarity. Some people refuse to use sanitizers or wash their hands but it is a lack of hand washing (particularly after using the restroom or when cooking) that is a very common cause of disease.
