(from Twitter)..Reason #172 why I don't like eating out/at other people's places. Hand washing in my house is not optional. There's a reason that hand sanitizer and antibacterial soap is there, use it.

My local gym made me a foot flusher. It's absolutely disgusting how many people I see at the gym and work that don't flush and/or wash their hands (and have their phones in their hands while taking a leak and still not wash their hands.)

Had to look her up, so, not sure what her opinion counts for? Is she really popular and has sway over what people think? I'm sure I could go looking around and find no lack of outrageous statements on the web.

I'm not sure if I care too much anymore, it's good practice to wash, but even better practice is a) don't touch your mouth, and b) wash your hands before you eat. Combine all three and... you'll still catch colds & flu, so maybe it doesn't matter that much.

Well, she does write for an online mag..so there's that. I just found it disgusting that someone could say that.. and yes, she did actually have people agreeing with her. So that tells me she's not an outlier in this opinion. (seeing hand washing as unnecessary)

Ugh...

Urine and sweat are sterile. It's the the skin that isn't.

This is probably a joke to gain publicity or something even if there are quite a few nasty specimen in our species.

>300M people in our country, not surprising that she'd find someone to agree with her. Again, it's just a fringe opinion.

Oh well, time to sit back and see if this "goes viral". The fireworks might be impressive.

Heck, I did the same thing as an instructor. I didn't want to get dry erase marker on my wedding tackle.

Indeed.

I worked in a place where I dealt with doctors and nurses in a non-clinical enviromnent...some of the stuff I saw sick You'd think people with medical training of all people would know better. One doctor in particular would go through his Blackberry while taking care of business and then leave without washing. sick again.

You will likely get more germs washing than not.

What the first thing some one touches when coming out the toilet?

Faucet handles. Whats the last thing you turn off? Faucet handles.

CONTAMINATED big time .

I have dry skin, so no sanitizer for me - plus most have
perfumes that make me incredibly naseous.

What works is

Push Open the restroom door with my shoulder,

do the urinal ritual

then grab a paper towel and open the door handle with the towel.

If not Ill wait till someone else comes in and then Ill scoot out.

If I have to use the sink, Ill turn on the faucet with my elbow.

Still get about one cold a year but no nasty bacterial gut bugs when i make my own lunch.

Eating out it seems like one in four meals I get a bug.


We have a dirty house. Keeps the immune system cranking.

I always thought it a good idea to wash before peeing, self preservation. Washing after is for others preservation.

If you keep your junk clean, is there a reason to wash afterwards?
