When we're kids our parents always reminds us to wash our hands before meals or before grabbing foods to eat. We know that bacteria / germs are easilly acquired by our hands that is why our parents are always reminding to wash each now and then. Now that we are old enough to be told how often do you wash your hands?

Well I wash my hands many times a day! I am a very busy mom and always doing something! So each task that I complete, I wash my hands right after. I really can't say how many times but I do know that it is atleast 6 times a day:)I also keep a bottle of anti-bacterial gel in the bathroon, bedroom, kitchen and living rooms of our home for my children to use. My kids have learned to love it, but I don't allow it! I often remind them to was their hands. Although it is easier to use the ant-bacterial gel, they still need to know that washing your hands is a mandatory part of life!

I reckon as well that washing is better than anti-bacterial gel because there's a study that using those gel just makes us prone to germs. (,")

I wash my hands all the time, as many times as it is necessary to keep them clean. There are lots of germs in practically everything we touch nowadays, so it is a good practice to wash every now and then, especially before meals and after we visit the washrooms.

I worked as a nurse before and I washed my hands every time after I served my patients.I believe it is a good habit for reducing the possiblities of catching dieases.And now I am not a nurse anymore,but I still wash hands as often as I can.Especially every time when I go back home,it is a must to do.
