I always wash hands before eating, in addition to health, it is not convenient to eat if do not wash hands. Moreover, from restroom, would be hand-washing.

Hello isabella123 Obviously before taking any food I wash my hands and I think almost all persons are doing the same except few one. It is essential from the health hyzine point of view. So I can not compromise on this issue. pkc3000

Hello,Isabella! In India we usually eat by our hands.So we are taught by our parents to wash hands feet before eating otherwise people would call this act as uncivilized.So it has become our habit to wash our hands before and after eating foods.thanx.

If I'm going to be eating something that requires the use of my hands then I definitely make sure to wash my hands. Since I've become a religious hand washer, I haven't gotten sick. I make sure to wash my hands before eating as often as I can and if I can't do that, I make sure to use a antibacterial hand lotion before eating or if I've been out for a long while. It's really the best thing to do.

I was my hand profusely and have the dry skin to prove it! That actually sounds gross to see that! Kind of turns my stomach! Oh well I guess it is a good thing I did not eat yet! LOL

I think most people rinse their hands thinking that is good enough, I am a deep thinker and i think about that sort of thing a lot, people can wash their hands ok but then open the door that other people who have not washed their hands have touched and considering I read some time ago now that it was being considered that the hand shake and greeting kiss were at one stage going to be discouraged as it was spreading germs, I guess we should maybe think about when we go to public restrooms.

Yes, I do wash my hands all of the time. After using the restroom, wiping my nose, touching anything dirty, before cooking or eating, etc., etc., etc. If I even suspect that one of my kids has not washed their hands when they should, I make them go do it (again). I think it is just disgusting when people fail to wash their hands, especially after using the restroom!!
