I worked at a restaurant for five years. My grandmother worked at the same place for ten years and my mom for five as well so we all wash our hands regularly out of habit. It's a good habit to get into because germs are best spread from hand to mouth.

We all worked in the same restaurant and for a while all three of us were there - I think only for about six months however because my grandmother then moved away. I do think that customers should wash their hands as well but I don't say anything to them about it.

I am definitely very strict with my children especially if it concerns their health. Washing hands before eating is a must for me, even if they will use spoon and fork for their food. For me, it is a good training to them until they grow up.

Before eating, Of course I will wash my hands. I was told when I was younger to always wash my hands and still do it.

I always wash my hands before eating but my father gets me angry. I never wash his hands before eatings sometimes we argue that he needs to wash his hands before so he can transmit bacteria to the food. He never listen to me so sometimes we fight because of this. Cleanliness is important so we don't get sick.

Yes, it's important to wash our hands for hygienic purposes. I also feel uncomfortable if I failed to wash my hands.
