Do you wash your hands each time....

you go to the bathroom? I was in a restaurant the other night and I went to the bathroom. I was washing my hands and this lady that had been in the bathroom when I was just walked out. She didn't even wash her hands. I thought that was so gross because she used the bathroom and then went back to her table to eat her food. I even wash my hands at home everytime I use the bathroom. I guess it's just a habit because I keep kids and I make them wash their hands after they use the bathroom too.

yes i do! i have this really good soap and one of my friend's thinks im crazy cause i love the smell cause it reminds me of the doctors office. you go there alot when you are pregnant lol! thats why i loved it though, cause everytime i went to the doctor i got to hear my babys heartbeat, or see him on ultrasound, so it brings back good memmories! i also do it cause i dont want to give my 4 month old son anything especially when i am sick. i also keep hand santizer in the bathroom, on the changeing table, and in the living room.

Yes i always wash my hands when ever i use bathroom or before & after i eat my food. I think it is question of maintaining good hygiene. As it is not only good habit to have but is essential if you don't want be infected by germs or bacteria. And so it's also important for being healthy.

I am almost paranoid about it! I have a very low immune system so i have to be real careful about avoiding any bacteria. Its so easy for me to pick up something just from common germs.

I always wash my hands after using the bathroom. It is good hygene, that must be taught to people when they are young children. I have seen many women never wash their hands in there, and then go eat. I have also seen the waitresses do that, and that is against the law.

hi,It's not only a bad habit,it leads to some diseases also.Keeping hands clean and hygenic is important as we eat with them and hands will be used for different purposes.By seeing us kids also take it easy in learning this habit.Because they play with different people and different items,if they eat the food without washing hands even after going to toilets also,its harm.

Honestly, I really did not start until a couple of weeks ago. I wonder if the amount one knows about bacteria and how easy it is to contract disease from common germs determines the frequency of hand-washing? Because up until my Bio 1020 class, in which I have an instructor who has opened my eyes to the bacteria world, I never really thought about it. But now, with new knowledge, I am almost paranoid about it!
