Now really think about this....Every time I go out to eat, I'm hoping that who ever is preparing my food has truely washed their hands. Some people are obsessive about it, and wash them constantly, I had a friend who did this, and she was sick more times than not. Her doctor told her it was the antibactierial soap she was using 50 times a day, it was killing off even the good germs she needed to fight off all the bad. I wash my hands alot, but I deal with little kids, so with diaper changes, and runny noses, you tend to wash more than usual, and my hands definetly show it. I'm constantly adding lotion. So is there a happy medium, of how many times you should wash your hands?

I wash my hands often but not obsessive about it Being a nurse by trade makes me do it. LOL AS eating out I was in a restaurant once and not a fast food place either. Suppose to have been a nicer place. Seen this young lady go potty and leave Not a problem Cept she went into the kitchen Being a nervy sort of person that I am I followed. ASked for the manager while I had a hold of her shoulder. Stated the fact that she hadn't washed her hands and that I was leaving with the crew that had come with me Which we did. Musta been about 30 of us. Too bad. Once I told them what went on they all agreed and we all got up Wonder if the chick got fired. We laughed later about how nervy I was Right or wrong I don't know Just couldn't eat knowing that fact YUCK!!!!!! Wendy

That's what I'm talking about, Makes you never want to eat out, know that there are people that aren't washing their hands,

Wash my hands all the time using Softsoap. They say it doesn't really help you keep bacteria away, but it really seems to help me, especially after being around my young nephews, who get me sick all the time. Also a habit I got drilled into me young, when we used to use Lava soap. My favorite though was always Irish Spring, but it never made me think of Ireland.
