I always wash my hands before I eat if possible,unless there is no water supply,then I will use tissue paper to at least wipe my hands. I am working in hospital currently,so hands are the easiest medium to get contact with germs(bacteria,virus,etc).I have to really wash my hands thoroughly with antiseptic surgical scrub if happen to contact with bio-hazardous mediums such as blood,seputum,urine. So how about you? Do you wash your hands before you eat?

i do not always wash hands before eating. i know it is a good habit to wash hands before eating and it is good for health. i always forgot. but if i did something before eating and hands are dirty, i will definately wash my hands firstly. hope i could have this habit soon, let me try!

Hello,yenwie! In my house i have made everybody conscious of his or her health.i have given them instructions to wash the hands every time before they eat their meals or breakfast as we Indians use our hands for eating.also they must wash hands and mouth after each eating. similarly before going to bed they must brush teeth and wash feet.thanx.

YES I DO!!! Of course I hate to put those bacterias inside my gastric lining and be poisoned or contract a disease.
