  • All the time. When I'm cooking or baking, I was them every time I touch something, I'll wash them like 30 times while I'm making a cake. Anytime anything gets on them I have to wash them again. I'm not OCD I just don't like stuff on my hands and I don't like them to smell - when I'm out & about I use Purell but as soon as I'm home I have to wash that off too!

  • I can't even eat a sandwich unless something is wrapped around it first. I absolutely hate any dirt or sticky stuff on my hands so not only do I wash them all the time but I also carry a little bottle of anti-bacterial with me.

  • 30 times a day or so. I work at a daycare. Lots of boogers and poop means lots of hand washing lol On the weekends when I have off? Not so much but still frequently.

  • Never counted or anything, but I know I wash my hands A LOT!! BTW if anyone is interested, Dawn has a dish soap called Hand sucks....made my hands sooo dry and actually took a week for them to heal. My MIL used the same thing and it caused her skin on her finger tips to peel....just thought I would pass it on....

  • I wash them when they're dirty or before I'm going to cook or eat something. Usually, a swipe on my jeans will do the trick. I am not a germaphobe. I don't even own any hand sanitizer. GASP!
