Do you really always wash your hands?

I do not ... I will if there is something on them or I was messing with something that I know is very germy.... but other than that I dont... I think I have only had like 2 colds in my life

and my sister in law is obsessed with hand sanitizer and cleanliness.... but is sick like every other week....

  • I'm not a big hand washer.. until I started doing in house daycare and now I am required to, so I do.
    Studies have shown that all the santitation we do isn't always a good thing. We are getting "super-bugs" out there that have become more resistant because of it.

  • I always wash or sanitize my hands before I eat and after using the bathroom. But that's about the only time I'm really adament about it.

  • Oh and yeah after touching something germy or cooking with raw meat or something lol. Of course. But that's just common sense!

  • I wash my hands after going potty and before cooking, but that is it, and I HATE the sanitzers.

    Over sanitizing is why people are getting so sick all the time. Your body no longer knows how to fight off disease. Some bacteria is actually healthy, our bodies need it.

  • YES!!! Please wash your hands.... just b/c you are not getting sick doesn't mean you aren't spreading germs around and getting others sick!!!

  • I always wash my hands. Don't people know that you can pick up the nastiest bacteria like parasites and it gets into your system. Ever since I heard that...I'm always washing my hands.
