Washing Your Hands After Bathroom

I can only assume that most of us wash our hands after using a public restroom. you wash your hands after using a bathroom in your house? How about in a friend's house?

  • My whole family washes their hands after EVERY trip to the restroom, whether it be friend, ours or public!

  • I'm an odd duck..

    I do not only wash my hands after using the restroom, at home and when out and about.. I always wash my hands before going to the bathroom, especially when out and about. I know what all has come into contact with what I'm wiping. However, I have no idea what all kinds of crap/residue is on my hands (think about it: when out all the things we touch and what all we can pick up, when at home cooking/cleaning/picking stuff up off the floor...etc..etc. lots of crap gets on our hands.. lol)

  • I do, if I want to lead by example for my kids, then they need to know thats how its done. Honestly, whatever we instill in them becomes second nature if we keep at it long enough for it to become, "normal routine"

  • I rarely see people wash their hands in public restrooms. Not if I pee in the middle of the night
