  • I only wash before if I've been doing something that got my hands dirty just before. (or if I was grocery shopping in a public place, hands on germy carts, etc. ick) But I ALWAYS, ALLLWAYS wash after. Everyone in my house does. And if I'm watching my friend's children, they do too. (which is not a habit that they practice at home, and it grosses me right the heck out)

  • I use hand sanitizer. We have them all over the house. I cringe at the thought of eating with germy hands.

  • Never heard of washing them before...unless I had just took out the garbage or something nasty...then I might.

    but I ALWAYS do after.

  • I only wash before if I've just been handling raw meat, taken out the trash, been gardening, etc. Otherwise, no. But ALWAYS after.
