How many times a day?

do you wash your hands? Seems like I am constantly washing mine. Also do you wash before each meal?

  • before each meal, after handling raw food, dirty diapers and stuff among those lines, or after cleaning to get off any excess cleaning spray off my hands before i put them into my mouth, and after using the bathroom.

  • I use hand sanitizer a lot. If I touch the trash or something like that lol. So I normally only wash them when I go tohe bathroom and when I am doing dishes they are in soupy water so I guess that is washing them right? LOL....I also wash them of course when I shower. I don't wash them when I eat, but that is cause I use hand sanitizer all the time lol

  • I couldn't even tell you how many times a day I wash my hands. I'm not OCD about it, and I don't usually wash before each meal, but being a SAHM, my hands touch a lot of sticky/messy things in a day! I always wash them before I cook. And if I'm feeling sneezy or there is someone sick in the house I wash them more often...but it always feels like I'm washing them!

  • I couldn't even tell you. Definitely before touching food, always when I get home from my kids school, anytime I touch anything that I think is gross, plus multiple times in between.

  • Depends how much I'm cooking & baking. If it's a big kitchen day for me, I wash them more times than I can count. A day like today where I'm justly just relaxing, I won't wash them as many times - around 10 is the least. I never use sanitizer at home - if I'm home and they need to be cleaned, I wash them. Sanitizer is only for when I'm out & about and don't have access to soap & water - for me.
