Washing Hands

I noticed at home we wash our hands before eating, preparing food, and after using the bathroom but when we go out in public we will wash our hands after using the bathroom but not before eating.

How often do you wash your hands when you are away from home especially when you are going out to eat?

Also we never use hand sanitizers.

  • I have always thought this was really strange. People make their kids wash their hands before eating when at home-in a basically clean environment-but in a restaurant, when the kids have touched lots of things that strangers have touched, and the parents don't take the kids to wash before eating. We always wash before eating.
