Do you always wash hands before you eat at a restaurant?edit- just learned this

I usually do.  I don't like those germicidal cleaners. They may kill germs, but I don't feel that my hands are clean then. What do you do?

edited to add:  My friend just emailed that in the Heloise column of her newspaper that it said that using those blow dryers just blows germs onto your hands!  :(    The recommendation was (if no paper towels) use the TP to dry hands or use sanitizer.

But the sanitizer makes my hands feel so dry. :(  And I feel that the dirt is still there. :(

Germx works for me. You still have to get out of the bathroom and they don't always have paper towels. Then you will be touching a door that people touch after they pee and poop and don't wash their hands and then you're going to eat.
Yep hand Sanitizer works great.

I see your point, and I am OK using my shirt or sweater to open the bathroom door, but this leaves me touching the faucet, which isn't a problem if I can do it with a paper towel, but when there aren't paper towels, I don't have a choice. Maybe I need to wash hands and also use the sanitizer when I get back to the table. :(

You would have to.
Which is why I just use sanitizer.

I almost always do, on the rare occasion I don't have to pee when I get there, I usually have to take a kid into the bathroom anyway.
I very rarely use hand sanitizer.
