Please (really) wash your hands.

Read a rather interesting article today and something caught my eye:

From Medical News Today:

Although 95% of people said they washed their hands with soap where possible, 92% of phones and 82% of hands had bacteria on them.

I am really bothered when I am in the restroom and I can hear that you left the restroom without washing your hands after flushing. That is disgusting. Do you know what you are passing along? E. coli and Salmonella, among other things. Yes, the very same things that have killed people from contaminated food.

Where are your hands all day?

  • On the phone
  • On the computer
  • On the door
  • On your face
  • Probably in your food
Is it so hard to wash them for a minute? Not even a full minute! Just 30 seconds is better than nothing!

 

And no, sticking your hand under the faucet for 5 seconds does not count. Might as well just lick your hands right then and there.

 

What’s the proper hand washing method?
Very simple. Follow these steps:
See? Not so hard.

 

Do the rest of the world a favor and just wash your hands. Please and thank you!

 

And, Happy (late) Handwashing Day (October 15)!

 

Ugh. How do people NOT wash their hands. Gross.
You people should be ashamed of yourselves… Please do not touch ANYTHING! Thanks.

  1. 20 seconds is hella short! I’m the one that washes my hand for hella long so you just gotta wait! What if the person behind you was making your food. Imagine eating your own poop. NASTY!

    You never know! The next person you shake hands with or borrow a pen from might not have washed their hands (apparently that would be 4 out of every 5 people you meet…). That just really bothers me.

    TIME TO WIPE DOWN COMPUTER AND PHONES WITH ALCOHOL! =)

    I feel sick just thinking about people not washing their hands and food…
