Alot easier than the one that my boy uses. But I guess he hasn't quite mastered the aim of his dad yet.
    Hehehe this gave me a good giggle

    ^^^this. My kids are the ones that have learnt the full clinical hand wash procedure not because i am completely germ obsessed, its just how i wash my hands now. I never thought about it before, but other people must think i'm strange when they see i'm soaping up for 5 mins & scrubbing away at the backs of my wrists. Hmmmmm.

    I wash my hands before an after all toilet use. This includes just replacing a toilet roll or helping DD put her knickers back on. Soap and water and thorough lather. I also hate it when I can't dry my hands!!! I stand under those dryers in the public loos for soooo long and make the kids do the same hahahaha

    At the risk of sounding like a complete and utter germaphobe...

    Do people understand that their own poop, and consequently their own bathrooms, contain bacteria - it's not just public toilets

    So for those who don't wash after weeing - if you do a wee, you touch the toilet button and the door handle (and if you live with a man, probably the toilet seat too )...do you really just walk on out without washing your hands?

    I can't bring myself to touch a damp tap in a public toilet. I use hand sanatiser after the loo after I've gone outside of the toilet away from the doors etc. I use sanatiser at home too after nappy changes and after touching raw food etc. I also sanatize after being at the shops.

    Yes, i wash my hands every time where ever i am
    I use soap and make sure to give my hands a decent scrub - the only time i wouldn't use soap is if it was a manky bar of soap in a public toilet (but this is rare as most have the pump soap these days).
    I also wash my hands as soon i get home from being out and about, before food prep, after food prep, nappy changes etc - i wash my hands a lot.

    If i'm in a public toilet, I will always wash my hands with soap and dry them until they are no longer damp. If I need to open any doors, i'll pull my sleeve down over my hand to do it or use the bottom of my top.

    If i'm at home, I don't bother washing my hands after a wee at the moment, being pregnant the amount of times I wee in an hour is amazing and if I wash my hands too often I get eczema on my hands.
