Plus, you're touching the trolley then picking up an item, then trolley again, then another item- over and over.
So when you start to think about it everything you buy is probably covered in germs. Also you don't know how clean the people who've stacked the shelves are or who else has touched items.
I'm a germaphobe so I try and tell myself I can't clean everything but atleast it might be good for my immune system

I do not wash my hands after weeing in a public toilet, and this is because I don't touch anything...i use the sleeve of my top to open/close doors and (for lack of a more tactful description) I drip dry lol! I find the idea of having to touch anything in a public toilet abhorrent, especially the tap at the end of the trip - a tap that everyone has touched after they've used the toilet. At home though I always wash my hands after any loo visit! My kids are made to wash their hands after a wee as well.

But, I still thought it was gross because working with kids I wash my hands every opportunity I get! I shudder to think what's on my hands after collecting up 25 worksheets from their hands!

I find the idea gross, it takes 30 seconds to wash your hands properly, if you don't want to touch the tap after washing your hands, then use a piece of paper towel to turn it off.

This shouldn't even be a question
It's gross. Full stop! Unless you're about to hop in the shower straight after though, that's the only exception, just!

Yeah gross! I use a square of toilet paper to latch the door, then I hover over the seat, then use another square of paper to flush and unlatch the door, then some to turn off the tap after washing hands. But I'm a bit of a germophobe when it comes to publuc toilets.
