How many times a day would you go for washing hands?

Some people like to wash their every other hour or so. What about you?

Before and after cooking, sometimes in between, after using the bathroom, after slaughtering someone Zatoichi style, after handling cleaning products while cleaning up my place and after cleaning the kitty litter.

I work with severely disabled kids (read: I change diapers and am drooled on constantly) so I have to wash my hands a lot. During my work day that means washing my hands probably at least 15 times. I’m naturally not an obsessive handwasher, I think germs are healthy.

I’m not obsessive about it, but at the office maybe only after lunch and after each restroom stop. At home, a little more, because I’m cooking and cleaning.

Maybe 20 times a day?!

Eight or nine times probably.

Average 10 times a day.

I would say 10–15 times a day, but that includes after the bathroom and before/during preparing food. 3 meals, maybe a snack, 5–7 times to the bathroom, right there is 8–10. Sometimes when I first arrive home from being out I wash my hands.

When I go to the gym I sometimes use the Purell there if you want to count that. That would add one or two at the most of Purell 3 times a week.

If you include using a wipe at the supermarket that adds one or two a week.

Depends on what you are doing, where you are, and a lot of other factors- are people around you sick, what time of year is it, etc.
