How Many People Skip Out on Washing Their Hands?

Do you wash your hands EVERY time you use a public restroom?

Perhaps you wash your hands religiously after using the restroom at a store or restaurant, but not so much at work. Who cares, you know all those people in the office and they’re like family, right? You can let the hand-washing slide there. Ew! Family members and those donut-eating co-workers have germs too.

Just how many people skip washing their hands at public restrooms and go ahead and spread the germs?

A new survey from the Bradley Corporation (a manufacturer of plumbing fixtures) says 29 percent of us sometimes skip washing hands. Right, because public restrooms are full of germs and who wants to tough those sinks.

One percent confess they never wash after using a public restroom.

The rest of us are good citizens and non-germ-spreaders. 70 percent of Americans say they always wash their hands.

We have a big can of Lysol here at the radio station for the non-washers. With flu season coming up, we’re preparing to hose them down.

On the bright side, the non-washers do keep the hand sanitizer companies in business. So they’re good for the economy if you want to look at it that way.
