    I’ve seen way too many people leaving public restrooms without washing their hands. Half of the time I think it’s because they’re lazy, but also I believe it’s because they don’t want to wait until the hand dryer. Is there a way that all restrooms can install or required to have a hand sanitizer pump for those in a rush? Are hand sanitizers as effective as washing for 15 seconds under the sink?

    Hand sanitizers are proven to kill 99% of germs that lead to illness! They are great for on the go on if people are too rushed, although I always enjoy a good hand washing!

    I have to keep hand sanitizer in my car, my purse, kitchen, bedroom, and last but not least, bathroom. So many places have them for cheap and they smell great. Thanks for the link-I can’t believe only 77% of bathroom users wash their hands! Gross!

    This is good information to have. I’m glad that you’ve shared it with all of us. I know that it’s definitely changed my outlook.

    I’ve honestly come to the point where I don’t trust any public restroom, no matter how clean it appears to be. When you wash your hands, you’re touching the knobs and buttons other dirty hands have touched. Though they have motion activated devices now, there’s still that germ infested door handle to worry about.

    Thank God that public restrooms are now providing touchless sinks and towel dispensers because reading those statistics are making me think twice about public bathrooms. Why do people think it’s ok to not wash their hands? Yak.

    I guess people don’t really think about the level of germs we come into contact per day or even per hour. I wonder how dirty our keyboards are just from eating at our desks, touching paper, sharing mouses, and touching our faces as we think. Kind of gross the more I think about it.

    I’ve always known that not 100% of bathroom users wash their hands, but didn’t know it was that bad. Time to install some hand sanitizers!

    I have to use the paper towel that I dry my hands with, to open the door. I don’t know why people can’t take 15 seconds to wash their hands. Good thing they invented hand sanitizer.

    Thanks for providing that stats! Kind of grosses me out, but makes me thankful that I always keep hand sanitizer with me. It’s normally just for the times when I want to wash my hands, but cant. Now I feel like I should wash AND sanitize after using a public restroom.

  12. Molly - July 6th, 2011 at 6:31 am

    Sorry for the gross out, but knowledge is power!

    This is really good to know. Bathrooms are places that can be full of bacteria. It’s very important to protect ourselves!

    Ick ick ick. I have seen/heard people leaving the restroom without washing their hands before, but I didn’t know it was that bad either! I think all restrooms should have hand sanitizers on their way out too, at least some people who don’t wash would probably use those right?!

    I feel that I have unintentionally been doing my own restroom hygiene study and been finding out how many of my friends don’t wash their hands after going to the bathroom… results are shocking.

  16. Brianna - December 13th, 2011 at 3:19 pm

    Being sick right now I totally understand the importance of keeping clean! The blog was a great reference but more than anything it made me more concsience of what I am doing with my hands during the day! Thanks!

    It’s surprising how many people actually go without washing their hands after using the bathroom. Sick.

  18. LW - October 4th, 2013 at 9:54 pm

    Shocking that many people will leave the bathroom without washing their hands. Thanks for the interesting read! Definitely hope there will be more studies on the way people behave in public bathrooms and why women use soap for hand washing more than men.
