    When do you wash your hands

    Have you changed your hand washing regime?

    I'm well trained after SARs. I think I've added a couple of extra washes to my daily routine.

    I always wash my hands after coming home, before sitting down to meals and after meals, after using the toilet and before/during meal preparations. Have been doing that since childhood, so haven't changed my habits much.

    The locals need a slap on their wrists for taking a leak and heading straight out the gents. Pretty appalling hygiene standards this place got.

    It’s funny you say this. In my office of professional workers, the majority of local folk do wash their hands in the gents, but there is a concerning minority that do not.

    But what do you know this month, now with the spectre of the horrible coronavirus, I saw even the unclean folk lathering up for at least a good 20 seconds. So typical.

    Me personally, I have always washed my hands before eating, after the bathroom, and upon arriving home. In this coronavirus era, I have added an extra few washes per day for prudence. Probably unnecessary but the Aesop soap I use smells great.

    Hate to be that guy... but sometimes, unless a washroom has one of those automatic faucets and there is a clean blow dryer/filled napkin dispenser lying around, I feel the risk of picking up something at least after a number 1 without washing my hands is lower.

    Cue the line about not pissing on your hands.

    Do you use many washrooms that don't have napkins or hand dryers? In Hong Kong?

    Unless you have the habit of using public bathrooms naked, you always have something to dry your hands on. There's also just body heat.

    Air blowers are disgusting bacteria farms- I never use them.
