Why do people wash their hands after urinating?

A: In the UK the upper class male does not wash hands after taking a pee. This is regarded as something that only the middle and lower classes would bother with.

people who don't wash their hands after using the restroom...?

A: From Pristine Hygiene: Do you always wash your hands after using a public restroom? If so, do not touch that door knob on your way out! It is covered with millions of harmful bacteria. It could also be holding other hazards such as Influenza (Flu), Meningitis, Hepatitis A and many other harmful and potentially deadly micro-organisms.

Do you wash your hands after urinating? Why or why not?

A: I agree...yes...

If there is no water available to wash your hands...use the...


Does washing your hands really help prevent the spread of the flu virus?

A: Because your hands are what is in contact with others. It is also what you touch everything with. By eliminating your hand germs you also eliminate you rubbing the germs in your eyes or mouth.

As a rule of thumb, I always wash my hands thoroughly with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds when I get home after being out. I make extra sure that I do not rub my eyes, touch my mouth or nose before doing so. The germs on the hands are very easily transmitted through openings in the body. There are other methods to help prevent the spread of the flu. If you do have the flu, you can make sure others don''t get it as readily by...
