Whenever i wash my hands?

A: nope, it sounds girly Well I also hate having dry skin so I always put lotion on or body butter No, but I don''t think lotion will kill you! Yes, there are people like that, including me. It is not hurting a thing. When you get older you will have nice soft young looking hands. Nope...why would water make your hands feel dry? usually makes mine feel wet! Not me...I do get paranoid when I wash the dishes though....like I''m scared to have my hands end up all nastey and wrinkley looking like some older people I know [and even some of my friends] like, I dunno, i''m too lazy to put on lotion, so I just wear gloves when washing the dishes... I...

Is it OK to wash my hands in my own spit?

A: As long as you don''t touch anything after, yes. But you need a lot of spit to "wash", better to settle for just getting the worst of the grime off and get the rest off with a proper wash in wee or water from a tap like normal people. yes if you want to Umm ok... I don''t know why you would want to but choose Dettol cream with water or soap. Don''t wash your hands in your spit coz there is so much bacteria living in just one human mouth. If there are no taps nearby, then go to a restroom or something, coz it will just make your hands dirtier. no you are then contaminating your hands with other germs that you could spread to others eg. flu, hep, tb, etc use water & soap Thats disgusting you pig!...


Can I use baby soap/shampoo when washing my hands prior to putting contact lenses in?

A: I would personally recommend an antibacterial soap to kill germs, you never know what lingers and eye infections are no fun!! Someone has to sell antibacterial dish soap or body soap, make certain you scrub up well and rinse well also, then I would dry my hands on paper towels so you don''t get more germs that could lurk in a towel. Paper towels are usually less lint prevalent also, lint can irritate the eye as well!! Good luck!! : ) Wash will soap, and then rinse well. Don''t ever use plain water. It will not kill germs that can cause infections. Good Luck. Baby shampoo and soap also has additives. I used glycerine soaps (heck even my hardware store has this). Just use the soap you got until you find something...


What''s the proper washing technique for washing my hands?

A: Wash your hands for a minimum of 15-20 seconds. This equates to the amount of time it would take to sing ''Happy Birthday'' twice. Use warm water and a mild cleanser, so as not to strip your skin of its own natural moisture. Remember to wash not only your hands, but also your wrists, in between your fingers and under your fingernails. Everyday cleansing with Dove Bar helps skin retain significantly more moisture than cleansing with soap....

HygieneFilter: should I always use soap when washing my hands?

A: Urine is sterile. So even if you did get some on your hands while peeing, no germs were deposited on your skin, and the anti-bacterial action of soap is unnecessary. The same is true in other situations like most food prep. On the other hand, soap cuts grease and is useful if washing up after eating a hamburger by hand, or other greasy tasks. So, you are not that much wrong about your assumption. However. This doesn''t seem to be the kind of thing you want to get into an ongoing battle over with the g/f. If she''s happier if you wash with soap and water, wash with soap and water....
