I don't really don't know, obviously every time I go to the loo, before and after touching food, if I've had to touch the bin, empty the Hoover ....

I'm not really too worried about touching surfaces " in doors" but if I was using public transport I have hand sanitizer if I get worried.

When I need/have to.

If I take a leak, I'll wash my hands, but there's dudes who don't. Never understood that.

PhilipMarc What really grosses me out is the amount of times I've been in the toilets in a Supermarket and seen guys coming out of the traps and washing one hand, that is absolutely disgusting and I'm not shy in being vocal about it.

Pfs Maybe it's most guys on a building site but that isn't a true reflection on the real percentages of men, and I still think that (Most Guys) is a bit much, and to be honest with you, I don't think girl are really much better.

We wash our hands all the time and always have done. As soon as we enter the house we take off our shoes and wash our hands. Obviously after using the lav, & in the bath or shower. Before/during/after preparing foods (as you touch many different foods). Touching the bin, every time we use the wheelie bins, after gardening. After putting the shopping away & wipe down all surfaces etc... We use a lot of soap... Image

I am still washing my hands and have never cut down and I have really touched surfaces when I was out as I have a low immune system so was always careful before. I never shake hands with people but then again never did.

I don’t wash mine for quite as long as I did in the first lockdown but still wash them about as often. I’m not overly worried about touching surfaces as the science seems to have moved the emphasis to airborne covid transmission.

I still stick to Covid-19 rules of regular handwashing of 20 seconds or using hand gel/sanitiser. Also I tend to have a clean tissue paper to open the women's toilet door on exit.

brendablue oh no, do you have to use any hand moisturiser because of the dry out of washing your hands too often. Thanks for your comment

I couldn't give you an exact number. I wash them when I've been to the bathroom, before and after touching food, after touching the bins outside. I use hand sanitizer when I'm out and after I have changed my sons nappy. I definitely do it more now than I did before covid.
