Handwashing - How Extreme Are You?

Public health directive is to wash your hands for 20 seconds, but now that we're mostly staying at home and not going out, are we still keeping this up?

    Does being a tradie mean you don't have to wash your hands?

    Always washed my hands for more than 20 seconds even before. How else do you clean between the nails and fingers?

    if you want to test your skills, apply peanut butter on your hands then clean.

      Shit might be better so no-one is tempted to lick their fingers if they don't clean it all off first go!

      I was a germaphobe before I started working from home, but have now relaxed up a little bit (still washing with soap and water, but it's probably 10 seconds).

    For most of my working career (~30 years) I've washed my hands often and extensively. Most of my career has been IT but working on manufacturing sites with lots of stuff you don't want on your hands plus the general dirt and grime that tends to accompany those sort of environments. Believe me, once you get bittering agent on your hand and incidentally touch your lip you become very fastidious about washing your hands.

    I never use to carry a hand sanitiser but now I do. Other than that more or less the same as before.

    About 25 seconds in the microwave with door off to kill any living thing inside!

    Also, 5G causes coronavirus! Tinfoil hats are in shortage in my area. It COULD happen to you.
