May. 24th, 2012 @ 08:26 pm Washing and drying hands
Current Mood: impressedimpressed
If you're not one of the 16% of people who don't wash their hands after using the toilet (and thus get poop on their smartphone), you will have to dry your hands afterwards. andrewducker linked me to a TEDx video on how to dry your hands with a single paper towel.
I can verify that it works: we have the tri-fold type in the office, and my hands were dry after doing this. You should start using this method too.

And if you're one of the icky people who don't wash their hands, remind me of that fact when next we meet -- I'll avoid shaking your hand or handling your phone.

I ALWAYS wash my hands with soap after using the toilet! Here in Japan VERY few people do-- they just run their fingertips under the water for a second or two. Gross.

My mum used to teach me things like this. How to choose the right amount of toilet paper you need. How to fold it. How to wash your hands thoroughly. How to dry them. How to blow your nose. How to brush your teeth. That's part of what mothers teach their children. Why are there adults that don't know this? Why is it on TED?

My parents have fabric towels at home, not paper towels. I was taught basic hygience with towels, not paper ones. So no-one was taught how to dry their hands with paper towels in the most efficient way. At least, I wasn't.

We went camping every holiday and there were always outings, with school or with family. My mother taught me to always bring tissues and how to use everything sparingly while being as clean as possible.
