Maybe once or twice, whenever they feel llike they need washing. As Nightbirdflying already posted on here, "you need to expose yourself to some germs in order to build up a strong immuned system...." Say what you want, I've been like this all my life and I never get sick or anything.
I probably wash mine about the same... as long as I'm working that day. :P Otherwise less than 10.
Cook. But even there, I wash my hands more than anybody else. I'm also the only person who does the temperature logs, so maybe I'm the only one who actually cares about food safety.
I don't count. If they need washing, for hygiene or sticky or just dirty, then wash them. Else, don't.
yeah your a psycho
3 times before prayers
6 times before and after meals
about 10 times for other occasions.
My washing hands is not only for cleanliness
but most importantly for power and protection
as taught in the Holy Books:
"Whoso wisheth to pray, let him wash his hands, and while he washeth, let him say:
Strengthen my hand, O my God, that it may take hold of Thy Book with such steadfastness that the hosts of the world shall have no power over it. Guard it, then, from meddling with whatsoever doth not belong unto it. Thou art, verily, the Almighty, the Most Powerful."
(Baha'u'llah, Prayers and Meditations by Baha'u'llah, p. 313)
5-7 times a day
Id say about 10
75-100...vet tech student
Fifty? Its not ocd, I cook and clean and touch animals all day ( allergic).
10 to 40 times :)
3-5 times. Unless I'm cooking chicken or messing with ground beef--then it's every 4 minutes or so.
I never counted but probably atleast 25. More on the increaslingly rare days when I work.
Probably 20 or so times a day. I work in a convention center and meet a lot of people from all over the world. Plus it isn't just about 'us' and our immune system. It would be good if those who say once or twice, washed their hands at least after going to the bathroom. Especially before touching surfaces in common areas or preparing food. Even if a person wants to introduce more germs into their lives, they shouldn't force their germs on others.
On average 69 times for nine seconds each, with soap, 57 applications of of antibacterial hand sanitizer, then moisturizer, 96 three second hand washes with no soap. I have a condition.
Not a lot.
i guess I've never kept track ... at least five times a day and maybe as many as a dozen
That is a tad excessive.... you'll wash off all the bodies natural defenses and leave yourself exposed to other problems... Plus the natural oils in your hands will deplete over time..... Just wipe them under your arm pits once in a while like us surgeons do....
ahhh but steroid cream will cause skin thinning (striae) and depending what you touch next will be absorbed quicker by different skin types.... for instance your eyelids and private parts absorb 200 to 300 x more of the steroid than your hands do... my advice is to wash less frequently and let me head over and blow them dry for you....
