Have you ever been in a public restroom and taken notice of who does and who doesn't wash their hands after using the bathroom? Well, according to a recent study, four out of five bathroom users don't wash their hands!
This statistic sparked a new ad campaign in Florida promoting hand washing because it's pretty clear we all need a friendly reminder. According to the Florida Department of Health, after just three months, this commercial has in fact changed behaviors and now eight more states are joining in on the campaign.
Your hands are only as clean as the last surface you touched so this ad not only reminds you of what your mother always told you to do, to wash your hands after going to the bathroom, but it also tells you the proper way to clean your hands. I bet you didn't know that you should wash for as long as it takes for you to sing Happy Birthday!
So ladies, tell me, do you often see people forgetting to wash their hands? If so, would you ever say something to them? Do you pass judgment on them? Or are you the type that skips out on singing Happy Birthday over the sink?
