Christopher Zoony De Croes: Should see how many don't bother to wash hands at all after using the toilet.

Lazarus Ntsoereng: It's cold,does our public toilets have warm water?

Adrian Matthew Tyler: I don't wash my hands, unless I take a dump.

Vanessa Reynolds: Public restrooms are the worse!! So many women just don't wash their hands, and it doesn't matter that I complain to them, they just turn around and leave.

Aviwe Musa : Life is too short to wash your hands every time you go to the toilet... bomb might explode while you busy washing hands.
