Colds, flu and tummy bugs are some of the infectious diseases which can be prevented if we wash our hands properly.  

We asked our users weather they wash their hands the correct way in order for them to stay healthy. Here’s what they had to say.

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.
