Germaphobe

Am I weird or is this normal? I think it's gross that most bathroom faucets you have to touch the same place to turn it off and on. What's the point of washing your hands if you are just going to touch the same handle to turn it off that you used when your hands were dirty? Usually in public restrooms I will use the paper towels I dry my hands with to turn off the water, because I don't want to touch the dirty knob right after I washed my hands. Please tell me I'm not the only one who does this lol.

You're not the only one. :) I have a paper which shows that people should turn off the water with a paper towel just for that reason. So you're one smart woman!

Yeah, I hardly ever touch flush handles in public restrooms, I use my foot, I can't imagine how many germs must be in there! And the doorknobs too, I prefer to use a paper towel to open the doors, there's so many people who don't wash their hands. Yuck!

Also gas pumps!
I always use a towel and also spray my hands with ViraBlock . I always used to use Purell, but my doctor recommended an antiseptic hand wash vs a sanitizer. There is a difference!
