This will only make me MORE neurotic

I am an obsessive hand-washer. I wash my hands thoroughly every time I use the restroom at work, and then I turn the faucet handle off with a paper towel, then open the door with the paper towel, not throwing it away until I get back to my desk.

At home, I wash my hands if I get even a little peanut butter or jelly or some other food substance on my hands. (Ohhh, to be a kid who would rather just wipe my hands on my jeans. It would save me SO much time over a year.)

Anyway, all the hand-washing means that my hands stay pretty chapped, especially in the winter. This week they're so bad that I've started using my new Burt's Bees Coconut Foot Cream on them! (That's some heavy-duty stuff.) But do you want to know what compels me to wash them so often and so well? Things like this (via):




You are so welcome. Have a lovely day.

ahh, a few germs won't hurt right???? :)

Ok, yeah that is gross - I am not OCD or a germaphobe by any means, but yeah that picture is kind of ick!

I completely just gagged!

And I do the same bathroom trick when washing my hands. Also, it completely grosses me out when you see someone leave a public restroom without washing their hands. And one of my biggest pet peeves is when restroom doors don't "push" out, but "pull" in. Gross!!

GROSS!!! I am SO OCD about germs and being clean... we have a few ladies in our building that don't wash their hands after they use the restroom and it drives me nuts! DISGUSTING!

I am a hand washer, too, but not to an OCD level... common sense level. I do get ticked when there is no way to grab a public bathroom door (no paper towels or only a knob) to exit.

Hubby using my computer drives me crazy because I know his hands are not as clean as I want them to be to use my keyboard.

Hey Katherine! Just came over from Patrice's blog! I hear ya on the chapped hands from over washing....me too! My daughter and I just started making hard lotion bars! They are awesome! I just have one sitting out at all times on a decorative plate in my kitchen near the sink. I use it every time I wash my hands. I also keep one in a tin in my purse! Our Etsy sight is not quick finished but I'll be glad to send you a sample bar to try! Just email me at jmparris (at) cableone (dot) net. We're in Jacksonville, AL...not too far from you! =)

Nice. We are the same Katherine and my hands are cracked to prove it.

Thanks for that. :)

I don't wash my hands every single time I go to the bathroom. There, I said it.
