My view is, I take a shower every day, hence my hands are cleaned everyday, because I use them to soap-up the rest of my body. Soap on hand = clean hands.
So, no need to wash my hands with soap
before/after usual daily tasks, only if I get my hands dirty (before&after eating a burger, after fixing a pipe, before cuddling a baby, after cuddling a dog). For other daily tasks, I tend to rely on a rule of thumb of a good wash up with water and an inversion of the 42 seconds rule
Case in point: the g/f saw me just washing my hand (w/o soap) after a quick pee
, and insisted on my using soap (not just water) everytime from now on.
While I know it's more hygienic to soap-up rather than just water-up my post-loo hands, I always felt I was able to tell when my hands needed more than just watering, and thus was able to go about my duties faster
I know she's right about it, obviously, but am I that much wrong about my asumption?
