Germs Hiding in Restrooms


Just the other day I walked into public rest room at the boardwalk. The place smelled like the typical seaside washroom sprayed with strong chemical cleaners to clean and cover up unpleasant odors. Then it struck me that probably hundreds or thousands of people use this restroom each day. I'm not a germ a phobic, but this made me shudder just a little bit. There must be germs all over the fixtures, doors, mirrors, and sinks. And there are certainly germs hiding in the restroom everywhere that you look.

Avoiding Germs
These nasty germs might carry everything from cold germs to something more ominous. Well, the best way to avoid this problem is to never use a public restroom. You need a strong constitution for this and it probably ain't gonna happen soon. So, here are a few tips on avoiding germs hiding in restrooms.

Germ Barriers
It is good common sense that the way to avoid germs hiding in restrooms is to keep those hands clean. Of course, it is kind of difficult to avoid touching any of the fixtures in the public restroom. Everyone who enters the restroom touches the same door handles, faucets, and sinks. The CDC advises people to use paper towels as a germ barrier when touching faucets or door handles in restrooms. Carrying a natural "Hand Sanitizer" is also a good option.

Hand Washing
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) also warns people to thoroughly wash their hands after using the restroom. Use the paper towels to dry the hands completely. They find that using paper towels to dry hands is the best approach to avoiding germs. Those who use the air dryers have to touch the dryer or press a button to activated the dryer. This approach leads to attracting even more germs. In addition, those who are dryer happy tend not to dry their hands completely. Seems statistics show that those individuals wind up wiping their damp hands on their clothing which picks up more germs too.

Conclusion
We live in a society that is concerned about germs and the effect they have on our complete well-being. True wellness and body care begins with taking care of the small things and perhaps reading important sources of information geared toward keeping us healthy and avoiding the hazards in our environment.
