Brits Don’t Wash Hands after Using Loo

A recent study shows that almost half of all Brits don’t wash their hands after they use the toilet. The reason: they are too lazy or don’t have time to do it.

This reveals not only bad hygiene but also that people these days are really stressed and rushed and cannot find a minute to even dry their hands properly. The experts remind us that it is really important for us to wash our hands after using the toilet to avoid infections. Unwashed hands can affect not only our health but the one of the people around us.

Another interesting fact is that more than the half of the British men admit that they are more likely to have extra time in bed instead of taking a morning shower. Together with that you might be amazed to find out that one quarter of the Brits don’t change their bed sheets every week but only once in a month.

When it comes to the kitchen the results are not very different. One in every twenty people says they have never cleaned their fridge and 20% of all did it but an year ago.

According to professor John Oxford, the fact that we live in the 21st century is very important for our lifestyle. The living today is much more rushed than it was 20 years ago and this affects our hygiene and habits.
