When you're in a public bathroom, the last thing you want to do is TOUCH ANYTHING. And apparently a lot of us go to great lengths to make sure we don't.
According to a new survey of over 1,000 U.S. adults, 64% of us use our foot to flush the toilet . . . 60% use a paper towel to touch the door handle . . . 37% use one to turn the faucet on and off . . . and 48% use our hip to open the door.
The study also looked at how often we wash our hands, and it shouldn't surprise you that women are better about it than men are. 74% of women said they ALWAYS wash up, compared to 60% of men.
And 38% of men said they frequently see other guys leave the bathroom without washing, compared to 25% of women.
But overall, NONE of us are great about it. 70% of the people surveyed admitted that they sometimes just RINSE their hands, and don't actually use soap. (PR Newswire)
