3 Things Germaphobes Do That Aren’t That Crazy
Check out three things that germaphobes do that aren't that crazy. In fact, they're things that everyone should probably do.
1. Holding your breath when someone sneezes. Especially if they're sick. Because right after they sneeze, there are tiny droplets of whatever sickness floating around everywhere.
So it’s not a bad idea to hold your breath for three to four seconds . . . until the droplets fall to the floor.
2. Washing your hands after you pump gas. According to a recent study, gas pumps are the most germ-filled things people touch on their way to work. (I heard that restaurant menus are dirtier than their toilets. Ewww!)
3. Using a paper towel to open a public restroom door. Or when you have to touch pretty much anything in a public bathroom.
If you really want to do it right, wash your hands for at least 20 seconds after you're done . . . then use a paper towel to turn off the faucet AND to push the door open when you leave.
