Washing your handsThe Fail: Water, soap, rinse -- how hard can it be, right? Unfortunately, that quick little routine you perform after exiting the stall and before you use a paper towel to open the bathroom door is basically just for appearances. A recent study found that only 5 percent of public restroom users wash their hands correctly ... and if you're only lathering for a few seconds, congratulations, you're in that 95 percent of bathroom users doing it all wrong.
The Fix: The CDC recommends 20 seconds of hand-lathering, which comes out to singing the Happy Birthday song from beginning to end twice. Don't want "Happy Birthday" stuck in your head until the end of time? Check out a whole batch of alternative tunes that will measure ample hand cleaning time.
