shaking dirty hands


Only 5% of people are washing their hands correctly after using the crapper. Even worse is the fact that 23% don’t even bother using soap!

It’s the reason we’re always sick, this rampant non-washing, and shaking a dirty hands spreads more disease than touch a NYC subway pole.
