For real. Sometimes you have to brush your teeth in a public bathroom, though. Like, after getting off a plane. That's the only place I can think of.

My kids all went to preschool at a super green, environmentally friendly NATURE CENTER. They agree: cleanliness trumps the 8 extra seconds of running water. Paper towel turn off is the rule. Because think of all the flushing you'd have to do if you ended up with an e. coli infection!!! You're saving water in the long run.

These really do make my day. Hahaha that is so funny. It would've been great if you just stared at her in disbelief and simply said, "germs, lady. germs."

Haha, fair call!

Oh yeah, I completely understand. I hate the towel holders that make you push the lever down to get the paper. When I see one of those, I sometimes push the lever down a few times before washing so all I have to do is tear...which I just realized makes me part of the problem. Oh my. I think I may have a lot to rethink right now.

my mom taught me to do the SAME thing when i was little... i've never forgotten. and it's even better when the faucets in public restrooms are automatic, so you don't have to touch anything... boy i love those, whoever invented them probably washed their hands like we do. ;) smart cookie.

i love that! i always crank some paper out before i start washing my hands, then turn off the faucet with paper towel. people look at me like i am crazy. it's like they don't understand how germs work. haha!

This is so funny and cute!
I do this all the time. I find it disgusting when people leave restrooms without washing their hands. I can't even touch the door knob with my bare hands!

Thanks for the wonderful comment.



LOVE!

I do the same thing! They taught me at school to do the same thing. But you know what I really really get confused about...when the restrooms have the air blow dryer thing...how are you supposed to keep cleans when you dont have towel to dry with??
