By Bes Zain in the reasoner.com
In addition to brushing your teeth and waking up, chances are you also washed your hands at least once today. Probably not a single week goes by without you actually refraining from doing something that you may think is dirty or unhygienic.
You do a lot of things every week that show you are a clean person. You try to wear clean clothes after showers, and you try to rinse your mouth after meals. You try to wash hands after going to the restroom or the bathroom, and you may also take baths after coming back from long drives. In the end, you do a lot of things because you want to be hygienic and cleaner.
There are practically hundreds of things inside your home alone that are so dirty that being regularly exposed to them can make you feel sick. However, you are still alive and probably not sick based on the germs in your house. You forgetting to wash your hands once in that ugly restroom because of the dirty wash basin does not mean you got a life threatening disease today. Being hygienic is great, but you may be someone who feels obsessed about it in indirect ways simply for one reason: society tells and shows you to. You keep on doing a lot of things thinking you are doing them to clean yourself, while at the same time you avoid being clean in hundreds of other situations, because you realize ignoring such situations is what society tells you to do too.
Do you think your hygienic ambition in life, to be clean in certain things, actually makes you clean? Here are 10 unhygienic and probably extremely dirty things you do on an almost daily basis that simply show that all of your acts about hygiene and cleanliness may simply be hyped up. You can wash hands after reading this article, sure!
10 Unhygienic Trends You Practice Daily
  1. Touching restroom doors after washing hands
    What is the point of washing hands when you end up touching the very doors all unwashed and the filthiest hands touch to open and close doors? And the door knob on the inside of any restroom is always in an atmosphere full of germs and air full of smells. Even though both sides are dirty, the door knob or handle used to come into a restroom or bathroom is cleaner than the one used to come out
  2. Touching restaurant menus before eating food
    The biggest and probably most amazing trend. People will wash hands in restrooms and then come to their tables to touch menus that have been touched by a thousand other customers and the waiter, who does not wash hands after handling any food
  3. Touching and eating from plates touched by many people including the waiter
    Even if you avoid touching any menu after washing hands and sit down at a clean table, the plates that your food comes in will be dirty because of being handled by several people, including the waiter. When was the last time you saw a waiter take a break to clean hands? That’s right: the waiter may have the unhealthiest hands in any restaurant
  4. Trying on clothes at clothing stores
    You will throw up at the idea of wearing someone else’s underwear, but at clothing stores you try on shirts, t-shirts, jackets, skirts, dresses and many other things that dozens of other customers have tried on during the past month
  5. Trying on shoes at shoe stores
    You don’t wear dirty socks or even newly washed socks that fall onto the bathroom floor, but you will gladly try on shoes that people have tried with and without socks
  6. Eating anything that is open and on display at any restaurant, convenient store or gas station
    I have seen so many people wash hands at restrooms at gas stations, only to then seeing them buy beef jerky that is sitting in the open, touched and sorted out by hundreds of customers every week. Eating anything that is open, accessible and on display at any place shows you can eat dirty things when convenient for you and when the surrounding environment promotes it
  7. Touching or kissing any animal anywhere on their body
    Yes, the dog you think is cute that everyone else throws up when looking at or the cat that you think is awesome that everyone else tells you is the devil, brings great germs and filthy things to you. Both animals lick their genital areas daily to clean them, yet you love washing hands, brushing your teeth and then kissing your dog or cat all over, even on their mouth
  8. Touching anything in the kitchen before, during or after eating in the kitchen
    The hope that a kitchen should be the cleanest place in the house, because of food, makes people assume that it is clean. People end up touching dirty knives, filthy hand towels, fridge handles that they and everyone else touches all the time, and many other things while eating food
  9. Taking baths
    Sitting in a big puddle of water that touches all the sides of the bathtub, while soaking yourself with all your dirt and filth particles floating around and touching you, and in the end simply getting up and wiping yourself clean with the towel may be the filthiest thing you do with the brainwashed idea that you are doing something that is the same or better than taking a shower
  10. Using a towel more than once for anything. Even to wipe a finger dry
    Yes, using a towel more than once, even if it is to wipe your hands dry, means your towel is the dirtiest thing in the house that you like touching regularly with the confused assumption that it marks the end of a cleaning cycle. It is the clothing equivalent of a bath, and even worse because you use a towel after showers and baths too
  11. Bonus Trend Just For You: Drinking Any Pepsi or Coca Cola Can
    We do it every day. I do it regularly too. Each and every Coca Cola, Pepsi, Sprite, Fanta or any soda can or bottle that you pop open and drink from contains the awesomest and most foreign germs you can think of, because of the amount of distance such bottles and cans travel in the open on trucks, airplanes and trains. Yet you conveniently touch your lips and tongue against such bottles and cans, because when it is time to enjoy carbonated drinks, hygiene and cleanliness can go itself.
