First off. I'm a crazy person. So you're wherever that I go to wash my hands. And here's some of the things that concern me. One eye open up the sink right my hands dirty when I opened up the sink so I try to do it with my elbow. But I've been opening doors and pushing buttons with elbow so I feel like I'm dirty it so then I washed my ange rate and then I have to close the which is now probably infected. Because I touched it before the that my dirty handwrite dirty Elmo and then if I want to get something driver hands. I've touched that with my dirty hands so if I go to touch paper towels regular towels to dry my hands with infected with the germs that I just watched off my hand previous so so it depends on whether you're in your own home or you're in a public washroom. Public washrooms are the worst they are danger zones for these viruses bacteria etc so you can go ahead and turn the water on with your bare hand. Wash your hands.

You now prevented the only two ways in which you can get infected holding your breath around. People is helpful. Well he's interesting. My wife and I were talking about that when we were out running last night. And we said you know.
