  6. Hand Sanitizer

    ocd101:

    I used to use it like every time I touched something other than my computer.. but one time, I went to the eye doctor and he told me that if you use it three times without washing with soap and water, the third time it’ll actually attract germs. So, I only use it once after using soap. So that just makes me use soap WAY more. If I put hand sanitizer on my hands to many times my hands start to feel unclean again. That’s why I love soap :)
