My Mother always said "you have to eat a peck of dirt anyway, before you die", whenever someone dropped food on the ground, picked it up and ate it. She always said that.

But Mama did NOT say "you have to eat a peck of POOP before you die..."

Don't get lemon slices with your tea or water. Remember the test performed to see how dirty many waitress hands are? They found all kinds of poo stuff under the nails. She had not washed her hands all day and then held your lemon tightly while cutting and pushing onto the glass. Yikes!!!!

No lemon for me

These threads always give me a chuckle. I don't wear gloves when filling the black tank and I don't wear gloves when emptying it. And my hands come MUCH closer to the contents when filling it than emptying it. I do wash my hands after each, though.

And you better not eat anywhere but home if you are worried about proper hygiene and sanitation. Food preparers wipe their noses, their hair and Lord knows what else while preparing your food. Just because the sign in the bathroom says they must wash their hands, certainly doesn't mean they do.

Had you witnessed someone emptying their black tank THEN dipping an ice cream cone without washing their hands, then you could worry... but to worry because they got a cone BEFORE dumping isn't much cause for alarm IMO.

I don't use gloves. I have a wash station in my sewer/water hookup compartment. I am careful not to let my fresh water hose get dropped in a dump area at all.

Simple hygiene will keep you safe but being over-cautious is a waste of time.

I don't use gloves either, not when using the commode nor when emptying the tanks. I wash my hands with soap and water and that's sufficient in my book.

I guess I never understood this modern fascination/horror with GERMS. They are around us everywhere and the more you encounter, the better equipped you are to survive. Think of it as a natural vaccination process.

Pass the ice cream, please.

Some bacteria is good for the system. If anything, I'll wash before.

Mythbusters found that there was less bacteria on and around the toilet than there was elsewhere.

There was a recent thread about how long food keeps. As I said in that thread, I'd be dead many times over it I went by that 15 minute of fame study.











As a side: Maybe it's because my body has had a lot of preservatives(alcohol) over the years. More beer!

And... just last night, the news said that women that drink moderately are less prone to illnesses.

Hit it ladies, two drinks won't mess you up. Really!

How about the folks get dressed up in a Hazmat suit to empty their own poo. They drain, they rinse, they flush, they back flush, they disinfect. they pass hoses in the window, they wash down, they remove their protective gear and wash some more. It makes you wonder what they are eating.
I darn near have to check the code date on my tires by the time they are done.

Reminds me of a joke that was popular when I was in the Navy (Leathernecks I apologize in advance).

A sailor and a marine are in the bathroom using the urinals, when they finish the sailor goes to leave and the marine asks, don't they teach you Navy guys to wash your hands after going to the bathroom, the sailor replies no they just teach us not to p on our fingers.
