6. After using washroom facilities,
7. When your hands are dirty,

Well, yeah it happens to the best of us. Children do not remember to wash their hands and thats a fact. I try to encourage my children to wash their hands but I am not around them most of the time and think they don't end up doing it.

Almost Never, unless there is no water at the public restroom. Guess I might have to start follow the ladies and walk with hand sanitizers and wipes.
