My Obsession

Please don’t hate me because I have a compulsive obsession. With cleanliness, that is.

Do I have a disorder if I want to have clean hands all the time? I think hand cleanliness is crucial, especially so for my case, since I take care of a toddler. Well, not just that…I ensure my hands are clean all the time, even at work.

Can you imagine when your hands are filthy dirty, and you rush to the sink to wash your hands? You use your dirty hands to turn on the tap, squirt some soap, wash and scrub your hands clean and then rinse off the dirt. And then what do you do?

You turn off the tap, right? And the tap is DIRTY from before when you used your dirty hands to turn it on! Eeewwwww…… yes, I think about it THAT way.

And that’s the main reason why my hubby and I are considering replacing our bathroom taps with one of the modern ones, where you need only lift the tap handle to turn it on. Our kitchen tap is one of these, and it is a breeze turning it on and off, because we just need to lift it with our elbows. Taps are aplenty nowadays, both in design and functionality, but since we certainly can’t afford the luxury of one of those cool electronic sensor taps, I would certainly be more than content with the lift-with-elbow ones. 🙂

    Uhm, I rinse the tap first before I turn it off – even with lever style ones. Does that count as clean? *grin*
