Does it do anything to get into your pantry with all of your cleaning products in it, and then change your pants without washing your hands first?

What is the reason you need to do it?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I already did it. I had just wanted to be in more comfortable pants before washing my hands and getting a drink of water, eating, etc.

Hello,

It sounds to be of zero consequence from what you describe...

You certainly do not have to wash hands just to change your pants or other clothing...

Just being within the pantry would not change that...

If you had some caustic cleaner that you had been using with bare hands then that could change the situation... ( you should not use directly on skin some products without precautions>>such as protective gloves >> of course)

For example I would caution you to not use bleach directly with bare hands but a laundry detergent would be OK to use but wash after for a couple of common examples...

I hope that this is helpful. Best Regards,

Anthony Bray MD
