Woman who doesn’t wash her hands after she goes to the toilet sparks huge debate
| Last updated
A woman has caused quite the stir online after boldly confessing that she doesn't wash her hands after going to the toilet.
TikToker Valera Djordjevic admitted that sometimes she 'just doesn't feel like' scrubbing up after a bathroom trip - so let's hope her job doesn't involve handling food!
Bizarrely, the 21-year-old still runs the tap after answering nature's call to keep up the ruse that she is lathering on soap like the rest of us.
If you pressed an ear to the bathroom door, it sure would sound like she is having a thorough clean of her hands.
But if you busted it down, you would find Valera simply splashing the running water around - without a bar of soap in sight.
The content creator explained: "Sometimes I just don't feel like washing my hands so I turn the sink on and make splashing noises so nobody judges me."
Valera can be seen looking around impatiently while unenthusiastically placing only her index finger under the tap.
She then reenacts the disgusted facial expression that she says 'most people' who find out about her hand washing hating have.
But she appears unfazed by people's opinions of her bathroom etiquette - or lack thereof - while miming along to Doja Cat's Paint The Town Red.
Valera seemingly defended her choice not to wash her hands with the lyrics: "B***h, I said what I said."
She went on to clear up any speculation in the caption, saying: "Only when I go number one, I always wash my hands after [a] number two."
The controversial clip, which gained a whopping 3 million views, sparked a fiery debate in the comment section.
Some were supportive of Valera's hand washing boycott, while others described it as 'disgusting' and 'gross'.
One said: "As a germaphobe, I'm terrified," as another wrote: "I can't leave the bathroom without washing my hands. Even if I just went in there to look in the mirror or something."
A third added: "It has nothing to do with number one or two, you have touched the toilet!"
But others confessed they followed a similar toilet routine, much to the surprise of social media users.
One revealed: "I always wash my hands in public but at home, this is the way."
And a second commented: "It's how you get a better immune system! Just saying."
While another chimed in: "I rarely wash my hands. I hate the feeling of wet hands."
Valera told users that her hands become 'dry and tight' when she washes them, resulting in her avoiding the process altogether.
She told commenters: "Sometimes I just don’t want my whole hand wet then like dry and tight after drying it, or I have lotion on.
"My hands get all dry and tight every time I wash them so I don’t feel like applying lotion after every time I go pee.
"Don't worry, I'm a clean person lol just sometimes the thought of getting my hand wet is not it so I just don't."
A 2020 LADbible poll of more than 20,000 people found that a third didn't always wash their hands after a visit to the loo.
Good hand hygiene is key to fighting the spread of germs, a topic which became especially prominent when the pandemic began.
