Asurvey, carried out on behalf of SCA Tissue Europe, revealed that Britain was reportedly among Europe's frontrunners when it came to hand hygiene habits. 89% of British people claim they always wash their hands after using the loo and 10% say they usually perform this routine task. Rolf Andersson, senior scientist at SCA, says: "Good hand hygiene is crucial if you intend to stay healthy.

Bacteria can collect in the toilet flush mechanism; the taps; the light switch and door handle and if you have bacteria on your hands this can easily be transferred to the mouth." The study also showed that 35% of British people often think the workplace washroom appears dirty.
