He said they went to the hand sanitizer method and thier students were getting sick left and right, they went back to hand washing, soon thereafter, no problemo.
Interesting. I've done trips both ways – "wishy washy" and hand sanitizer – and have had no problems whatsoever.

I all boils down to personal preference. Some prefer to wash the dirt off, some prefer just to kill it and leave it on their hands the whole trip. And, my units are made to fit inside a 50 cal. ammo can, so portability on most raft trips is not a problem.

I built one with the squeeze bulb for a powerboat fuel system (unused) and some tubing. The copper tubing spout clips onto a bucket. Always put it right in the path between groover and kitchen, so you'll stumble if you don't stop.

Cute name? How about Wash or You F-ing Die!

I also keep alcohol hand sanitizer at the toilet, and use that immediately post-dump, then wash my hands as well. A fingernail brush at the wash station is not a bad idea either, especially for the kitchen crew. And some lotion for those in need of instant moisturizing.

Maybe that's overkill, but having a big group with belly snakes is worse.

Some folks is naturally clean. Most ain't.
