Cleanliness and convenience


The gym in my building provides free antibacterial wipes for cleaning off the equipment before and after you use it. I never really thought much about this, until all the dispensers ran out recently. Clearly, I’m not the only person using them, which is a nice surprise. When it’s easy and convenient to clean off the equipment, more people do so. This makes me wonder: if public restrooms provided hand sanitizer right by the door, would some of the lazy people who never wash their hands actually use it?
