Woman admits she doesn't always wash her hands after using loo - but sees no problem

A woman has sparked a fierce debate online after admitting she doesn't always wash her hands after going to the loo.

The controversial confession, one that's got thousands of people talking, was shared online by popular TikTok creator @sophiashattersonxoxo.

Known for her candid videos, one of Sophia's latest posts is incredibly honest - as she admitted she follows a different hygiene practice than some.

In the clip, which has since been viewed more than 500,000 times, Sophia explained: "I'm going to expose myself because I feel like it's really weird that I do this and I don't know if other people do this.

"But I don't always wash my hands after I pee, especially if I'm in my own house, right?

"I know how to pee in a way that doesn't make a mess on myself.

"I do this thing where if I have guests over and I go to pee, I'll turn my sink on and pretend to wash my hands, and kill some time so that they think I have washed my hands but I haven't.

"So I actually go through the process of wasting both water and time just to kind of keep up with a lie that actually doesn't matter.

"Anyway, anyone else do that?"

In response, several people were quick to share their own take on the matter - and it turns out she's not the only one. But not everyone was so impressed by Sophia's method.

One fan said: "I found my people." Meanwhile, a second person wrote: "IVE NEVER RELATED TO SOMETHING MORE IN MY LIFE."

"Haha don't most of us secretly do this?" another questioned. However, a different commenter replied: "But if you were already doing that, like why not just wash your hands?"

Another quizzed: "But you touch the toilet flusher and sink handles after taking a sh** so cross contamination??"
