For those with OCD as it relates to touching door knobs and the like (Moishe is guilty)- salvation at last

A few years ago, after using a filthy gas-station bathroom strewn with soggy toilet paper, Matthew Fulkerson dried his hands under a wall-mounted blower. Then he realized he was trapped: How to leave without touching the door handle? "Everything is focused on clean hands as you exit," he says. "But then someone else doesn't wash their hands and you have to touch the same door handle."
