86

— Percent of men who wash their hands in rest rooms when reminded by signs.

Messages reading “4 out of 5 Males Wash Their Hands” prompted more men to wash their hands, according to a recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that showed only 77% do so without the visual prompt. The reminder also led to more thorough and longer washing. [via Human Communication Research]
