    Why not just clean the stickiness up in the first place as it happens so that it isn’t an issue?

    Sounds like both of you need to wash your hands…

    Isn’t this the same thread and poll as the other thread?

    like what crayfish says, you BOTH should clean up the mess as a compromise AND both wash your hands…it’s just sanitary.

    And yeah, like caszos said, this seems like the same thing?

    I came from the original thread but I must say!

    I have extreme ANXIETY just thinking about that mess! OMG! There is NO WAY I could deal with that. I have a thing about my kitchen being VERY clean.

    The thing that Darling Husband does that bothers me is that when he handles potatoes he touches the cupboard only ard door knob to the garbage and the tap for the faucet and he lives white starchy marks on them. And it drives me crazy!!!!

    But you have given me some perspective and so maybe I won’t be so hard on him when dealing with potatoes LOL!

    Just thought I would chime in that if the whole house is sticky from “chicken juice” (that was raw), that’s a serious health risk… if he is cooking raw chicken and getting juice everywhere, he needs a serious talking to!

    @caszos: Yes, but the way the original poll was worded to start with was very confusing and so the voting wasn’t correct.

    @MissBoston: Totally agree with you!

    I think he should wash his hands before he touches anything else as to not make everything sticky! That’s how ants and other bugs make their way into the house! B/c they’re drawn to the “stickiness” that is everywhere. Not to mention, if it’s chicken juice or blood from beef, that it absolutely a health hazzard! Germ central is more like it!

    Bottom line: He needs to wash his hands before he handles anything else, and you should wash your hands if you feel anything sticky at all!!

    Ugh!  I hate sticky stuff!!  I *HAVE* to wash my hands if its the least bit sticky or oily from cooking or anything, even if I know that I’ll be getting my hands dirty again in a few minutes preparing something else.  I can’t even use a utensil if its fallen in a dish of food even after wiping it off if its even remotely sticky.

    Honestly, if I were in your situation, my husband would literally be banned from the kitchen. I’m dead serious. I am NOT a germaphobic, but I AM scared of raw meat germs since I don’t want to get very sick. I am VERY careful about not touching anything when handling raw beef/chicken and wipe counters, sink, etc. very carefully. I couldn’t live in a house in which the kitchen had raw chicken juices on the floor, counter, etc.!! Also, the idea of having anything sticky in the kitchen would skeeve me out. I would just clean it or have him clean it daily. Or kick him out of the kichen!

    If you touch chicken juice & then something else & then eat that something else later, you can get really sick. Food poisoning/ salmonella/ worse. I think if you make a mess, you clean it up because it could lead to a health issue. I’m not a germaphobe, but I got food poisoning once from raw meat juice & was so sick & I couldn’t call anyone cause I couldn’t talk & the front door was locked so I couldn’t unlock it if I had called 911 & I was home alone. Yea, it was THAT bad for at least 8 hours. So, I’m really careful with raw meat… you don’t want to learn this the hard way.

    How about get one of those pump hand-sanitizer things. No water needed & it gets away the stickiness & sanitizes. Win-win?

    I don’t even understand how someone spills all of that stuff. Is he properly wrapping foods up and putting them in containers?

    I’m in public health, and I’m going to go all public-health-zilla right now.

    This is screaming unsanitary–especially the chicken juice, which may contain bacteria and parasites. You could get sick. He could get sick. REALLY sick–i’m not kidding here. He either needs to learn to wipe things down and properly seal foods, or stay out of the kitchen. I think you need to be very firm with him.
