    I agree, set him up for success.  Make sure there are plenty of clorox wipes (super easy to get sticky stuff up), paper towels, soap etc.  Make sure there are plenty of easy to fine tupperware and zip lock backs to store sticky foods in properly.

    Eeek I would go bananas and be completely grossed out as well. i def agree that he needs to wash his hands after handling stuff so they are not sticky. First thing that popped into my head was germs. I thought of touching raw chicken then veggies them the fridge handles (ahhhhh my head was spinning lol) 

    I think setting the sticky hand bandit up for success is a fantastic idea. Make is easy and convenient for them to rid themselves of stickiness.

    I’m really confused why the poll is 50/50 on this. My only guess is that people are misinterpreting the poll options. Of course the person who’s making the kitchen sticky should start washing his or her hands in order to stop making everything sticky. I’ve never lived anywhere where that was a problem, and I’ve shared homes with lots of roommates and shared dorm kitchens with dozens of hallmates. As others have said, it’s unsanitary and is going to get you some critter visitors eventually, whether it be ants or roaches or something else.

    @IvyClimb:  Haha!  I’m confused as well.  I just came back to see how people are voting, and the votes don’t line up with the posts!  Maybe the sticky-handed culprit is trying to make him/herself look better?

    Has he never been to another clean household????  That is no way to live!  What can he possibly do where he gets everything so sticky without washing his hands?  If he’s being such a baby can you get him to stop whatever it is?  What about baby wipes or hand wipes if he doesn’t like soap & water?

    @hope1275: I’d say do another poll. Because based on how you changed the question… I answered wrong.

    @KatNYC2011: The person with the sticky hands should wash them.  Their would be no problem if they just washed their hands.  I hate  when my hands get sticky.

    @Vegan: I agree. that is my opinion too. I just voted before she changed the poll and answers so my vote fell into the wrong category.

    Everybody should wash their hands.  Why wouldnt someone that works with food wash their hands after they are done working with the food?  Also, depending on the stickiness germs will thrive on everything in your kitchen then those germs will stick right to you.  I hope you can clean that stickness up.  I had someone stay at my house that cooked with a lot of grease now my whole kitchen is greasy and it wont come off.  Anyone know how to get grease off of walls, stoves, windows, cabinets, floors?

    So if he’s cutting chicken and has to go into the refrigerator to get an ingredient he doesn’t wash his hands before opening the fridge, grabbing whatever he needs, using it and putting it back. Yuck. πŸ™

    Oh man, that is gross and dangerous.  I hope you can convince him to be cleaner in the kitchen for both your health.

    If he’s not washing his hands/the counter/the cutting board and he’s handling RAW CHICKEN, then he needs to either STOP COOKING, or start WASHING HIS HANDS. It’s not just “the sticky” — it’s a health hazard, like other people are saying. I mean, I’m not a germaphobe or anything (I eat raw cookie dough, and I like my steak rare, etc. etc.), but he obviously doesn’t understand that cross-contamination from raw chicken is bad, or that “sticky” is the perfect medium for growing mould, bacteria, and pests like ants/fruit flies.
