Also, 37% claimed that these media influenced them when they were young.
Though 93% of respondents said hygiene is most often learned at home, other places that also convey hygiene messages are classrooms (70%), physicians (54%), self (50%), literature (42%) and friends (35%). More info: www.cleaning101.com.
