I've washed my hands quite often. In fact, so often that the notes I put on my pinky to help me pass an 8th grade exam are starting to show.

Seriously, if you wear gloves to receive packages, because you don't want to touch the packaging, then you have to toss the gloves each time you do this.  We were grocery shopping yesterday. Wiped the handle of the cart before taking it inside. My wife prefers that she push the cart.  I tried to keep my hands in my pockets, except when selecting a food item for the cart, and then, when we got home, we washed our hands before putting stuff away.

As to washing food, I suppose nearly everyone washes an apple before eating it. And, you eat the skin of the apple.  Do you wash an orange or a banana (where you don't eat the skin)?  You should.  Who know who touched those fruits?  I only have known one person who washes a banana before peeling it, and that is my father-in-law, who is 97.  Clearly his longevity is directly due to his fruity fastidiousness.
