#4 If you keep a glass of wine in each hand, you can’t accidentally touch your face

Rubbing your fingers with Tabasco sauce will quickly achieve the same effect.

#5 I had a supervisor once who would occasionally discover he had a lit Camel in each hand. I suppose one would have to weigh the trade-off.

#6 Day 16: Sat on the front porch and counted all of the out-of-state license plates in the neighborhood. Zip. Come to think of it there are never were any out-of-state licenses before the quarantine.
Day 17: Counting the new bamboo shoots in the backyard today.
Day 18: Worried about running out of booze. Watching YouTube videos to see how to make mash and a still from what we have in the house--feeling a little like MacGyver.
Day 19: Reading old COBOL manuals scheduled.

#8 Re #4 - to be accurate, it will prevent you from doing it twice.

#11 Along with #4

What broke me of the habit years ago was dicing hot peppers - jalapenos specifically - without gloves.

Not only do you know it when you touch your face wrong, or even close to wrong, the oils stay on your hands until they are properly washed, especially under the fingernails.
