The importance of washing your hands!


Start washing your hands! That is one phrase that most mothers say often. It can be annoying hearing it over and over again, but it can seriously affect your health in both the long and short run if you don’t do it.

Washing your hands is easy. It is one of the most effective ways to prevent the spread of disease.

Keeping your hands clean will stop you from falling into unexpected and potentially life-threatening situations, anywhere and everywhere. The best thing, washing your hands like a professional is not a complicated task at all!

Follow the 5 simple steps below to wash your hands correctly every time.

  • Wet your hands with clean, running water, turn off the tap (save some water in the process!), and add soap.
  • Foam up your hands by rubbing them together with the soap. Make sure to scrub the backs of your hands, between your fingers, under your nails…
  • Rub your hands for at least 20 seconds.
  • Rinse your hands well under clean running water. Hot or cold.
  • Dry your hands using a clean towel or air dry them.

What if you don’t have soap or water?

Alcohol-based hand sanitizers have been very effective in eliminating germs and serving as a top notch substitute. They have had amazing success in hospitals. For people that don’t have much time on their backs, it is a perfect time-saving alternative!
