How to Wash Your Hands?
- Poor handwashing practices are a major reason why colds spread within a school setting According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 22 million school days are lost each year due to the common cold.
- Best times to wash your hands are before eating or touching food, after using the bathroom, after blowing your nose or coughing, after touching pets or other animals, after playing outside, or after visiting a sick relative or friend.
- Steps to follow while washing your hands are as follows:
- Use warm water (not cold or hot) when you wash your hands.
- Use whatever soap you like. Some soaps come in cool shapes and colors or smell nice, but whatever kind that gets you scrubbing is the kind you should use. Antibacterial soaps are OK to use, but regular soap works fine.
- Work up some lather on both sides of your hands, your wrists, and between your fingers. Don't forget to wash around your nails. This is one place germs like to hide. Wash for about 10 to 15 seconds.
- Rinse and dry well with a clean towel.
- Use liquid soap in a pump-dispenser; bars of soap can become contaminated with bacteria.
