Hand Washing A Preventive

Its the time of year where cold and flu symptoms will become more and more apparent. The best thing you can do to make sure not to spread or catch such germs is to wash your hands. The following picture illustrates the best way to wash your hands. Remember you should wash your hands the length of time it takes to sing happy birthday song.

  • Use warm water (not cold or hot) when you wash your hands.
  • Use whatever soap you like. ...
  • Work up some lather on both sides of your hands, your wrists, and between your fingers. ...
  • Rinse and dry well with a clean towel.
    Hand washing is one of  the best ways to avoid getting sick and spreading illness to others. Keeping your hands clean can help reduce the number of people who get sick with diarrhea by 31% and helps to reduce respiratory illnesses, like colds, in the general population by 21%. This all leads to more time to spend with more family as you will spend less time at the doctors office and less school or work missed.
