Washing Your Hands Correctly
Washing your hands is the easiest way to keep yourself healthy and avoid catching germs. Colds, the flu and gastrointestinal disorders can be spread via hand-to-hand contact. Also, preparing food with dirty hands can spread salmonella and E. coli. Let Doctor Private explain the proper way to wash your hands. You will need to remove all jewelry. Then, using an antiseptic soap (either medicated or antimicrobial), run your hands under warm water and work into a lather for 15 or 20 seconds. Some folks recommend singing Happy Birthday, which will let you know how long to lather for. You should then use a scrub brush to get under your fingernails. Then, dry your hands and use the towel to turn off the faucet and open the door. These can be the germiest places in a building. You should top off your hand washing with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
