What is the right way to wash your hands?

Screen_Shot_2011-12-07_at_10.26.55_AM• Wet your hands with clean, running water (warm or cold) and apply soap.

• Rub your hands together to make a lather and scrub them well; be sure to scrub the backs of your hands, between your fingers, and under your nails.

• Continue rubbing your hands for at least 20 seconds. Need a timer? Hum the “Happy Birthday” song from beginning to end twice.

• Rinse your hands well under running water.

• Dry your hands using a clean towel or air dry them.

Ask children to:

• Cover their nose and mouth with a tissue when they cough or sneeze—have them throw the tissue away after they use it. • Wash their hands often with soap and water, especially after they cough or sneeze. If water is not near, use an alcohol-based hand rub. • Avoid touching their eyes, nose, or mouth. Germs spread this way.
