Tis’ the season to put that extra commitment on self-hygiene to fight off colds and viral infection. Especially with the recent Coronavirus outbreak, it has become a national reminder to wash our hands before anything to keep the bacteria away and yes, we’d like to do the honour to remind you as well — Please, wash your hands!
How do we wash the hands properly?
We touch just about anything every day and simply washing hands with water and soap won’t absolutely guarantee that germs will go away. With these easy steps however you’ll surely have a better hygiene and higher protection from any infections!
As guided by the World Health Organization (WHO), it only takes about 20 seconds to thoroughly wash our hands — that’s as long as singing the birthday song twice! Here’s how:
With enough hand soap in your hands, start interlacing your soapy/foaming fingers over the left hand and vice versa, and continue interlacing the palms onto each other.
Rub the left thumb in a rotational mode with your other hand clasping the left hand. Do the same with the other hand.
Then, rub the palms rotationally with clasped fingers of the other hand and vice versa.
Rinse and dry your mighty hands with a single-use towel.
This is important: Use that towel to turn off the water tap, you definitely don’t need immediate contact after a wash, and voila, we are done!
All of these are not possible without a good hand wash. With there, here are some of the best hand washes to stay hygienic and fresh throughout the day.
