Washing hands is the simplest way of protecting ourselves from several infections;"Worldwide, surveys have shown that handwashing alone reduces the instance of diarrhoea by as much as 43 percent.IT also prevents the spread of other communicable diseases. Proper hand washing is not just a quick cold rinse of the hands. It requires 20 seconds of your time, warm water, soap (liquid is best) and some devoted scrubbing. This means washing around tips of fingers, fingernails, and the web, as well as the front and back of your hands. The dirtier the hands, the longer the wash time. Use the towel to turn off the faucet handle. This reduces the risk of picking up bacteria from the handle.
