Clean Hands: A Win For Everyone

Washing your hands properly is one of the best things you can do to help prevent and control the spread of many illnesses – and good hand hygiene is a key contributor to helping us all stay healthy.  As a matter of fact, the CDC thinks handwashing is so important that they refer to it as a “do-it-yourself vaccine”!

Regular handwashing can be a quick and simple activity which can help us all to remove germs from our hands, and therefore prevent the spread of these germs to others (including back to ourselves) which could potentially result in illness.  As the CDC states, “Handwashing is a win for everyone – except the germs”!

Hand Hygiene Is As Easy As 1-2-3

  1. Wash hands with soap and clean water
  2. Dry hands with clean paper hand towels
  3. Apply hand sanitizer

Keeping hands clean is one of the most important steps we can take to avoid getting sick and spreading germs to others. It is best to wash your hands with soap and clean running water for 20 seconds.

Dry hands thoroughly, since wet hands can pick up and transfer more contamination than dry hands. Avoid contact with contaminated surfaces such as sink, faucet handles, towel dispenser cranks or levers that can result in cross-contamination.

Alcohol-based instant hand sanitizer should be viewed as an addition to hand washing and drying. Hands must be clean and free of grease and grime for instant hand sanitizer to work properly. Instant hand sanitizer can be used if there is no visible soil to reduce the risk of cross-contamination
