The Right Way to Wash Your Hands

The Right Way to Wash Your Hands

Hand washing is the best way to protect yourself from the Coronavirus, but are you sure you’re doing it properly? The World Health Organization (WHO) has released hand-washing guidelines that will ensure you get all the germs — even those hiding between your fingers.

These steps may seem a little weird the first few times you do them, but, after a while, they’ll become second nature, and you won’t have to think about it at all. In addition to regularly washing the entire surface of both your hands with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds, you should take care to dry your hands thoroughly with a disposable paper towel. Use the towel to turn off the water. This will keep you from picking up germs immediately after washing.

If you can’t wash your hands, you can use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol content. The steps for proper sanitation are the same as they are for hand washing.
