How To Wash Your Hands Properly

  1. Open the tap and wet your hands under the running water. Make sure the water is clean. If it’s discoloured, then wait a few seconds, let the tap run until the water becomes clear. Temperature doesn’t matter.
  2. Apply soap and lather your hands by rubbing them together. You can pick any kind of soap you like, whether it’s foam, liquid, or bar. It doesn’t have to be an antibiotic, because all soaps work well.
  3. Make sure to spread the soap in between your fingers and under your nails. Keep rubbing your hands for 20 seconds. Hum your favorite tune or sing “happy birthday” to yourself twice.
  4. Rinse your hands under clean running water.
  5. Dry your hands with a clean towel. If you’re in a public washroom, don’t touch the faucet right after washing your hands. Use a paper towel to turn it off and to turn the doorknob for added safety.
