How to wash your hands…properly

According to the Canadian Pediatric Society here are the four steps to proper hand-washing.  I should also add  that you wash for about 15-20 seconds, about the same time as it takes to sing  the Happy Birthday song.

Four steps to proper hand washing

  • Wet your hands under running water.
  • Scrub your hands well with soap.
  • Rinse your hands under running water.
  • Dry your hands with a clean towel.

When water and soap are not available, use premoistened hand wipes or alcohol-based hand rinses. Keep hand rinses out of the reach of children because they may be harmful if swallowed.
