Good Handwashing Technique

  • Hands should always be wetted under running water before applying any soap or antiseptic detergent. (note : warm water kills germs better than cold water.
  • Make sure the “in-between” places like between the fingers and under the nails (where uninvited germs like to hang out) are washed. Do not forget the wrists!
  • Hands should be thoroughly rinsed to remove residual soap.
  • Hands should be dried carefully, paying particular attention to drying the area between the fingers.
