Washing your hands is not something most people are preoccupied with. But as COVID-19 spreads and back-up hygiene methods like hand sanitizers and wipes sell out, handwashing is becoming more important than ever. The Center for Disease Control has released their tips on the best way to prevent COVID-19. Their biggest tip is to wash your hands frequently. While this may seem obvious, most people do not wash their hands thoroughly enough or for enough time. An experiment showing the difference between proper and improper handwashing published by the Daily Mail shows just how staggering the difference between both is.
It is important that homes and workplaces are practicing proper hand hygiene, and that includes breaking improper handwashing habits. Where soap and water are not available, an effective hand sanitizer should be used. Not to worry, Citron Hygiene has you covered with our printable Proper Handwashing Guide that can be posted in all public restrooms.
