The Best Celebrity Handwashing Videos Right Now

Updated on March 15, 2023

Washing your hands is across the globe the most important step that we can all take to help stop the spread of coronavirus.

And we’re all doing it! But while lots of us are washing along to the tune of the Happy Birthday to make sure we’re washing our hands for 20 seconds (in order to be effective) – not every celebrity has sung along to the same tune!

With effective handwashing guidance and helping to encourage those around us, we are all working together to reduce risk of infection; protecting ourselves and those around us and helping to support our key healthcare workers. But, with the Safe Hands Challenge from the World Health Organisation (WHO) spreading across Twitter, Instagram, TikTok and more, our well-loved celebrities have even taken the next step to spread #safehands in order to help stop the spread of COVID-19!

We have found some of our favourite celebrity handwashing videos: what do you think of some of their song suggestions?
