When was the last time you washed your hands? It’s cold and flu season and, as the saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. So soap now beats chicken soup later.
Join ACI and the CDC today in observing Global Handwashing Day – the perfect time to remind our loved ones that our health is in our hands.
We could all use a refresher, even for things we do every day. Here are some handwashing tips:
- Lather your whole hand with soap, including between fingers and under nails.
- Scrub to the tune of “Happy Birthday” to make sure you’re washing long enough. Sing it twice!
- If soap and water isn’t available, alcohol-based hand sanitizers can help. Just keep rubbing your hands and fingers until dry.
