What is the right way to wash your hands?
Follow the five steps below to wash your hands the right way every time.
*Wet your hands with clean, running water (warm or cold), turn off the tap, and apply soap.
*Lather your hands by rubbing them together with the soap. Be sure to lather the backs of your hands, between your fingers, and under your nails.
*Scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds. Need a timer? Hum the “Happy Birthday” song from beginning to end twice.
*Rinse your hands well under clean, running water.
*Dry your hands using a clean towel or air dry them.
