Hand wash is a routine task – and a very important one for our personal hygiene. That’s why we do it several times a day in critical moments such as before and after cooking and eating, for example.
That might be the problem. According to some health entities, most people don’t know how to wash their hands the right way. This is not just an individual problem, but a public health one.
If your handwashing technique is ineffective, not only will your organism be more easily attacked by germs, but you will also spread those same germs all over everything you touch: other people’s hands, door handles, handrails, objects, etc. And you have to remember that your hands touch all kinds of different surfaces throughout the day, collecting thousands of germs – some of them may put your health at risk.
