AND FINALLY…LET’S TALK ABOUT WASHING OUR HANDS

80% of communicable diseases are transferred by touch

The most critical times for hand washing are before preparing food and after going to the bathroom.

The recommended washing time is 15 seconds. The ideal washing time is 30 seconds.

Most bacteria on our hands is on the fingertips and under the nails

Damp hands are 1,000x more likely to spread bacteria than dry hands
Only 20% of people dry their hands after washing
Re-usable cloth towels harbor millions of bacteria. Disposable paper towels are the most sanitary means of drying hands.
