Stop Colds and Flu

Washing your Hands

Most of us know that keeping hands clean through improved hygiene is one pf the best ways to avoid getting sick and spreading germs to others. But do you know the proper way to wash?

Recommendations from the CDC (Center for Disease Control) are as follows:

      1) Wet your hands with clean, running water, turn off the tap and apply soap.

2) Lather hands by rubbing them together with the soap. Be sure to lather the backs of your hands, between the fingers, and under your nails.

3) Scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds. Need a timer? Hum the “Happy Birthday” song from beginning to end twice.

4) Rinse your hands well under clean, running water.

5) Dry your hands using a clean towel or air dry them.

6) Do this often throughout the day.

You can cut back on those steps if you are using AntisepationTM Cleansing Gel (OTC Drug). Antisepation kills 99.996% of harmful germs, including E.coli, Pseudomonas, and Staph, on contact. No water? Try AntisepationTM Foaming Hand Sanitizer (OTC Drug). It is alcohol free, does not require washing or rinsing, and eliminates bacterial contamination on contact.
