BENEFITS OF HAND WASHING

STEPS FOR PROPER HANDWASHING

Whenever you enter the house after being in public places such as transport, before eating, whenever you enter or leave the bathroom, after coughing and sneezing, when you touch objects such as toys, shoes, etc. you must wash your hands. We should ask children to do it when entering school and we should all do it when entering and leaving our jobs.

Wet your hands with water, hot if possible, and add soap.
Rub your hands thoroughly with soap for 15 to 20 seconds. With the children, you can sing a song or count, so those 20 seconds will go by faster. During these 20 seconds, don't forget to turn off the tap!
Rinse your hands well under running water.

Dry your hands with a disposable paper towel or air dryer. If possible, use the paper towel to turn off the water. It is important that you do not touch the tap again.
