How to Wash Your Hands the Right Way

It is very important for kids to learn early how to wash their hands.

Research reveals that only half of guys wash their hands with soap. The World Health Organization explains how to do it right:

1. Suds them up
Wet your hands under running water and then douse them with enough soap to completely cover their entire surface. Rub your hands together, palm to palm.

2. Watch your back
Move your right hand, palm down over the back of your left hand and rub with laced fingers. Now switch and repeat with your left hand atop your right.

3. Finger it out
Lace your fingers and rub up and down. Place the tops of your fingers against the opposite palms and rub to work the lather under your fingernails.

4. Give a thumbs-up
Grasp your left thumb with your right palm and rub, rotating as if your were turning a key in its ignition, repeat with your right thumb in your palm.

5. Take these tips
Tightly clasp your fingers together and circle your right finger-tips against your left palm, repeat with your left finger-tips against your right palm.

6. Dry right
Rinse with water and dry with a paper towel. Australia found paper to be more effective than hot air for eliminating bacteria.
