- First wet the hands thoroughly with warm water
- Use enough soap to create a good lather and rub the hands vigorously for 20 seconds
- Wash both the palms and back of your hands to get rid of the dirt stuck in your nails
- Rinse your hands and dry them with a towel
Make sure that the kids wash their hands before their meals, after coming from outdoor, or playing with pets. In cars and playgrounds, when there is no access to running water, wet wipes and hand sanitizers are a good away of keeping the hands clean. However, you may need to monitor the younger kids who might end up putting their hands in their mouth or rubbing their eyes before the sanitizer evaporates.
