Practicing good hand-washing techniques will help keep germs away

With winter in full force, we’re spending a significant amount of time indoors. In order to reduce germs and lower our chances of getting sick, it’s important to practice good hand-washing techniques.

Washing your hands is the easiest way to reduce the risk of spreading germs that cause infections. Hands get more germs on them than other parts of your body.

Everyone can benefit from learning good hand-washing techniques. You should your wash hands after:

  • using the bathroom
  • blowing your nose
  • coughing
  • sneezing
  • before eating

If you can’t get to a sink, clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Your friends and family will thank you!
