Today is the Global Handwashing Day, Global Handwashing Day is to promoted initially by PPPHW, rallying the world countries since 2008, October 15 of each year carry out activities of handwashing with soap.

Earlier, a survey showed that only 7% of the city residents to maintain good hand-washing habits. But in real life, we do not know a lot of contact with bacteria situational: every mealtime, toileting, contact should wash their hands coins and other contexts; flow of water to wash their hands; wash your hands when you use cleaning products such as soap, soap or hand sanitizer; The length of time when washing your hands should less than 20 seconds and so on.

On this Global Handwashing Day, are you able to wash your hands properly? Here are the seven steps to teach you clean hands away from bacteria fully.

1. Get your hands wet.

Turn the tap on and evenly rinse your hands in warm water. Contrary to popular belief, hot water does not remove bacteria more effectively than warm water, and may even increase the "irritant capacity" of some soaps.

2. Use soap.

Any type of soap will work, but if it helps you wash your hands more consistently to have soap that is a fun shape or color, or a pleasant fragrance, go for it.

3. Work up a lather.

Scrub on both sides of your hands, in between your fingers, and your wrists. Remember to wash around and under your fingernails.

4. Wash your hands for about 15-20 seconds.

Be sure and rub your hands vigorously, and don't rinse off the soap right away. Give it time to do its job and give yourself time to get soap everywhere it should be.

5. Rinse your hands thoroughly.

Place them under running water with your hands pointed downward but not touching the sink. This removes both the soap and the bacteria that was on your hands.

6. Use a towel to turn off the faucet, particularly in a public bathroom.

If the faucet turns itself off on a spring or a photocell, let it. If not, use a paper towel, your elbow, or your forearm.

7. Dry your hands with a clean towel.

Although they are not as good for the environment, paper towels are more sanitary for drying your hands than cloth towels. If you use cloth towels at home, launder them regularly. If you are in a public restroom, you can also use the hot air dryers if they are available.
