Why it matters and how Kokesh Plumbing can help:
Global Handwashing Day is celebrated every year on October 15th to raise awareness of the importance of handwashing with soap as a way to prevent disease. Handwashing is one of the most effective ways to protect yourself and your loved ones from getting sick. It’s also simple and inexpensive to do.
Why is handwashing so important?
Germs can spread easily from person to person through contact with contaminated surfaces. When you wash your hands with soap, you remove these germs and prevent them from spreading. Handwashing is especially important after using the bathroom, before eating, and after being around someone who is sick.
Here are some additional tips for handwashing:
- Wet your hands with clean, running water (warm or cold), turn off the faucet, and apply soap.
- Lather your hands by rubbing them together with soap. Lather the backs of your hands, between your fingers, and under your nails.
- Continue lathering for at least 20 seconds.
- Rinse your hands thoroughly under running water.
- Dry your hands with a clean towel or air dry them.
