Step 9: Dispose of the Paper Towel and Leave Clean!

Throw the paper towel away as soon as possible so that the germs are not spread to you.  This may seem like an intense process for hand washing, but it is quite simple when you get in the habit.  All parts of the process are intuitive but many times we are in a rush.  If you dedicate yourself to following the steps over a few weeks then it will be less cumbersome.  Good luck and we hope you can OUTFOX infection to avoid illness and disease!

Cool. You should wash your hands properly
Washing hands properly is very important.
This is very good before eating and such.<br>else...well...what happens when you leave the wash room? do you use another tissue to open another door? or do you wear gloves? That would make us another Mr Monk ( the TV program) :-)
You make an excellent point! We don't support an OCD approach to hygiene. For, there will be some things that we do that will allow germs in.... We just need to find out which habits will protect us the best without being over-the-top.
You're supposed to take rings off.<br> <br> L
U are so right that rings are great big collectors of germy material. Actually if you leave ur rings on they will be clean too IF U DO IT RIGHT (key words!). U don't want to have clean hands and put those germy rings back on.<br><br>So push ur rings up on ur fingers and wash the area under the rings well. Then turn ur attention too the rings. Turn them around on your fingers being sure to get soap all over them. <br><br>Of course u want to be VERY CAREFUL so ur rings don't slip off ur fingers and go down the drain with the germs (Which is what u are doing - the antimicrobal agents in OTC hand soap really aren't necessary. U wash MOST of the germs away and down the drain. Of course health care professionals need hospital grade antimicrobals that leave a residue on the hands keeping the number of germs there low.)
Use &quot;you&quot; &amp; &quot;your&quot; if you want people to think that your older than ~11.<br> <br> L
Thank YOU for YOUR kind comments!
: )
Great addition! We will add that in. Thanks!
One last tip and then I'll go! WET ur hands first. This is supposed to decrease the surface tension on the hands letting u lather the soap up easier.<br><br>This is a great lesson and something that really, really needs to be taught!
Great information shared about wetting your hands! Thanks
I have to vote for this. I was an Infection Control Cordinator before I had to take a medical retirement. So I'd be out of the Bug Lady Club if I neglected to vote for this!<br><br>If you are a teacher looking for lesson plans, coloring sheets, songs, books, etc. I can give you a great low cost resource. I'm not sure if we are supposed to give out company info here or not.
Glad to see you are still in the club :)
That hand face scares me...
Not as much as germs should ;)
Nice work. Also in a recent lab experiment at uni we learned the length of time you have the soap on is more important than how much you rub your hands together.
I appreciate the information and hope it can help my readers! Thanks! OUTFOX
