Hand washing, correctly done, can easily prevent the spread of germs. The better you wash, the more likely you are to remove even those tiny particles that, if allowed to get into your mouth, could make you seriously ill. Take action: Wet your hands, ideally with very warm water; add soap, then rub your hands together to make a soapy lather; vigorously scrub the front and back of your hands and between your fingers, for no less than 10 seconds; rinse the lather off your hands, letting the water run into the sink, not down your arms; dry your hands thoroughly with a clean towel. 0 More: Daily Dose: Are you drinking your sugar intake?Health-in-Motion advertisement Other news News Paramedic on red zones: 'They started stoning us and the ambulance' Medical Too little of this vitamin could harm young hearts Diet and nutrition Alarming increase in childhood obesity over 4 decades Medical Oral health basics: what you need to know Sex Why cardiac arrest during sex is deadlier than any other activity News A deadly story – the origins of poisoning From our sponsors R2000 Skin Renewal online store voucher up for grabs!
