Especially with the recent outbreak of swine flu, it is an important part of discouraging the spread of germs, bacteria and viruses. There is a proper way to wash your hands in order to get rid of the most germs. First, wet your hands with clean, warm running water and apply hand soap. Rub hands together to make foam and scrub all surfaces, making sure to clean between fingers and under fingernails. Continue rubbing hands for 20 seconds, or about the time it takes to sing the ABCs. Rinse hands well under running water, and then dry hands.

One of the best things to use for hand washing is foaming hand soap. The foam it creates helps loosen dirt and germs while you scrub your hands, meaning they’ll wash away when you rinse. And hand soap doesn’t have to be boring. It can be scented with nearly any scent so that your hands smell great after washing.
