Suds up to stop germs

October 15 is Global Handwashing Day, a day designated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to promote handwashing and raise awareness that proper handwashing techniques can stop the spread of germs and sickness.

Proper handwashing involves soap and a couple of simple steps: Wet, lather with soap, scrub, rinse and dry. There are also key times when hand washing is especially important:

  • Before, during and after food preparation.
  • Before eating.
  • Before and after caring for a sick person.
  • Before and after treating a cut or wound.
  • After using the toilet or changing diapers.
  • After blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.
