How to maintain Hand Hygiene?

Maintaining proper hand hygiene is important for reducing the spread of germs and illness, but it doesn't have to be a chore. People keep their families healthy and clean by adopting good hand-washing habits and using soaps that are enjoyable and pleasant. To reduce the spread of illness through hand contact, people should wash their hands after using the restroom, before and after handling food, and after sneezing or coughing. 

To properly wash your hands, wet them with warm water. Many people put soap in their hands before running any water on them, but healthcare professionals advise wetting the hands first. Put a dime-sized amount of soap into the palm of one hand, then rub your hands together to form a lather. Lather your hands for 30 seconds, focusing on easy-to-miss areas such as the back of your thumbs, wrists, and pinky fingers. Rinse off the soap with warm water and dry hands with a hot air dryer or clean towel. 

Using all natural hand soap can make families more comfortable with frequent hand washing. All natural hand soap can still be tough on bacteria and germs. In fact, the best bacteria fighting hand soap should leave your hands feeling soft and clean, never irritated. Better Home Clean is an all natural brand that makes bacteria fighting hand soap without the use of harsh agents. Soaps that feel and smell great pull your family to the sink before dinner and after using the restroom so that they stay happy and healthy! 

No matter how great your hygiene habits are or how appealing your soap can be, everyone gets into situations in which hand washing is impossible. For these situations, it is useful to carry a travel-sized container of hand sanitizer. Hand sanitizer kills germs and bacteria with alcohol, which can irritate the hands and cause dry skin. For this reason, it is best to wash your hands with natural soap and warm water when possible. Once it becomes a habit, it won't feel right to eat before you've washed your hands. Hopefully, you will notice you and your family catch fewer colds per year as well!
