Keep germs away with hand washing
Hand washing is proven to be one of the best ways to prevent illness and the spread of disease. In fact, encouraging good hand washing practices has been shown to decrease the number of days children take off school due to illness.
Hand washing works by cleansing the skin of pathogens, including bacteria and viruses. In everyday life, it prevents infection and illness from spreading between family members and among a community.
Another option to keep your hands free from harmful germs is to use waterless, ‘fast-acting’ hand sanitisers. Alcohol-based sanitisers act quickly and effectively to kill most bacteria and germs on the skin.
