No one likes getting sick but there are some things you can do to help keep yourself germ-free and avoid spreading germs to other people.
The number one thing is to wash your hands with water and soap. If you can’t wash your hands, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer but make sure it has at least 60% alcohol in it—that’s the most effective % to kill germs.
Did you know that there is a proper way to wash your hands? Follow these 5 steps:
- Wet your hands with water
- Lather with soap
- Scrub for at least 20 seconds (that’s the happy birthday song TWICE)
Happy hand washing!
