Importance of Keeping Your Hands Clean

We seem to be right in the middle of flu season. There's no better time to teach your children the importance of a task as simple as hand washing.

No matter what the season, temperature or weather, the importance of keeping your hands clean, and germ-free, never goes out of fashion. Keeping your hands clean is an important part of personal hygiene, which helps us stay healthy and fighting fit. The spread of infectious diseases is checked when everyone keeps their hands clean, limiting the spread of germs on contact.

Seasonal colds and flu seem inevitable, but it can be easily prevented with better hygiene practices. While it doesn’t seem like a very significant measure, a simple hand wash routine can help keep communicable diseases at bay.

Always remember to wash your hands before:

  • Eating
  • Cooking
  • Touching any food article, especially ones that could be consumed raw.
  • Touching a person who is already ill.
  • Holding babies and young children or anyone who may have weaker immunity.

Remember to wash hands after:

  • Visiting crowded spaces
  • Being in contact with sick/infected individuals
  • Touching anything in public spaces
  • Sneezing/ coughing
  • Petting animals
  • Touching any type of raw meat/ fish
  • Eating
  • Using the washroom

It is important to wash up well after roaming around in crowded places, coming into contact with other infected individuals, or ever so often just for good measure.

Contrary to popular belief that some hand wash soaps work in just ten seconds, it is advisable to wash your hands well for at least the duration of the “happy birthday” song.

A good hand wash also helps. These should be able to disinfect your hands well and leave them feeling good too. Here are a few of the best hand wash liquids you could consider using:
