Hand washing has always been the best way to keep from getting sick. But with the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreaks, hand washing matters more than ever.
When you wash your hands, you protect yourself from germs. You also protect people in your family. With the coronavirus, when you stop the spread of germs at home, you protect people in the community too.
Here's how to scrub those germs away:
Make a habit of regular hand washing. It's most important:
What if you don't have soap and running water? Waterless Hand Soap is best since it is actual soap and water. Alcohol based sanitizers or scrubs are less good, since alcohol is a known skin irritant. In medical environments, it is advised that gloves be worn when handling rubbing alcohol. Waterless Hand Soaps is available now. You can buy travel sizes to keep in your book bag, car, locker, purse, or sports bag.
The CDC advises soap over sanitizers.
Good hand washing is the first line of defense against the spread of illnesses, including coronavirus (COVID-19). And it helps protect you against everything from the common cold to more serious infections, such as meningitis, bronchiolitis, the flu, hepatitis A, and many types of diarrhea.
Germs spread in lots of ways. For example:
When you come into contact with germs, you can become infected just by touching your eyes, nose, or mouth.
Seize the power of hand washing! It's one of the best things you can do to help yourself and others.

soap and money
How much soap money does a shower cost you?
Let's say you spend $3.00 on a bar of soap and it lasts for 7 days of showers. That's $.43 per shower.
For your next bar of soap, you spend $8.50. That seems like a lot of money, except it lasts for 8 weeks or 56 showers. That's $.15 cents per shower. F.Y.I.: One bar lasts me and Andy 6 weeks of daily showers - 84 showers.
Good soap is cost effective. More
