Wash Your Hands:Still the Best Way to Combat Germs!

Ah, Soap. It's there at almost every sink we see, in some form or another,and it still can't be beat when it comes to fighting germs.Whether it is solid or liquid,soap is effective because it rids your hands of germs that you can spread when you touch your nose,mouth,eyes or other people.

Soap does a superior cleaning job because it acts as an emulsifier,meaning it can successfully unite two unblendable  liquids.The oils in soap(which act like a magnet for dirt) don't logically mix with water but soap actually works to coax the dirt and oils into the water so they can be washed away.It is important to note that regular soap is just as effective as the antibacterial variety when you are killing germs.

With the threat of the normal cold weather flu,not to mention the dreaded H1N1 powerhouse illness,it is more important then ever that we protect ourselves as much as possible.When washing your hands ,wet them first,
and then apply soap.Wash for at least 20 seconds, making sure to rub the "webs" between fingers, the back of hands and your wrists.Dry hands thoroughly with a towel or air dryer.
If you are in a public bathroom, you can use the hand towel to turn off the faucet.

Isn't it nice to know that hand washing with simple soap is still at the top of list when it comes to protecting ourselves against germs? By making a habit of washing your hands,you can save your self many sick days and enjoy a much healthier lifestyle.
