Having clean hands shouldn't be a chore. To reduce the spread of germs, it is better to wash the hands or use a hand antiseptic before and after tending to a sick person. Some people include any cleaning agent under the definition "detergent." However, the term "detergent" actually refers to a soap less soap.

Hand hygiene, either with soap and water or with alcohol-based handrub, is one of the best ways to avoid getting sick and spreading infections to others. In the not too distant past, before medicine understood the connection between disease and germs, before they understood that surgery required the doctor to actually wash their hands, the death rate to disease and infections was understandably high.

Rinse your hands well under running water. Aside from washing after going to the bathroom, be sure to give your hands a good scrub when you get home, too. Dry your hands using a clean towel or air dry them. Good handwashing practice is your first line of defence against illnesses like coronavirus and food poisoning.

Always wash your hands before you use any cosmetic. The #washyourhands CDC cautions that sanitizers do not get rid of all types of germs, and their effectiveness goes down if your hands are really dirty or greasy. Your hands can be contaminated with millions of pathogens (a single gram of poop can contain one trillion germs!) and even one microorganism can cause illness.

You may think that liquid soap dispensers in the bathroom are harmless, but one small 2011 study published in the journal Applied and Environmental Microbiology found that, in an elementary school bathroom, soap dispensers refilled from a large liquid soap bottle can lead to a 26-fold increase in bacteria on your hands compared to soap dispensers that have been replaced with a sealed refill.
