How to Effectively Wash Your Hands

A friend shared this video of a segment that aired on Anderson Cooper’s show recently. Since washing hands is an important part of staying healthy and keeping germs at bay, I thought it would be an interesting watch! Plus, I’d love to know, do you wash your hands for a full 40 seconds?!

    I’d say it depends on what I have done and what I am going to do next. If it’s flu season I do wash my hands pretty thoroughly when I’ve been out and about and I also wash them before going to the bathroom since (because of a previous paralysis condition) I have to empty my bladder using a catheter which requires good hygiene. Also at hospitals it’s good to wash and then sterilize your hands I think. But apart from that I think people are a bit too scared of germs these days – disinfecting pretty much everything which may actually cause germs to get more dangerous so that’s something I’m strongly against. :)
