The Importance of Hand Washing

Hand washing is a critical practice for maintaining good personal hygiene and preventing the spread of infectious diseases. Proper hand washing is especially important for eliminating potentially life-threatening germs such as salmonella, shigellosis, hepatitis, and E. coli. Using a hand wash that is bactericidal, virucidal, and fungicidal ensures the effective removal of harmful microorganisms from your hands, reducing the risk of infections and protecting both yourself and others from getting sick.
