Hand Hygiene really matters.

There are DOs and DON’Ts to proper hand hygiene that are very important now. To all the germophobes, you are ahead on this. 

DO - Wash your hands after touching or cleaning after your pet. You betcha.

DO - Wash your hands before, during, and after making food. Again before you eat.  Plus a few more times.

DO - Of course wash your hands with soap for min 20 seconds. Cheating is no longer allowed.

DO - Keep your hand and dish towels separate and wash them daily. Better yet, use paper towel if you can find some. Yes, um yes.

DO - Disinfect things you touch like knobs, faucets, light switches, handles, TV remotes, all surfaces in your home, your phone. Often. Hmmm.

DON’T - Touch the soap, sink knobs or faucet until you rinse your hands with water. Of course.

DON’T - Touch anything after washing your hands or they are considered dirty again. Oh.

DON’T - Touch your face, ever. Very important.

DON’T - Think gloves are the answer. They can contaminate things you touch if not new or just washed. Don’t forget.

DON’T - Go anywhere without hand sanitizer. Got it.

Now you can practice good hand hygiene.

It’s helpful to know what is in your hand sanitizer, especially since you apply to so frequently and it soaks into your skin. Below are the ingredients in the H. Honeycup plant based spray.

  1. Alcohol Denatured
    This plant based ethyl alcohol (ethanol) is a powerful cleaning agent. Denatured means it’s treated so it’s not suitable for drinking. The CDC recommends a minimum of 60% alcohol for sanitizer when hand washing isn’t possible. This has 70%.
