How to Wash Your Hands

Practice with your kids or as a family to make sure everyone’s doing it correctly.

  1. Wet your hands with clean, running water (warm or cold).
  2. Apply soap.
  3. Lather your hands with soap. Rub hands together. Don’t forget the backs of your hands, between your fingers and under your nails.
  4. Scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds. Sing the “Happy Birthday” song from beginning to end twice as a simple timer.
  5. Rinse your hands well under clean, running water.
  6. Dry your hands using a clean towel or air dry them.
  7. If no soap is available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
