Wash Those Hands
You will want to get rid of bacteria before you eat, handle food, or set the table.
Follow these three steps to be sure that you have killed as many bacteria as possible.
- Wash your hands with soap and warm water for 20 seconds.
How long is 20 seconds?
As long as it takes to sing the Happy Birthday song — twice.
- Dry your hands on a clean kitchen or paper towel.
- Throw away the paper towel.
