Properly washing your hands is essential to your health. Wash your hands before you put anything in your mouth, or before you give your children something to eat. The primary defense available to the health care industry is the simple, yet often neglected act of handwashing. Try to focus on getting your thumbs nice and clean and soapy, and in between your fingers.

Hands are the primary carriers of dirt, viruses, and bacteria, as they can come into contact with so many different surfaces throughout the day. The Gallup research found that the Dutch are the least likely to wash their hands with soap and water after using the toilet, with only 50 per cent reporting that they do so.

Washing your hands is an easy yet essential way to stop bacteria and germs from spreading, so all staff must know how to do it properly. The Centers for Disease Control recommend that you regularly wash your hands with soap and water, but when you are on the go and those things are unavailable, look to hand sanitizers as the next best thing.

Drying your hands properly is also important, Professor McLaws said. Interlace fingers and rub to clean edges of fingers. Wash hands for 20 seconds. Wash your hands when they are visibly dirty or after touching something that is visibly dirty, after going to the bathroom, and before preparing or eating food.

Regular handwashing by everybody in any place where such bugs arise means such superviruses can't get a foothold, and can't get out and spread. Rinse thoroughly under clean, running water. There is inconclusive research that suggests a higher germ concentration around some hand dryers, but using a hand dryer is definitely better than wiping your hands on your pants.
