How should you wash your hands?
Wet your hands with clean, running water (warm or cold), turn off the tap, and apply soap.
Lather your hands by rubbing them together with the soap. Be sure to lather the backs of your hands, between your fingers, and under your nails.
Scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds. Need a timer? Hum the "Happy Birthday" song from beginning to end twice.
Rinse your hands well under clean, running water.
Dry your hands using a clean towel or air dry them.
We've all heard it repeated more times than we can count.....wash your hands.
Getting health care professionals to comply with notices to wash their hands before and after dealing with patients has been something of a thorn in the side of many hospitals. Although this simple measure limits the spread of sickness — and could potentially reduce the nation’s hospital health care bill by billions of dollars — many doctors and nurses simply ignore it. Compliance rates for hand washing in American hospitals are only around 40 percent, and years of awareness programs urging doctors to wash up or use disinfectant gels have had little effect.

Everybody should wash their hands. Only problem is once you're done your hands become coated in germs from the towels, door handles, even adjusting your own clothes.

Remember, if you try this in a public restroom in the "land of the free", the penalty is seven years in prison and an unlimited fine.
Also, being unnaturally clean is damaging our immune systems and causing a lot of health problems.
I also rip off the first few sheets of toilet paper and never use the first toilet seat cover in the box.
