CDC Approved Hand Washing Method, Step by Step

In the interest of public health, and for those of you in the classroom, we present this video guide to good handwashing .

Here are the steps:

  • Wet your hands. Use warm or cool water as hot water can be too hard.
  • Turn off the tap when cleaning to save water.
  • Lather up the soap and rub for 20 seconds (about as long as it takes to sing Happy Birthday twice).
  • Make sure you have the back of your hands, wrists, nails, and thumbs.
  • Rinse for 10 seconds (1 Happy Birthday).
  • Dry thoroughly and apply hand lotion.
