Hands are the main pathway of germ transmission. Now more so then ever before, hand hygiene is a vitally important way to avoid the transmission of harmful germs and prevent infections.

Some of the key times to wash hands to avoid spreading germs are:
- Before, during, and after preparing food.
- Before and after eating food.
- Before and after caring for someone at home who is sick with vomiting or diarrhea.
- Before and after treating a cut or wound.
- Using the toilet.
- Changing diapers or cleaning up a child who has used the toilet.
- Blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
- Touching an animal, animal feed, or animal waste.
- Handling pet food or pet treats.
- Touching garbage.
HOW to Wash Hands?
Following the Ministry of Health guidelines, we have put together key steps to effectively wash your hands:
- Wet your hands under clean running water. Use warm water if available.
- Use Surmanti Persian Lime & Lemongrass Hand Wash on your hands and wash for 20 seconds. Liquid soap is best.
- Rub hands together until the soap makes bubbles.
- Rub on both sides of both hands, in-between fingers and thumbs and round and round both hands.
- Rinse all the soap off under clean running water. Use warm water if available.
- Dry your hands all over for 20 seconds. Using a paper towel is best (or, if at home, a clean dry towel).
