The #1 Germ Killer: Washing Hands !

This Sparked Me!

I wash my hands very often (not obsessively so, however). This is the #1 germ/bacteria killer. People tend to underestimate its effectiveness.

    I'm always washing my hands. I even use paper towels to open doors of bathrooms in public places and also use them to open and close light switches.
I just wish my s/o would do the same.

    Washing hands is absolutely the best way to avoid spreading/catching germs/bacteria. Avoiding touching your face and eyes or mouth with your hands during the routine day, is another. emoticon
