As parents we have to teach our children many things in life, and personal hygiene and hand washing should not be missed out. Jack hasn't really learnt much about germs or spreading of them so far, yet is beginning to learn its important to wash his hands before eating, after playing outside and after a nappy change. Children of both genders seem to just attract dirt, but for some reason boys more so. Jack like many other children of his age needs constant prompting to wash his hands, but in the long term he will learn and will know its important.
Hand washing is as simple as can be,
1. Wet hands under warm running water and rub soap all over hands, including in between the fingers and nails whilst counting to at least 30.
2. Rinse soap away thoroughly with warm water.
3. Dry your hands using a clean dry towel.
As well as washing your hands, choosing the right hand soap is important. Choosing one which is anti-bacterial can help kill germs more effectively. We always ensure we have an anti-bacterial hand wash. Another good thing is the Dettol No-Touch Hand Wash System, it dispenses the soap into your hand when detected by the sensor meaning you never have to touch it. We recently received one to test out and we've found its been really useful. Being a no-touch system it never comes into contact with the bacteria on your hands, helping keep it clean and hygienic. You can also switch the sensor off so you don't accidentally dispense soap each time your near it.
Along with the No-Touch hand was system we also received some surface cleaner and wipes as keeping your surfaces clean is also important to maintain a healthy hygienic home. Dettol kills 99.9% of bacteria and viruses including E Coli, salmonella, MRSA, and flu viruses whilst leaving no residue behind.
