Stay Healthy: Celebrate Global Handwashing Day 2023 with Eris Industries!

Why Global Handwashing Day Matters:

Global Handwashing Day is a global advocacy day dedicated to increasing awareness and understanding about the importance of handwashing with soap as an effective and affordable way to prevent diseases and save lives. This day serves as a reminder of the role handwashing plays in maintaining our health, especially in times when infectious diseases are a concern.

The Importance of Handwashing:

Handwashing is one of the simplest and most efficient strategies to prevent the transmission of illness. Hand cleanliness aids in the removal of germs, bacteria, and viruses that can make us unwell. Here are some of the main reasons why handwashing is so important:

1. Disease Prevention: Handwashing regularly can help reduce the spread of infectious diseases such as colds, flu, and COVID-19.

2. Food Safety: Handwashing is crucial when handling food to prevent foodborne illnesses.

3. Community Health: Promoting handwashing in communities can reduce the spread of diseases and enhance overall public health.

4. Personal Hygiene: Handwashing is a basic aspect of personal hygiene that should be practiced by everyone.

How to Wash Your Hands Properly:

Now that we’ve established why handwashing is essential, let’s review the correct way to wash your hands:

1. Wet your hands with clean, running water.

2. Apply Eripride handwash and lather your hands by rubbing them together. Be sure to get it on the back of your hands, between your fingers, and under your nails.

3. Scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds. You can sing “Happy Birthday” twice to ensure you wash for the recommended duration.

4. Rinse your hands thoroughly under running water.

5. Dry your hands with a clean towel or air dryer.
