Are You Washing Your Hands All Wrong?

Here’s a new reason to say “Ewwwwww!” Apparently, most of us don’t wash our hands properly to ensure that we don’t pass germs to other people, to our food and more. A new study from the US Department of Agriculture evaluated whether or not people wash their hands for the full 20 seconds recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The study looked at 383 people in six test kitchens in the metro Raleigh-Durham area in North Carolina and in Smithfield, North Carolina.

In a study in 2013 by Michigan State University, they found that only 5% of people washed their hands as they should. This time, they found that about half of the time, participants actually spread bacteria to spice containers in the kitchens and 11% of the time, they spread it to refrigerator handles.

How should you be washing your hands? You need to soap up and then spend twenty seconds lathering your hands, the back of your hands, and in between your fingers. Make sure you dry off with a clean towel – many studies have found that people use towels that have been used to wipe down counter tops and for other purposes and these aren’t clean.
