Virtues of Hand Washing

We’re moving into flu season.  How can we protect ourselves?  By washing our hands!

Hand washing is the best, easiest, and cheapest way of preventing the spread of many infection.  According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), hand washing offers great rewards in terms of preventing illness. Adopting this simple habit can play a major role in protecting your health, and that of your family. Scientists estimate that people are not washing their hands often or well enough and may transmit up to 80% of all infections by their hands. From doorknobs, to animals, to food, harmful germs can live on almost everything. Hand washing may be the single most important thing you do to help stop the spread of infection and stay healthy.

Karita recommends using Karita’s Handmade Soap because of its superior cleaning properties.  Thoroughly wash hands using warm water and soap, rubbing them together for 15 to 30 seconds.
