When we touch a surface such as a doorknob or handrail, we pick up germs up with our hands. And if we then touch our face, which we often do, we pass on these germs from our hands to our mouth, nose and eyes. These are the key entry points through which germs sneak into our bodies.
How does soap help?
Soap “is almost like a demolition team breaking down a building and taking all the bricks away,” says Palli Thordarson, a chemistry professor at the University of New South Wales.
That’s because when you wash your hands with soap and water, you’re not just wiping viruses off your hands and sending them down the drain. You’re actually annihilating the viruses, rendering them harmless.
How to wash your hands and face?
- Take approx 20 seconds for effective breakdown of the virus.
- Also the technique you use to wash your hands are important.
Wash every part of the hand, surface, fingers and nails thoroughly.
- Follow hand hygiene practices frequently and as advised by your local government authorities.
