While handwashing was always important, it became even more important since the pandemic began. If you would like some advice on the best handwashing practices, consider taking a look at Visiting Angels Sarasota’s tips. 

There are five steps when it comes to good handwashing. One, you must wet your hands with water. The water can be cold, warm, or hot. The temperature does not matter. Two, try to apply soap all over your hand. Three, scrub your soapy hands together for at least twenty seconds. Four, rinse off your soapy hands. Five, dry your hands. You can air-dry your hands, use a napkin, or use a clean cloth.
