It should come as no surprise to those of you who read our blog regularly that we’ve been publishing a lot of content related to handwashing lately. As the Experts in Hygiene we’ve always promoted the health benefits of good hygiene practices, and we think you’ll agree that good hand hygiene has never been more in the spotlight - or more important - than now.
And because we know it’s really hard to concentrate on too much of anything right now, we decided to do a quick round up for you of the most popular handwashing blogs on our site.
So here they are, our top 3 handwashing blog posts:
One of the very first blog posts we wrote back in 2017 looked at infections that can be spread by dirty hands. Of course, those were the good ol’ days when all we had to worry about was gastroenteritis, norovirus, and hepatitis, and coronavirus hadn’t yet entered the average person’s lexicon! Still worth a read though because all those other nasties haven’t gone away: they are still as much of a health threat as ever, and can also be prevented with good hand hygiene practices.

Our first real COVID-19 related post includes a to-the point (but scientific) explanation of why soap works so well in destroying viruses like COVID-19, a checklist of actions you can take to ensure a hygienic and safe workplace, as well as posters to download.

And of course, there has to be something for the kids to round off this threesome. Our team cooked up some fun “revolting rhymes” of our own, all about germs and the risks we take when we don’t wash our hands. You can read about Flu-ey Louis or Nosy Rosie and her germy ways, and supplement these with some this short handwashing video especially for kids.
Handwashing has always been an important subject to us, and we have written lots of blog articles on the topic, but it is even more important to maintain our hand hygiene now to minimise the risk of COVID-19.
