CDC Cites Frequent Hand Washing as Key Precaution

NEW YORK, April 30 /PRNewswire/ -- As Swine Flu (H1N1) infections intensify, people around the world are taking proactive steps to protect themselves. While wearing face masks and stocking up on over-the-counter flu medication can help you avoid this disease, The U.S. Center for Disease Control (CDC) is also recommending a simpler measure: frequent, thorough hand washing. With a full 80 percent of infections spread through hand contact, taking the time to properly wash hands can help prevent the spread of Swine Flu (H1N1), as well as other viruses and germs.

"Handwashing is always important, but particularly after coughing, sneezing or blowing your nose, using the restroom, eating or preparing food or touching an animal," says Eileen Lantier, RN, PhD and Associate Dean of Human Ecology at Syracuse University. Dr. Lantier also notes viruses can be transferred by shaking hands, social contact and in public places. "To effectively and thoroughly clean hands, pump an antibacterial soap into hands and lather aggressively for at least 20 seconds. After rinsing and drying, use a towel to turn off the faucet and open doors."

To ensure you're killing as much potentially harmful bacteria as possible, follow these five tips for effective hand washing:

  • Wash your hands frequently throughout the day
  • Use an antibacterial liquid soap, such as Dial Complete, the #1 Doctor-Recommended brand, for good hand hygiene
  • Make sure to lather vigorously in order to increase the effectiveness of the soap in reducing dirt, germs and bacteria from your hands
