Date:9/5/2007

But hand washing isn't just about dirt. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says hand washing is one of the most important things children can do to help stay healthy.

According to the CDC, the best time to wash your hands is:

-- Before eating.

-- Before, during and after handling or preparing food.

-- After using the bathroom.

-- After handling animals, their toys, leashes or waste.

-- After contact with blood, saliva, nasal secretions, etc.

-- After touching something that could be contaminated, such as a trash

can, cleaning cloth, soil, etc.

-- More often when someone in your home is sick.

-- Whenever they look dirty.

The CDC says it's best to wash your hands by vigorously scrubbing with soap and running water for about 20 seconds. For more information on hand- washing benefits, visit http://www.cdc.gov.
