Hand Wash, A Passport To Good Health
Clean Hands: Your passport to good health and hygiene!
Personal hygiene is something that concerns us all and is a vital factor to consider if you aim to live a healthy life. This blog aims to shine light on an activity that we all usually take for granted, but it actually is the building block of personal hygiene; washing hands.
Washing and cleaning: Not the same
Washing your hands and cleaning your hands are two different things. Especially when you are exposed to industry-level chemicals and pollutants. According to health experts, not washing the hands properly is a major cause of stomach infection, allergy, and even food poisoning. Harmful bacteria and other microbes find their way to your digestive system through your hands. Therefore, washing your hands alone won’t just cut it, you need to clean.

When involved in a heavy-duty work atmosphere, the usual washing of hands is not enough. It is part of Careclean’s mission to ensure that we provide quality products and also ensure the safety of those who use them. What you need is a full-fledged protocol to make sure that your hands are safe and you stay healthy.
Here is as step-wise guide to follow:
- Wet hands with water

- Rub hands palm to palm
