Washing your hands properly is a way to help protect yourself and your loved ones from illnesses like food poisoning.
Step 1: Wet your hands and apply soap
Wet your hands thoroughly under warm running water and apply soap to them

Do this for at least 20 seconds
Step 3. Rinse well
Rinse the soap off completely under a stream of clean running water
