Don't be gross. Wash your hands.
1 in 3 American adults don’t wash their hands after using the bathroom. That means many of the people you meet every day might have bacteria on their hands that could give you the flu, salmonella, or other illnesses.
The good news is that it only takes 20 seconds to greatly reduce your risk of getting sick. Washing your hands correctly with soap and water gets rid of those germs so you can stay healthy.
The Project WET Foundation is on a mission to promote healthy handwashing habits worldwide, but we can't do it without you. Your support helps us create and share our science-based, interactive educational resources. Thank you for your commitment to handwashing education.
