Wash hands to avoid swine flu

WHO says us to wash our hands properly to avoid swine flu. So wash your hands frequently like the 'Healthy Hindustan' ad from Lifebuoy soap(about Lifebuoy Soap: In 1894, William Hesketh Lever launched Lifebuoy in the UK as the Royal Disinfectant Soap.)



Clean hands protect against H1N1 or Swine Flu. Keeping our hands clean is one of the most important things we can do to keep from getting sick and from spreading germs to others.

  • Clean your hands regularly.
  • Wash your hands with soap and water, and dry them thoroughly.
  • Use alcohol-based hand rub if you don’t have immediate access to soap and water.

Wash your hands properly

* Keeping our hands clean is one of the most important things we can do to keep from getting sick and from spreading germs to others.
* It is best to wash hands with soap and clean running water for 20 seconds
* If soap and clean water are not available, use an alcohol-based product to clean your hands

* Alcohol-based handrubs significantly reduce the number of germs on skin and are fast acting
* When using an alcohol-based hand rub, apply the product to the palm of one hand and rub hands together. Rub the product over all surfaces of hands and fingers until hands are dry
