The importance of Hand Washing

Washing hands is a crucial step we must take in order to prevent the spread of germs.

Let’s see when you must wash your hands:

  • Before & after meals’ preparation
  • Before eating
  • Before & after having been in contact with infected people
  • Before & after the treatment of cuts and wounds
  • After the use of toilets, the change of diapers and sanitary towels, the cleaning of intimate parts
  • After sneezing and coughing
  • After having touched animals and/or their wastes
  • After having touched wastes
  • In case of visibly dirty or oily hands
  • After attending public spaces, public transport, swimming pools, gyms etc. and having touched surfaces contaminated by germs

Coronavirus & hygiene

When we touch a contaminated surface, the virus migrates on our hands, sticking to the fat that covers them.

The surfactants present in soaps and detergents have two main functions: not only they take away the grease and dirt present on the skin, but they also remove the virus with them. Moreover, they act precisely on the virus by breaking up its structure.

Coronaviruses, in fact, are among those viruses that cover the main body (called capsid and made up of proteins) with a lipid envelope, that is mainly composed of fats. The surfactants hook them and take them away, disrupting their wrapping.

These are the reasons why the WHO World Health Organization indicates the use of soaps as one of the most effective preventive actions to mitigate the effects of the epidemic.
