Handwashing is important in reducing your exposure to and the transmission of the new coronavirus, among other illnesses. But do you know how to properly wash your hands? It may be more complicated than you think.

World Vision is a leader in educating people on handwashing and reaches one new person with clean water every 10 seconds. In 2019 alone, World Vision reached 4.3 million people with hand-washing behavior-change education and facilitated building nearly half a million hand-washing facilities. Since 2011, World Vision has reached 25 million people with hygiene behavior-change promotion. In collaboration with partners, World Vision aims to reach everyone, everywhere it works with clean water, sanitation, and hygiene by 2030.

How to wash your hands

Because it’s hard to wash your hands without water, clean water is more important now than ever! Water is essential for handwashing and disinfecting surfaces to prevent the spread of life-threatening diseases such as COVID-19. Through our water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) work, World Vision staff teach kids around the world the importance of being thorough when washing their hands.

  1. Wet your hands with clean, running water, then turn off the tap and cover them with soap. Keep your hands lower than your elbows.
  2. Rub your palms together.
  3. Place your palms together, interlace your fingers, and rub them together.
  4. Place your right palm on top of your left hand, interlace your fingers, and scrub between your fingers. Now swap and do the same with your other hand.
  5. Use your left hand to rub your right thumb back and forth, before repeating with your other hand.
  6. Scrub underneath your nails, making sure no dirt remains.
  7. Scrub your palms with your fingernails.
  8. Place your right hand over your left wrist and twist your hand to scrub. Now swap and do the same with your other hand.
  9. Rinse your hands with water.
  10. Dry your hands with a towel, or in hot climates, air dry your hands by shaking them.
