The unwashed hand contains an average of 84 different germ colonies. It is easy for a germ on your hand to end up in your mouth. Washing your hands properly is the best way to stop germs from spreading. You will have 1000 more bacteria on your hands after you have washed your hands if you do not dry them correctly. Germs love to hide around your fingernail beds and often remain there even after hand washing. There are more germs on the average computer keyboard than there are on your toilet. Children at 12 Upper Hutt early childhood centres and kindergartens are scrubbing up on proper hand washing techniques. They are taking part in the Protex Clean Hands, Good Health programme which teaches pre-schoolers the importance of handwashing. The Upper Hutt participants are Paradise Childcare Centre (Trentham), Children First Ave Early Childhood Centre, Cottle Kindergarten, Elizabeth Avenue Childcare Centre, Happy Days Childcare on Royal, Stepping Stones Childcare Centre, Orongomai Te Kohanga Reo, Children First Early Childhood Centre; and Brown Owl, Tren- tham, Irmgard Ritchie and Heretaunga Kindergartens. The national campaign aims to remind New Zealanders that good hygiene practices need to be taught from an early age to lay the foundation for good health throughout life. Protex is taking the initiative to educate children, as hand washing and good general hygiene practices in particular are essential to help reduce the spread of germs.
