So, how clean are your hands?

Growing up, we’re pretty sure your mother told you to wash your hands, right? And even though the nagging was never relenting, you may have to thank your mum because it seems that old saying of “your mother is always right”, is definitely true.

In support of the World Health Organisation’s Clean your Hands campaign, the Public Health England (PHE) are showing people just how dirty their hands are, if not washed. The images released by PHE show the invisible germs on our hands that are so often forgotten about.


A few public washroom users may do well from looking at the third image…

According to Dr Paul Cosford, just one bacterium can grow into hundreds and thousands in a relatively short space of time.

Eek, we may start carrying around a hand sanitizer with us when we’re out.
