When Should I Wash?

Before you

  • Prepare or eat food
  • Treat a cut or wound
  • Tend to someone who's sick
  • Put in or take out contact lenses
  • Do any kind of activity that involves putting your fingers in or near your mouth, eyes, etc.

After you

  • Go to the bathroom
  • Handle uncooked foods, especially raw meat
  • Eat
  • Blow your nose, cough or sneeze
  • Handle garbage
  • Tend to someone who's sick
  • Change a diaper
  • Play with or touch a pet, especially reptiles and exotic animals

Handwashing is mostly a matter of common sense. And what happens when you skimp on that common sense? That's the subject of a video created by some students at River Ridge High School in New Port Richey, Fla. (You can choose the 2.2M high bandwidth version or, if you're using a modem, the 513K low bandwidth version might be a lot faster for you. You'll need the Quicktime player to view these video files. You can download it for free here.)
