A good before-school lesson: keep your hands clean Around infants

Keeping germs away from babies is especially important as their immune systems are still growing and adapting to the environment. Wash your hands before handling an infant and before and after changing diapers.

In the bathroom

Bacteria linger in bathrooms, so washing up after using the bathroom is one of the easiest ways to help keep these germs at bay.

When You or Someone Else is Sick or Hurt

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the best way to help prevent infectious diseases is by keeping your hands clean; a lesson you might want to teach your children before school starts.

Teaching kids about proper handwashing at home helps them maintain good habits and according to the CDC, can aid in preventing respiratory infections such as strep throat and gastrointestinal disorders.

Washing hands after sneezing or blowing your nose when you are ill or after visiting someone else who is ill can help avoid spreading bacteria. When treating a wound or injury, it is important to maintain clean hands so germs don't find an easy way in.
