The World Health Organization just released an informative video on the MOST CORRECT WAY to wash your hands! Yeah, all this time, you thought that soap and water was all it took to do the trick, but the following video will show you that not only are you WRONG, but you're absolutely FILTHY, you disgusting animal!

Let's take a look, shall we?

The first step is WASH YOUR DAMN HANDS.

The whole soap, warm water, sudsy, sing 'Happy Birthday' hand wash technique is just the starter, but it helps get all of the visible dirt off, which will help you when it's time to make your hands SUPER clean.

The next step is BUST OUT THE ALCOHOL.

So now you're going to grab your alcohol-based hand sanitizer. If you're one of those people who always have a bottle of Purell handy, it's time to generously apply it (roughly palm-sized) so that the entire surface of your hands is sufficiently covered in sanitizer.

Now that you're sufficiently gooey, its HAND RUBBING TIME.

Okay, this is where the game-changing starts. This is called the hand-rubbing technique, and takes about 30 seconds to do from start-to-finish.


Rub your hands together like you're devising an evil plan or helping your mom make meatballs. Whatever this looks like.

Next clean between your fingers and across the backs of your hands by making doing this two turkey finger dance.

Now bring it back to the Mr. Burns move except lace your fingers this time for advanced devious plan-making.

I'm not sure what to call this move, but it helps to deep clean the backs of your fingers. Aww, yeah.

Clean your thumbs by gripping it and rotating. Just don't grip too hard, you guys. You'll end up tearing that thumb right off.

Just when you thought you were done with your fingers, use your palm to deep clean the tips.

Congratulations! You're finished!


Check out the full video above to work on your technique, and then let me know:

Have you ever felt such a deep clean before in your life?!

Or if you read this entire thing and have no idea why, you've found the most random card I will probably write this week. Good job.
random yes. insightful yes. chuckled yes. has my day been improved? yes
just let me be filthy
@BeannachtOraibh LOL This was so perfectly informative.
If you are the bear, I suggest that you start with cold water. Warm or hot water causes the proteins in blood to adhere more vigorously because protein bonds rely on heat to activate. And since your hair and skin are comprised of proteins, using warm or hot water causes the proteins in blood on your hands to try to bond with the proteins in your skin and hair on your hands. Cold water releases or compromises those bonds, and makes blood easier to wash away. Good to know for anyone that bleeds once a month, ijs.
I'd be happy if people could wash their hands after they use the restroom. Idgaf if they wash them half assed, it's better than not at all. Either way, props OP.
