Handwashing is one of the best ways to protect yourself and your family from getting sick. Handwashing is like a "do-it-yourself" vaccine—it involves five simple and effective steps (Wet, Lather, Scrub, Rinse, Dry) you can take to reduce the spread of diarrheal and respiratory illness so you can stay healthy.

It's quick, it's simple, and it can keep us all from getting sick. For more information click on the title to view the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) web site.
