How Culinary Professionals Wash Their Hands - and you should, too!:

People think they know how wash their hands. Turn water on, rub a little soap on their palms, swish, rinse & done.

Here’s how food professionals are trained to wash their hands:

Use water as hot as your hands can comfortably stand.

Wet hands & apply soap (antibacterial preferred).

Scrub between fingers & under the nails (keep nails trimmed short).

Rub hands together vigorously for 20 seconds (hum “Happy Birthday”)

Rinse hands thoroughly.

Turn off faucet with a single-use disposable towel or your elbow.
