Washing your hands is a waste of money. Does that sound crazy? Well, of coarse is does! But the soap you use may be soaking you in unnecessary coasts.
Hand soaps fill entire isles with handfuls of choices. Many brand themselves as germ killing and antibacterial. That selling point can coast more than plain soaps.
However, research shows that antibacterial soaps are no more effective than plane soap and water when it comes to disease killing germs.
Hand washing is crucial for good health, but the soap you use isn’t as important as how, and how often, you wash. Wash your hands throughout the day, pay attention to all the surfaces of your hands, and wash for twenty seconds.
All soaps are antibacterial regardless of that fancy label, so don’t get caught in the battle of the bottle.
