SDA, Society for Microbiology Dispense Hygiene Advice

November 30, -0001

The Soap and Detergent Association (SDA) and the American Society for Microbiology (ASM) have teamed up to produce hand hygiene education brochures available in print and online at www.cleaning101.com/handhygiene and www.washup.org

“Have U Washed Your Hands 2Day,” (which is also available in Spanish), offers children easy-to-remember information on when and why they should regularly wash their hands with soap and water. Also included are a word search and a hand washing quiz. Posters are also available at no cost.

“Don’t Get Caught Dirty Handed” reminds adults that many cases of colds, flu, and foodborne illness are spread by unclean hands, and these diseases are responsible for billions of dollars each year in health care expenditures and productivity losses in the U.S.

The brochure also provides statistics from a 2007 SDA/ASM study that found one-quarter of adults fail to wash their hands in public restrooms. More info: www.cleaning101.com
