Record Set For Hand Sanitizing
Score one for healthy hygiene. Prior to the Philadelphia Union-LA Galaxy soccer match on Oct.7, 2,151 fans achieved a new record with Guinness World Records for simultaneously sanitizing their hands. Global hygiene company SCA and its Tork brand of away-from-home paper and hand hygiene products sponsored the event at Philadelphia’s PPL Park to advocate for proper hand hygiene.
To establish the world record, fans placed a small amount of hand sanitizer on their hands. Ensuring the guidelines were properly followed, participants then simultaneously rubbed their hands together for 60 seconds before an on-site Guinness representative declared the new record officially established.
