You know you are supposed to sing the ABC’s or Happy birthday so you wash your hands long enough?  Well…

As everyone works to prevent the spread of coronavirus,  some new tips have been circulating.

Like one that offered five tips for using hand sanitizer correctly, but the second tip seemed a bit confusing.

This should take around 20 seconds.

The Centers for Disease Control have a guide for the best practices for hand washing and using hand sanitizer.

but hand sanitizer can be an effective option in a pinch.

But not don’t leave on hands for three to four minutes!
