Teaching your lil ones to wash their hands properly is key to preventing the spread of cold and flu viruses. A thorough hand washing should include soap and last at least 20 seconds, or two rounds of the "Happy Birthday" or "ABC" song. There are some soaps on the market, like Squid Soap, that require a full 20 seconds of sudsing before they disappear. It is also important to dry your hands with a paper cloth, rather than a towel that is reused.
