Global Handwashing Day!

October 15th is Global Handwashing Day!  

With the kids back in school and flu season starting up again, we thought this would be the best time to remind everyone of the importance of washing your hands.  While you may be diligent about your hand hygiene, you may not know about the World Health Organization's recommended way to wash your hands.  Watch the video below to learn more.
