Hand washing is an important part of personal hygiene. Proper handwashing prevents a person from getting sick of various diseases and stops the spread of diseases as well. If hand is not washed properly, pathogenic organisms and contaminants can spread from hand into body (e.g. mouth, eyes, nose), into foods and drinks and onto inanimate objects such as tabletops, mobile phone, keyboard, hand rail, toys etc. which can easily lead to further diseases.
