Washing your hands

Why must you wash your hands?

We must wash our hands  for the sake of our health.

To keep ourselves healthy and fit.

If we don’t wash them, dirt could build up on our hands and pass on illnesses to us and to those around us.

Everything we touch may be dirty and pass bacteria or germs on to us.

Imagine, for example:

* a doorknob
* a banister
* a bus rail
* touching our noses or blowing them
