Wash Your Hands With Kleenex Hand Towels *Giveaway*

I am one of those people who use hand towels to dry my hands. But I thought that what I was doing was right. To only use hand towels to dry your hands or kitchen towels are used to only dry hands. I just assumed that using them like that was fine….. boy I was wrong!

There’s no question that good hand hygiene habits are important, but when it comes to clean hands, washing is only half of the equation. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends drying hands with a single-use towel to help prevent the spread of germs. Until the recent introduction of Kleenex Hand Towels, families have not had a practical alternative to cloth hand towels in their home bathrooms.

To better understand America’s current hand drying habits, Kleenex Hand Towels conducted a survey of more than 1,000 Americans to uncover the nation’s familiarity with the CDC’s hand drying recommendations.

Key Survey Findings:

  • The majority of Americans (89%) use a cloth hand towel to dry hands in their home bathroom for an average of 14.7 seconds.
  • Other hand drying methods used in home bathrooms include:
    • Using a paper towel or paper napkin (38%)
    • Simply shaking hands in the air to dry off (18%)
    • Wiping hands on a T-shirt or other article of clothing (9%)
  • Americans ages 18-24 are the most likely to shake their hands in the air (29%) or use an article of clothing to dry their hands (17%).

Crazy right? I fall in in the 89% by using a cloth hand towel. See I wash mine weekly and thought I was fine…

Visit KleenexHandTowels.com  for educational activities designed to teach hand hygiene and for additional information.

Drying hands properly can be just as important as washing. But suitable hand washing and drying can be quite a struggle when children are in a rush to go out and play. The Drying Song makes healthy hand drying fun for kids and adults alike.

My hands are gonna be clean
When I wash and I dry with mommy and sing
This song that’s exactly two clean hands long
Warm water and soap and bubbles that shine
A Kleenex Hand Towel that’s mine all mine
And a song that’s exactly two clean hands long
No yucky old towel’s gonna ruin my day
I dry my hands the Kleenex towel way
So if you’re a fan of clean hands too
Roll up your sleeves and I’ll sing with you

This song is absolutely adorable! My girls will agree with that, after only listening to the song a few times I have heard the girls singing the song while washing their hands. Check out their cute video:

    I like boxed Kleenex handtowels and am glad they are back on the market because they are better than paper towel rolls in places where it is inconvient to hang a towel holder.
