News: GlitterBug Hand Hygiene

Proper hand hygiene is critical to stop the spread of diseases, bacteria, germs, and other nasties. Despite the importance of hand hygiene, there are still so many people who don’t wash or sanitise their hands properly. The reason? They haven’t been taught how to do it properly, or they think it isn’t so important.

 GlitterBug helped us break down students’ preconceptions about hand hygiene and train them how to clean their hands effectively. We did this by covering our hands in a special UV gel. Then we washed our hands and put them under a UV light – this showed up where we had missed washing!kindergarten to seniors.
