We use our hands to carry out most day-to-day activities, both in and outside the home. But rarely do we realize that our hands are also the primary agents of harmful germ transmission.
The common, exposed surfaces that we touch every day contain millions of harmful bacteria and viruses. Germs enter our bodies when we touch our mouth, eyes, or food immediately after touching an affected surface. Not everything that can cause diseases is visible to the eye. Most of the microbes are invisible and remain on the skin for a long time if not disinfected.
