Don’t care to wash your hands before eating a meal? Sometimes, we often are in a hurry or are too hungry that we often don’t think of taking those extra few minutes to wash off, but after seeing this, you might want to reconsider.
This picture, posted by a teacher, Courtney Lee Simpson, on Facebook shows just how important handwashing can be.
She wrote along with the photo,
“To all my teacher friends this is the grossest yet coolest experiment. I did this while teaching about germs and how they spread. You use three pieces of bread. You let all the kids see you put a piece of bread in a baggy with a glove on hence “controlled” then you wash your hands and put a piece of bread in a baggy for “clean” last but definitely not least you pass a piece of bread around and let every kid in class touch it then you put it in a baggy and label it dirty. Watch how the bread changes over time due to germs. It is so cool and a great way to teach the importance of hand washing.”
So with the disturbing results of this experiment clearly showing just how nasty germs on our hands truly are, just think about how gross it is to not wash your hands and eat out of a bag of chips, or box of crackers. Your dirty, germ filled hands are going in and out of the bag or box, rubbing the food inside and then when you are done you simply close the bag or box for yourself or someone else to enjoy later. All those germs just festering on the food product just waiting to be ate! Eww…gross!
