What Healthcare Professionals Are Saying...
Step 1 - Become A Dirt Detector
Germs are sneaky. They like to hide in dirt that can stick to your hands. Washing hands with soap and water helps to loosen the dirt, making it easier to wash germs away.
• Wet hands with warm, running water and dispense one to two pumps of Inspector Hector® Dirt Detector Color Changing Soap into your child's palms.
Step 2 - Washing Longer = Healthy & Stronger
It can take 15 to 20 seconds of good scrubbing to remove dirt and germs, so don’t be afraid to work up a lather.
• Show your child how to wash properly, making sure they scrub the back of their hands, between their fingers and under fingernails too. When Inspector Hector joins in the fun – the soap changes colors, so kids know when they're done!
Step 3 - Leave Germs High and Dry
• Rinse hands thoroughly and remind your child to dry their hands with a clean towel (instead of wiping hands on their jeans or their shirt). That’s the way to get rid of that dirt!
