Our line of popular hand washing posters have been proven to motivate people to “Scrub ’em!” They can be found in schools, day care centers, adult homes, restaurants, hospitals and other places where people gather. Promoting hand washing is what we do.





Let’s Get Real About Hand Washing

1. People die from super bugs.
2. Most germs spread from touching-touching food, touching one’s mouth, eyes and nose.
3. Every year children die from diarrhea-the second common cause of childhood death.
4. Fewer than 25 percent of food handlers wash their hands before food preparation.
5. Pneumonia is the number one cause of child deaths.
6. Over 3,000 germs can be found on the typical human hand.
7. Every door knob, hand rail, shopping cart handle, remote…just about everything you touch is alive with germs.


Hand Washing Initiatives Pay Big Dividends
