"Clean hands!!"

  1. OK, I am doing a documented report for speech, (UGG!), on the extreme importance of how to properly clean hands. I thought about placing a "glow-in-the-dark lotion" on my hands and shaking everyones' hand. Then turn the light off and show them the lotion and how easily germs are spread.
    So, does anyone have any GOOD, documented, website info to back up my claim? Thanks. Texas

    I don't have any website info but our teacher did this the first day of class. It's really neat to see how far things can travel. She used baby powder and a little mini black light.
    Good luck with your speech.

    What about everything you learned in Micro. Show them a few pictures, that will convince them.

    i have a question...i'm not a real nurse i just need some information. My manager at work has some really weird red bumps on her hands that ooze and puss and we were just wondering what it is. We thought it was some sort of eczema but every thing we have checked out has shown it is not...can you help us out?
    Much love,

    We cannot give medical advice on this board. If your employer is concerned, she should have a doctor look at her hand.

    How exactly did she do this? I was going to use lotion, but it was going to be expensive! Thanks. Texas
