    This is not intended to be something which is patently obvious. Yes, we all should know that hand washing is a good thing... But this study shows it to be true.

    Conclusion: Wash your hands, do it often and do it right.

    There are more than one potential epidemic level events, right now, in the world. This is Prepper 101 level advice, but too many people do not do this. It is up to each of us to enforce a hand washing protocol on everyone with whom they are in contact.

    Got Soap, got hot water? Do you use them? Does everyone in your home use them?
    I confess that we have a household member who does not wash after using the restroom. This is a point of contention in our household. How about yours?

    Since you cannot control everyone, do you at least have a sanitary wipe system in your EDC? Do you use it to wipe down areas that you must touch, such as doorknobs, chairs and table surfaces?
