Gross! But Just in Time for Flu Season. Classroom Experiment Shows the Importance of Hand-Washing

It’s flu season! Let’s look at the old advice about washing your hands in good old fashioned soap and water. This elementary school teacher ran an experiment that went viral (pun intended!) on the internet to show how sanitizer stacks up against soap and water in the bug department. Idaho teacher Jaralee Annice Metcalf showed her students what happens to bread that’s been touched with dirty hands.

It’s gross and cool at the same time. And I love that Clorox picked up on it and shipped in some cleaning products!
