Hand washing is important because we carry bacteria on our hands and if this goes to our body then it makes more bacteria in our body. This is why we need to wash properly

Hands should be washed every now and then after shaking hands with friend and also after touching someones clothes as you do not know whether they used a strong detergent to clean their clothes,so it is advisible to wash your hands the time you think of taking a bite with your hands.

Proper hand washing is extremely important, whether using gloves or not. If using gloves, hand washing should be carried out before putting gloves on, between glove changes and after gloves are removed. The problem with the use of gloves is that in situations where staff is not given proper training in food safety, gloves are often perceived as a barrier to food contamination. Staff may then proceed to carry out many non-food related tasks (e.g. handling money, emptying bins, wiping counters) while wearing the same pair of gloves that they then use to prepare food.

Proper hand washing is important because we have to maintain our proper hygiene in order to avoid bacteria or any illness. So we must wash our hands every hours to maintain cleanliness.
