Washing your hands regularly with soap and water removes germs from your hands and helps prevent infections because:

1. You touch your face more than you realize and germs can enter the body through your eyes, nose, and mouth.
2. Germs can get into your food and drinks if you're touching them with unwashed hands and some germs can multiply in certain foods!
3. Germs can be transferred to objects like doorknobs, handrails, tables, or toys and then passed to another person.
