Steps of Hand-washing!

We have learnt the importance of hand washing in last few years when the COVID 19 pandemic hit us. But how to wash hands properly? Is there a step-wise procedure?
Yes there is a proper and stepwise protocol for washing hands thoroughly.
World Health Organization ( WHO ) and CDC has endorsed a seven step hand-washing procedure:
1. Wet your hands with clean running water.
2. Apply soap in a quantity that can cover all surfaces of your hands and wrists.
3. Rub your hands together and form lather thoroughly. Rub all surfaces of your hands, fingertips, fingernails, and wrists.
4. Rub your hands and wrists for at least 20-30 seconds.
5. Now rinse your hands and wrists under clean, running water.
6. Dry your hands and wrists with a clean tissue or towel.
7. Use the same to turn off the faucet.
There is also a mnemonic used to remember the steps of proper hand-washing. SUMAN-K where :
S stands for seedha( rubbing palms against each other),
U stands for ulta (rubbing back of your hands),
M stands for mutthi (Making a fist),
A stands for angutha ( thumb),
N stands for nakhun( nails), and 
K stands for kalai (wrist).
