Wash those hands! Creatives types are showing up to teach you good hygiene.
In the grips of the current COVID–19 climate, we’re all understandably in the midst of looking at our current hygienic ways, and ideally improving it for the better of all of us!
Over the past few weeks I’ve spotted a lot of very helpful and creative projects popping up within the personal hygiene realm, and I’d love to highlight them!
We’ve learned that washing your hands to the tune of Happy Birthday (some people say twice) is a great way to get the correct amount of time to have truly clean hands. Wash Your Lyrics allows you to provide a song, and with the tempo and lyrics to that song, it will give you the step by step guide to washing your hands with it!
We’ve also got some stats on what songs people have been picking! I can’t say there are too many surprises there!
This next site has perhaps the most glorious domain name, and to match it, a fantastic application. Do Not Touch Your Face is amazing.
Enable your webcam, go through a little configuration, and you’ll have an amazing companion that will be on your case from the get-go. Get your hands near your face, and you will hear an amazingly clear “NO!” … I left it running for a while as I tried to work, and the dividends began to roll in.
We made a little site that will yell at you... whenever you touch your face. Hope it helps you learn to stop touching your face!

This last memory technique is very effective. Digital artist CACHEFLOWE made this catchy tune, which has been stuck inside my head since the first time I heard it.
Somehow, I think its the crass language and somewhat simple, repetitive tune that has made it easily stick!
Experts recommend washing your hands for as long as it takes to sing “Happy Birthday”. That doesn’t make sense, so I made a song and infographic for the occasion. Sing it to your kids 5 times for proper sanitation. 🔈👏🏼🔈👏🏼🔈 #COVIDー19 #coronavirus pic.twitter.com/hDEzxF4nxD— CACHΞFLOWΞ (@cacheflowe) March 5, 2020
If you’ve got any more memory techniques, cool applications or creative displays that will be generally positive to all of our hygiene, please, send them in!
