Natural Lemon-Eucalyptus Handwashing Soap
Singing a tune to your favorite song while following the 5 steps of handwashing is a new kind of busywork we all need to do to stay healthy.
The CDC tells us that–
“Regular handwashing, particularly before and after certain activities, is one of the best ways to remove germs, avoid getting sick, and prevent the spread of germs to others. It’s quick, it’s simple, and it can keep us all from getting sick. Handwashing is a win for everyone, except the germs.”
A friendly reminder to keep our hands clean is not singular to little kids who constantly get their hands dirty. It’s an important step anyone at any age can take to avoid getting sick and spreading germs. So in light of inspiring joy with handwashing, see below for a natural soap recipe to create at home with your LEVO. Happy Handwashing!
