Germs and Data...

How Many Seconds Do You Have To Wash Your Hand to Get Rid Of Most Of the GERMS???


The graphs below illustrate our "hand germ" data.  


We started out with VERY germ covered hands (at 100% germs) and 0 seconds (we had not washed our hands yet).


After applying germ lotion, the students washed their hands for 5 seconds.  We then analyzed their hands with the black light and estimated the percent of germs left on their hands.  We repeated this procedure 3 more times, until the students had washed their hands for a total of 20 seconds.
