Hand-Washing Habits

Children's Ministry Magazine

Though many church nurseries require workers to use gloves for changing diapers, gloves don't substitute for effective hand-washing. Hand-washing is still the best way to prevent the spread of germs. Set a policy requiring workers to wash hands, especially upon entering the nursery, before feeding babies, and after every diaper change. In your hand-washing area, provide hot water, a mild anti-bacterial soap, a nail brush, and paper towels. To wash properly, follow these steps:

  • Scrub hands and wrists with soap and rinse with hot water.
  • Scrub the area under the nails.
  • Dry hands.
  • Shut off the faucet with a paper towel to avoid recontamination.
