Want to help your family develop better hand washing habits? While keeping alcohol sprays accessible helps, nothing beats washing with soap and water.
According to the CDC, washing hands with soap and water could effectively lower the deaths tied to gastrointestinal diseases worldwide by about 50 percent. In addition, London researchers estimated that if everyone adapted the habit of routinely washing their hands, that practice alone would stop a million deaths from happening every year. For instance trachoma, which is one of the world’s top causes of blindness—the kind that can be prevented—has been primarily attributed to a basic failure of facial hygiene. Often, people contract the disease when they touch their eyes with dirty hands.
Given all these reasons, it’s important, now more than ever, to make sure everyone in your family learn solid hand washing habits. And one way to encourage this at home is to use portable outdoor sinks. According to HouseLogic, portable sinks are a great way to provide everyone in the family with easy access to proper hand washing stations. Read on to find out more about how these sinks could help you build better hand washing habits:
- Gardening sessions. Do you love spending time out in the garden, digging up weeds, checking your roses and dahlias, and generally puttering around? If you do, then having to get up every now and then to wash your hands isn’t really ideal—for you or for your knees. Getting one of the many portable outdoor sinks out there, though, allows you to enjoy your gardening and have easy access to a hand washing station. You can easily wheel it out into your garden, put it in a good spot, and start digging in the dirt. And because some models offer these sinks with its own heater and tanks, you can get hot water without having to worry about hooking it up with your own plumbing system.
- Camping weekend. Going away to camp for the weekend? Make sure the kids have access to hand washing stations so they stay clean and safe even when they’re just telling ghost stories and toasting marshmallows around a bonfire.
- Playtime outside. And if your kids like to play outside all day, one way to remind them to wash their hands is to simply put those sinks in great locations—right by the back door. That way, they’ll see the sink and wash their hands without being told, saving you the trouble of nagging them to death.
