Barcelona hygiene handwash - washing hands

Hand hygiene Barcelona, Spain

Washing hands and keeping your hands clean while visiting Barcelona and Spain. What could be more depressing that getting sick on vacation? Not much. To avoid this we recommend that you always wash hands thoroughly and as often as possible during your visit to Barcelona and Spain and carry alcohol-based Hand Sanitizer. This is a good tip because some restrooms in Barcelona restaurants and cafes do not always supply soap or even warm water and many residents and visitors to the city sometimes fail to wash their hands after restroom visits. Washing your hands is one of the best ways to avoid getting sick, spreading infections and spread of germs. If you cannot wash your hands then use Hand Sanitizer which can be bought in supermarkets and drugstores/farmacias.

When washing hands follow the steps shown in the WHO (World Health Organisation) YouTube video below which shows how best to wash your hands properly with soap and water - and how to use Hand Sanitizer lotion most effectively.
