Save lives: Clean your hands – top tips for hand hygiene

The World Health Organisation is campaigning “Save lives: Clean your hands”. It’s the perfect time to start new routines and habits, so why not teach your little ones a thorough hand washing routine?

Squid Soap, the innovative, gentle children’s soap teaches tots to wash their hands properly in a fun and interactive way, it even comes with a colourful squid toy. By simply pushing down on the dispenser, a washable stamp is stamped on their hand, which children can wash off with the gentle, creamy lather, to clean their hands thoroughly.
