I always have ideas swirling through my head about how to approach each essay I put together regarding hand hygiene.
Often, I see something in the news that sparks the fingers to pound the keyboard. Other times it’s something I witness that makes the words flow through my fingers.
This time, it is a combination of both; a fitting way to put together my 50th blog for 2018.
One is a follow-up to a thing I wrote a few months back about dogs licking humans; on the face, the arms, etc…as they just LOVE to lick. I hate it. Here IS a sad report that confirms why I have an aversion to dog-lick-ick. Click here. https://cbsloc.al/2oHQunO
See? It’s not that far-fetched.
And now a report about your child’s exposure to classroom pets as our school-year is in full swing. Click here. https://bit.ly/2Cl6Psq
Both stories linked above are cautionary tales—or is that tails? (Groan.) Every time I see an animal lick a human, I cringe a bit.
I’ll never end my mission to educate everyone about utilizing great hygiene. If you have school-age kids, make sure you discuss this with their teachers and principals. They MUST provide a safe environment for your offspring in school…especially when kids often touch their own faces and put fingers in their mouths.
Apparently, having animals in the classroom is the rage in schools at the moment.
In our enthusiasm to educate kids about animals, we forget they ARE ANIMALS. They don’t wash their hooves, claws, fins or paws with soap or hand sanitizer. They can’t brush their own teeth.
Pets can contaminate even the smallest open wound on human skin.
For that reason, I advocate washing hands as often as possible with soap and warm water (don’t over-do it as that can cause dryness) and at least use a hand sanitizer after touching ANY animal—even if they reside in your home and sleep with you. That’s another blog unto itself.
That hand sanitizer should NOT be one that is made mostly with ALCOHOL—which is TOXIC, FLAMMABLE and can cause hands to be dry; thus causing bacteria to get stuck in cracks on skin.
The brand to choose is ALCOHOL-FREE. It’s NON-TOXIC, NON-FLAMMABLE and named safeHands® for a reason. It ALSO kills 99.99% of germs; even with regular usage, as you get all the benefits of ALCOHOL without ANY health concerns. Click here. https://bit.ly/2Hek24m
After reading that explanation about the differences between ALCOHOL-BRIMMING hand sanitizers and safeHands®, a 100% ALCOHOL-FREE product, brings me to the point of this edition of Big Jay’s Big Blog.
We MUST always be aware of our dealings with humans AND animals when it comes to hand hygiene. I try to never take chances, as we know PEOPLE aren’t always the cleanest creatures on earth; and animals don’t care or know any better.
I can see the hate mail now…
Dear Mr. Big Jay,

Remember, don’t shoot the messenger. My sole role here is to educate and share stories that I see in the news that you may have missed—or witness myself.
Please feel free to send ME stories about what YOU spot during your busy life regarding hand hygiene issues. Perhaps I will use your idea for a future blog.I am HONORED that you read my regular rants and raves.
I’m passionate about how safeHands® brand 100% ALCOHOL-FREE hand sanitizer works, and IS a better choice than TOXIC, FLAMMABLE products containing mostly ALCOHOL on the marketplace.
Feel free to SHARE my blog with friends & family so they too are in the know.
