Helping you and your loved ones stay safe | Childs Farm

At Childs Farm we know that the way you wash your hands is SO important, especially when it comes to drying your hands and making sure you moisturise afterwards.

Which is why we put together a little guide to help you and your loved ones stay safe:


When should you wash your hands? 

⚽  After breaks & sports activities
🍽️  Before cooking & eating
🚸  On arrival at any childcare setting
🚾  After using the toilet
🤧  After coughing or sneezing
🏡 When you arrive and before you leave home


How should you wash your hands?

✔️  Rub palms together
✔️  Rub back of hands and in-between fingers
✔️  Interlace fingers and wiggle them
✔️  Rub back of fingers with palm of hand
✔️  Grab each thumb and rub up and down
✔️  Make fist and rub opposite palm
✔️  Rinse thoroughly
✔️  Dry hands completely
✔️  Apply moisturiser


Using what?

Warm water and soap!
Did you know that tea tree oil has natural antibacterial and antiviral properties?

Our Childs Farm Kids' Moisturiser with Grapefruit & Tea Tree is the perfect moisturiser to follow handwashing. This award-winner can be used all over the body, face and hands, and will be loved by everyone, regardless of age! 


For how long?

Officially: 20 seconds, however if you're anything like us you don't have a timer next to the sink.

This is where a good song can help, classic suggestions are singing Humpty Dumpty, or happy birthday twice. We're more in favour of making up your own song, as that's way more fun.


Useful facts

Germs can survive up to three hours on the skin if they're not washed off. They find their way onto other people when we touch hands, or surfaces they've touched.

They also find their way into our bodies if we put our fingers in our mouths, eat something with our hands, or have even the tiniest of cracks in our skin.

BUT hand washing with soap is the most effective way to protect yourself and your loved ones.
