Think you’ve got your hand washing technique spot on? Now you can be sure, with the new hand washing demo from The Bella Moss Foundation!

Launched alongside our Clean Hands Challenge at this year’s BSAVA Congress – the largest small animal vet show in Europe – the simple three minute video is voiced-over by BMF founder Jill Moss and our trustee Chris Laurence.

It explains how basic hand hygiene is so important in stopping infections – and shows how bad cases can get in people and pets – before taking viewers through a simple, step-by-step demo of good washing technique.

Please check out our video on our YouTube channel now – and share with all your friends and colleagues!
