Shake & Fold
Recently I talked about my handwashing process. This is a process I’ve been working on for years, but I’m always open to suggestion. Â Well, in the comments on that entry, Brian linked to a TED talk on the subject that has me reevaluating again.
Here’s the video.
Shake and fold. Simple, right? I figured I might as well give it a try. The first few times didn’t go so well, frankly. The tricky part is getting the right amount of paper towel. The dispenser at work is a roll-your-own, so it has taken me a few tries, but I think I’m getting it. Â It does work, it’s just taking some getting used to. I like using less than half the paper toweling I used to.
The worst part? The shaking. I’m trying to figure out how to shake the excess water off my hands without flinging it all over. Â I’ve been working on more of a “flinging” method, and I’ve had some success.
Give it a try, see how you like it.
