None of this matters if you’re that guy who puts soap on your hands, then immediately puts them under running water (washing off the soap) and rubs for like 5 seconds and calls it good. Wet hands, apply soap, use GOOD FRICTION (that’s what matters most) for *at least* 15 seconds being sure to get wrists and under rings, then rinse. Thanks for coming to my TED talk.
