Wash Your Hands for 20 Seconds. Here's a List of Songs to Help!

washing hands

Every expert says the best way to fight most illnesses including the flu and the Coronavirus is to wash your hands for a minimum of 20 seconds. Need help getting to 20 seconds in hand washing? Well you've probably heard to sing "Happy Birthday" twice or to slowly do your ABC's. But if that's getting boring, here's a whole list of songs with 20 second choruses to help keep you healthy! 

This Twitter user actually timed them out: 

Her list includes:

  • "Love On Top" by: Beyonce
  • "Landslide" by: Fleetwood Mac
  • "Raspberry Beret" by: Prince
  • "Jolene" by: Dolly Parton
  • "Africa" by: Toto
  • "Truth Hurts" by: Lizzo
  • "Come On Eileen" by Dexy's Midnight Runners

The only thing to remember is not to speed through the song...and then my problem is forgetting the lyrics. I may need to stick to Happy Birthday.
