Soaps and Hand Sanitizers Help Prevent H1N1, a.k.a. Swine Flu
Since the H1N1 pandemic has been in the news and affected many communities, the risks of poor personal hygiene have been made clear.

"As infections evolve, common sense really comes into play," says Soap and Detergent Association Head of Communications. "It goes back to common sense hygiene practices: cleaning hands with soap and water. It′s simple, safe, effective and inexpensive. And when you′re out and about and soap and water are not available, portable products like sanitizing hand wipes are useful."
He urges cleaners to stay on top of what′s going on in local communities. Listen to local health officials and credible organizations like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and follow suggestions on how to prevent the spread of infection − whether through cleaning or developing a proper hand washing program for building occupants. According to them clean hands save lives. Disease prevention is in our hands − literally!

Soap gets its name from the mythological Mount Sapo. Fat and wood ash from animal sacrifices there washed into the Tiber River, creating a rudimentary cleaning agent that aided women doing their washing.
