Antibacterial soap has not proven to actually kill any more germs than regular soap and can irritate sensitive skin. So, don't be too concerned with they type of soap you use, focus more on the way you wash your hands and the frequency you wash throughout the day. You should wash your hands for around 1 full minute with warm, soapy water throughout the day- before contact with food, after contact with the public, and of course after you use the restrooms. </li></ul>

  18. 18. Step 4 <ul><li>Look after the elderly. If you have a Grandparent, elderly neighbor or friend, check on them often and try to remind them to wash their hands and keep their living area as free from germs as possible (remember to be tactful to keep their pride in tact). </li></ul>
  19. 19. Step 5 <ul><li>Finally, if you do get sick, do not panic. If you do come down with the swine flu, make sure to see your doctor first. Then, take your vitamins, drink lots of water, and get lots of rest. This will make a difference in your recovery. </li></ul>
  20. 20. How to Avoid Contraction of the Swine Flu: <ul><li>Step 1 Mexicans Wearing Mask for Protection of the Deadly Virus beaware of the symptoms of the Swine Influenza. Knowing the Symptoms ahead of time can prevent totality of the disease in taking over your body.

  24. 24. Step 3 <ul><li>Sanitizing your hands Frequently (especially after shaking hands) is very important* Wash hands vigorously and consistently. When coughing or sneezing, be adamant in covering your nose and mouth (not with hands but with arms). </li></ul>
