" Merely rub my own hands with it, detergent foams, exults…
The more complaisant it makes it, supple,
Soft, docile, the greater slobbers, the more

The Global Handwashing Corporation goes on to describe on their website, " handwashing may prevent the indication of a number of pathogens, it might be more effective than any solitary vaccine. Advertised on a vast enough level, handwashing with soap can be thought of as a " do-it-yourself” vaccine.
