Working in a school/university/seminary puts you in contact with lots of people. Often, lots of sick people (for the sake of this post, let’s limit the definition of “sick” to a physical illness).
Everyone has their own secret (or not so secret) strategy for keeping healthy. Here’s the simplest: wash your hands. Often.
But getting people to actually wash their hands frequently and for the most beneficial period of time is not always easy. Let’s face it, it just isn’t fun. So, here’s a suggestion that worked with the kids (and even adults) that frequent our house. Install this.
We have the temperature sensitive model. Cold water = blue light; Warm/hot water = red light.
Very cool. You might even save on the electric bill since everyone inevitably keeps the main bathroom light off so that they can see the colors!
What fun! Can i come wash my hands at your house? Now you just need a cool gadget that will get people to actually use soap when they wash their hands! Although, when i took Micro we learned that it is not necessarily the soap that removes the germies, it is the friction of vigorously rubbing your hands – you could actually use jello and it would work (Yes, we did a full lab experiment to prove it!)The grandkids would love that!! We decided the proper amount of scrubbing was the time it took you to sing “Yankee Doodle”. Colored lights, jello, music …. what else could you ask for in a bathroom?
Ask and you shall receive:
That is so cool! I’m very disappointed that it’s not recommended for use outside the US.
