    Sing happy birthday song twice to Washing your hands and that's the time recommended. Also if you stamp your hand and at the end of the day the stamp is still there, you aren't washing your hand enough

    The scars you can't see are the hardest to heal.

    We got told to wash our hands to 'wagon wheel' 😂 only in Scotland 😂😂
    ' So I put a bullet where I shouda put a helmet, and I crash my car cause I wanna get carried away, that's why I'm standing on the overpass screaming at myself 'hey, I wanna get better''

    I am adjusting to it. I used to only wash my hands fast and when I needed it because it made my eczema return. I don't know the birthday song lol, so I just count 20 seconds

    It's just happy birthday to you song? One you sing when giving a birthday cake to someone

    Here are some alternatives to 'happy birthday'

    Party in the USA, Miley Cyrus:
    So I put my hands up
    They're playing my song,
    And the butterflies fly away
    Noddin' my head like, yeah
    Movin' my hips like, yeah
    I got my hands up,
    They're playin' my song
    You know I'm gonna be okay
    Yeah, it's a party in the USA
    Yeah it's a party in the USA

    Oops I did it again, Britney Spears:
    Oops, I did it again
    I played with your heart, got lost in the game
    Oh baby, baby
    Oops, you think I'm in love
    That I'm sent from above
    I'm not that innocent

    Wannabe, Spice Girls:
    If you wanna be my lover, you gotta get with my friends
    (Gotta get with my friends)
    Make it last forever, friendship never ends
    If you wanna be my lover, you have got to give
    (You've got to give)
    Taking is too easy, but that's the way it is

    Bohemian rhapsody
    I see a little silhouetto of a man
    Scaramouche, Scaramouche, will you do the Fandango?
    Thunderbolt and lightning
    Very, very frightening me
    Galileo Galileo
    Galileo Galileo
    Galileo Figaro
    Magnifico
    I'm just a poor boy, nobody loves me
    He's just a poor boy from a poor family

    Old town road
    I got the horses in the back
    Horse tack is attached
    Hat is matte black
    Got the boots that's black to match
    Ridin' on a horse, ha
    You can whip your Porsche
    I been in the valley
    You ain't been up off that porch, now
    Can't nobody tell me nothin'
    You can't tell me nothin'

    Fresh prince of Bel-Air
    In west Philadelphia born and raised
    On the playground was where I spent most of my days
    Chillin' out maxin' relaxin' all cool
    And all shooting some b-ball outside of the school
    When a couple of guys who were up to no good
    Started making trouble in my neighborhood
    I got in one little fight and my mom got scared
    She said, "You're movin' with your auntie and uncle in Bel-Air"
    but idk tho

    There's a part of me I can't get back.  A little girl grew up too fast. All it took was once. I'll never be the same.

    Made up my own version of a well known tik-tok for hand washing  (with soap or gel if you take away the last three lines.) And no I don't really have covid-19.

    Aye!
    Oh no I got covid-19
    Walking round through the school
    Spreading all the droplets
    Everyone like what you got
    I'm like covid-19
    You so ill
    I'mma call 111
    Go away and self isolate
    Wash your hands
    Scrub em!
    Wash em!
    Wash your hands you detty pig!

    As always, popular culture seems to predict the need for these things in advance. Alan Partridge has mastered how to wash your hands on public transport (Full clip is also funny):

    @Ed_, he totally has that whole thing down without using his hands to open doors or do anything :lol:
    I just want you to know that I honor what you’re going through right now. I am here for you.
