Women-owned design team builds a business by solving a problem

Hand washing is one of the most effective ways to stop the spread of diarrheal and respiratory illnesses. In fact, researchers say a routine scrub with soap and water could prevent 1 million deaths each year.

But according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, few follow through with the proper protocol — mainly the soap.

Clean hands are especially important for young children, who are more susceptible to illnesses. Plus, research shows routine hand washing can even advance their cognitive, communicative and motor development.

All of these statistics gave Parsons industrial design students Shubham Issar and Amanat Anand an idea: to make hand hygiene more accessible and enticing for little ones.

2:41- There is no right by this moron. He is only here to bitch and moan. He does it daily. We all know what a pathetic loser he is. It's best to let him continue to be stupid. Stupid is as stupid does. I heard that somewhere.

Want to teach kids to wash their hands? Just wait until they have a cold or flu, and tell them they got sick because they DIDN'T wash their hands. Do that every time they get sick, and they will associate illness with lack of hand washing. Now that's a lesson they won't forget.
