Should hands be washed with hot or cold water?
Everyone knows that harmful habits such as smoking, alcohol and poor nutrition have a negative effect on the body.
However, we have habits that are part of our daily lives and are harmful to our health.
Scientists have found that it is better to wash your hands with hot or cold water, reports quoting yenicag.az. As a result of various studies, it has been proved that the effect of hot and cold water on killing germs and cleaning the bacteria in our hands is the same.
That is, the temperature of the water does not play a role in cleaning the bacteria. However, it has been proven that washing hands with cold water is more beneficial. The popular belief that hot water kills bacteria is actually wrong.
Washing your hands with cold water is a better option. Because when you wash your hands with warm water, the skin softens and the skin becomes more sensitive to germs.
