Start by having a towel next to you to dry your hands. Turn on the sink and wet your hands. Then place only few drops (2 or 3) of dish soap or a shot of foam soap on your hands. Else, use bar soap. The important thing is to have your hands wet so that the soap will spread over your hands and any other areas you are washing.
Next, you want to lather those hands, wrists, and lower arms. Lather for about 20 – 30 seconds. Just think a few thoughts and then you should be ready to give a rinse.
After rinsing, then use the towel. If using a throw away towel such as paper towels, I use those to do something really classy. I wipe down the top of the sink and faucet handles so they are dry for the next person.
