The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has posted a bunch of tips on how to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. One of the most basic ways to prevent the spread of any illness is to be sure that you are washing your hands properly. The popular hand-washing tip from the CDC is to "wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing." They say that if you need help timing out the 20 seconds, you should "hum the “Happy Birthday” song from beginning to end twice."

Now, don't get me wrong, I have no problem with the "Happy Birthday" song but singing that over and over again when you're washing your hands can get pretty old, pretty quick. So, here are some other song choices and choruses you can sing along to while washing your hands for the recommended length of 20 seconds.

    Dierks Bentley- "Drunk On A Plane"

    Here's another song that you can sing along to when you're washing your hands. Of course, you do run the risk of it being stuck in your head all day...you know... "Buyin' drinks for everybody
    But the pilot, it's a party
    Got this 737 rocking like a G6..."

    Morgan Wallen-"Whiskey Glasses"

    I had to throw in one of my personal favorites.

    "Line 'em up
    Line 'em up
    Line 'em up
    Line 'em up
    Knock 'em back
    Knock 'em back
    Knock 'em back
    Knock 'em back
    Fill 'em up
    Fill 'em up
    Fill 'em up
    Fill 'em up
    'Cause if she ain't ever coming back
    Line 'em up
    Line 'em up
    Line 'em up
    Line 'em up
    Knock 'em back
    Knock 'em back
    Knock 'em back
    Knock 'em back
    Fill 'em up
    Fill 'em up
    Fill 'em up
    Fill 'em up"...should get those hands very clean.

    LoCash-"I Love This Life"

    Your hands will be good and clean if you sing along to the chorus of "I Love This Life" by LoCash. Also, as an added benefit, you'll be able to sing along at their show at the Michigan Theatre.

    Toby Keith-"I Love This Bar"

    Another fun song to sing along to when you're washing your hands, is "I Love This Bar" by Toby Keith. The chorus is pretty long, too, so your hands will be plenty clean.
