Songs To Sing While Washing Your Hands

The CDC recommends washing your hands for at least 20 seconds — or the time it takes to sing “Happy Birthday” twice. However, when one song gets old, it’s time to switch it up!

Here are a few other songs to sing:

  • 1. “Landslide,” by Fleetwood Mac
  • 2. “Truth Hurts,” by Lizzo
  • 3. “Jolene,” by Dolly Parton
  • 4. “Somewhere Over the Rainbow,” from the Wizard of Oz
  • 5. “The Sound of Music,” from The Sound of Music
  • 6. “Hands Clean,” by Alanis Morisette
  • 7. “Karma Chameleon,” by Culture Club
  • 8. “Stayin’ Alive,” by The BeeGees (also a favorite song for performing CPR)
  • 9. “Livin’ On a Prayer,” by Bon Jovi
  • 10. “No Scrubs,” by TLC
  • 11. “Raspberry Beret,” by Prince
  • 12. “Love Shack” by The B-52’s

And my personal fav: The Golden Girls theme song!
