Can I wash my hands with this water?

It is recommended bottled water or water boiled for 5 minutes and cooled should be used for hand washing. When this is not practical, it is recommended that if tap water must be used to wash and rinse it should be followed up with the use of a hand sanitizer. Using extra precautions with hand washing ensures that hands are clean for eating.
