WISCONSIN — With the spread of the coronavirus, the number one tip the CDC has given is washing your hands. Now, they're taking it a step further by showing you how.

One question many people ask about washing your hands include which soap is better? Bar soap or liquid?

Because of this question, and similar ones, the CDC shared a video on Facebook Wednesday explaining how to wash your hands properly.

The video states that washing your hands with cold water is just as effective as warm. Additionally, they say that soap does not have to be antibacterial to work. Anything will do.

If you don't have soap and water, the CDC says using hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol will work just fine.

This video comes just a few hours after Wisconsin health officials announced that there are now six pending cases of the coronavirus in Wisconsin.
