Handwashing to the Oldies: Amazing Grace

Background: If you’re immunocompromised or hanging out with someone who is, you’ll be wanting to wash your hands for a full 20 seconds fairly often. You can time this by singing “Happy Birthday to You” twice, but that can get old fast…

Ok, you should probably test this one yourself, as this classic hymn can be sung to a wide variety of tempos. However, at the tempo I naturally fall into, I hit the 20-second mark after “now am found”:

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found,

Needless to say, I encourage you to continue to sing even as you start to rinse:
Was blind, but now I see.

Everyone can use a little Amazing Grace!
