hi all
am looking for scientific evidence of 2 minutes hand wash, 1.5 sec hand wash , 1 min hand wash , 30 sec hand wash in a community setting. similarly what about hand washing in airplanes? what about hand washing where water is scarce ? how long is long enough and the scientific evidence. am kind of desperate here any inputs will be highly appreciated.
thank you

Hi!

We came to the conclusion with a brief literature review that the evidence for length of handwashing is inconclusive in community settings. This is mentioned in the intro of our paper, here: www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0196655316307933. We also found that within the cohort we studied (same paper), natural variation observed for length did not influence microbiological effectiveness.

We referenced:

N. Amin, A.J. Pickering, P.K. Ram, L. Unicomb, N. Najnin, N. Homaira, et al.
Microbiological evaluation of the efficacy of soapy water to clean hands: a randomized, non-inferiority field trial
Am J Trop Med Hyg, 91 (2014), pp. 415–423

J.C. Lucet, M.P. Rigaud, F. Mentre, N. Kassis, C. Deblangy, A. Andremont, et al.
Hand contamination before and after different hand hygiene techniques: a randomized clinical trial
J Hosp Infect, 50 (2002), pp. 276–280

J.L. Fuls, N.D. Rodgers, G.E. Fischler, J.M. Howard, M. Patel, P.L. Weidner, et al.
Alternative hand contamination technique to compare the activities of antimicrobial and nonantimicrobial soaps under different test conditions
Appl Environ Microbiol, 74 (2008), pp. 3739–3744

D.M. Conover, K.E. Gibson
A review of methods for the evaluation of handwashing efficacy
Food Control, 63 (2016), pp. 53–64

Maybe that information is also helpful along with the previously mentioned documents.
