Hand Washing 101: Hilariously Informative Coronavirus PSA From Food Network Star

Written by Wes Walker on March 17, 2020

Alton Brown is what Bill Nye only wishes he could have been.

Alton Brown, for anyone familiar with his role on the Food Network, is a very different sort of food celebrity.

He’s the guy who loves to geek out on the Science that makes recipes work. He can explain — in detail — why this or that enzyme or acid in one ingredient will make a recipe fly or fail miserably.

That’s just who he is.

He’s also got a knack for making even the most pedestrian topics ridiculously funny.

When you put those together, you’ve got a recipe for a WuFlu Coronavirus Handwashing PSA that people will actually WANT to watch.

He covers the science for why soap is far more suited to the task than all the antibacterial goop customers have been fighting over in pharmacies.

Just some good-old-fashioned soap… and some best practices, and you’ll be doing a great job of helping protect yourself from picking up — well, whatever, nastiness might be coming your way.
