Hand washing timer / Remind the time it takes to wash your hands

Hand washing timer
Hand washing timer

When going out during the epidemic, hands will come into contact with many public facilities. The possibility of exposure to viruses and bacteria is very high. If your cleaning time is less than 30 seconds, you can't clean bacteria or viruses, which may lead to serious consequences. But when people wash their hands, people don't deliberately count the time. Especially children.
This product is equipped with an induction camera, which automatically senses when people wash their hands and starts to help people calculate the washing time. People can judge whether there is enough time to wash their hands according to the displayed animation.
