"The overall fact of how important hand hygiene has become nowadays is practically mind boggling. The main objective of this experiment was that to see how well different forms of cleansers would affect t the overall mold growth on bread, those cleansers being foam, liquid, wipe, as well as hand washing. So, the real question would be that of which hand cleanser can kill the most bacteria? The idea would be that the bread with the least amount of mold would give the answer to that if the cleanser did well it killed more so it led to less growth of mold. This was experiment was done by firstly cutting out the bread with cookie cutters to fit petri dishes. Then there was applying one cleanser on hands, then holding the bread for a set time and putting them in the petri dish once done to wait and see mold growth. This was tested on preservative bread and as well as whole bakery bread, though it was put in incubators to help speed up the process, although due to small timeframe and small errors possibly made the experiment was inconclusive as none of the mold had grown. The key idea of this experiment was that to find out which cleanser would be the best to the tell others to use for the best effectiveness. For example, telling schools which cleanser to recommend using. "
