Struggle to convince your kids why they need to wash their hands?

Teacher Donna Gill Allen has the "grossest yet coolest experiment" to help teach kids about germs and the importance of washing your hands. And while it's very hard to look at, her experiment definitely got her school kids thinking about hygiene.

"I did this while teaching about germs and how they spread," she wrote.

"You use three pieces of bread. You let all the kids see you put a piece of bread in a baggy with a glove on hence 'controlled' then you wash your hands and put a piece of bread in a baggy for 'clean' last but definitely not least you pass a piece of bread around and let every kid in class touch it then you put it in a baggy and label it dirty."

"Watch how the bread changes over time due to germs. It is so cool and a great way to teach the importance of hand-washing." 

Of course like expected, the controlled version and clean version looked completely fine after a while. However the one touched by the members in class is enough to lose your appetite.

A very cool and disgusting way to teach your kids why it's important to wash your hands!
