The World Health Organization recommends frequent hand washing as a key part of any COVID-19 coronavirus prevention strategy. "Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing; going to the bathroom; and before eating or preparing food," the CDC advises.
A common suggestion is to sing Happy Birthday twice, but Wash Your Lyrics makes this singing-to-yourself process more personal.
Input a song title and artist, hit "Generate" and let the website create a downloadable infographic that ties your tune into the recommended steps for washing your hands.
I tested the generator out with Bob Dylan's Desolation Row. My personal hand-washing infographic starts with "They're selling postcards of the hanging" and ends with "Cinderella, she seems so easy."

The generator automatically pulls lyrics from Genius, so the length of the snippets that go with each illustration can vary quite a bit. You should time your song for yourself to make sure you're hitting your 20 seconds. On the flip side, you don't want to be stuck for three minutes under the faucet, either.
