The researchers argue it is more important to ensure workers thoroughly wash their hands, no matter at what temperature, before and after preparing food and using restrooms.
"Water works as a physical cleanser and washes the organisms and microbes off the hands", said Dr. Raymond Pontzer, director of infection prevention for UPMC in Pittsburgh, who was not involved in the study.

"Whether you choose the bar of soap, whether you use a plain soap or whether you use an antimicrobial soap, the most important thing is to wash your hands", says Professor Schaffner.

Cool water removes the same amount of harmful bacteria as hot, according to small study on handwashing.
