Mr. Rewrite's advice: Always avoid hand washing

During a freelance editing gig, Mr. Rewrite tried mightily to avoid addressing whether hand washing, hand-washing or handwashing is what he hopes Rewrite Jr. does before leaving the bathroom. But the project involved food safety, so finally Mr. Rewrite had to crack open his reference books.

To his surprise and relief, the AP Stylebook has an entry calling for hand-washing. God bless the world's oldest and largest newsgathering organization!

Here's a video that Mr. Rewrite hopes scares his students into washing their hands several hundred times a day -- with soap.
