Sticker relating to hygiene and cleanliness, London, England, c. 1960-1970

The 'Germs get through toilet paper' message, with a small red devil bursting through the toilet paper, highlighted the disease-spreading potential of dirty hands. These can carry potentially harmful bacteria such as salmonella and E. coli that cause serious health problems. The adhesive sticker was for display in staff toilets to remind workers to wash hands. It was produced by the Central Council for Health Education between 1960 and 1970.
