Guinness World Record Set for Sanitizing!

UNDATED (WKOW) -- The best offense is always a good defense.

Prior to the Philadelphia Union versus LA Galaxy soccer match on October 7, thousands of fans set a new Guinness World Record for simultaneously sanitizing their hands.

To get the record, fans put a small amount of the sanitizer on their hands. Then people simultaneously rubbed their hands together for 60 seconds before an on-site Guinness representative declared the new record officially established. It was in celebration of the upcoming Global Handwashing Day, an annual event that coincides with flu season.
