Hand Washing

Instruct the donor to wash and dry his or her hands. Observe this step. Tell the donor not to wash or dry hands again until after the donor has provided and handed you a specimen. The donor may use soap to wash hands, but it must be a liquid. Solid or bar soap gives the donor a chance to conceal soap shavings under the fingernails and subsequently use them to attempt to adulterate the specimen.
