Question

Q) Why should you not touch electrical appliances with wet hands?

A) This is because when we wash our hands with tap water which contains a lot of salt and ions this gets transmitted to our hands . When we touch the electrical appliances with wet hands ,the electric current passes from the appliance till our hands due to which we may get electric shock.

Could you please check my answer. Do give your inputs.

Small amounts of mineral salts present naturally in water are beneficial for human health. However, these salts make water conducting. So, we should never handle electrical appliances with wet hands or while standing on a wet floor.
