If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

I am assuming because the top of the hand showed more dramatic changes.  Afterall, most people mainly rub their hands together to wash them so the palms would probably be the first part to get cleaner with any friction.  Just conjecturing.
While your conjecture might be correct, it shows how misleading it is.  Instead of showing the part that matters, they show the part with the bigger difference, which has far less relevance to germ-spreading.  I have a degree in research, and this (i.e., twisting things to make them appear relevant) is a huge beef I have with the research community.

Also they're showing "rinse & shake." How about "rinse and wipe with a paper towel?"

Oyyyyyy.  I don't want to be mefurash and make a chilul Hashem here.  Extrapolate from your question why we have an issue.

For research, I totally agree that this is very tainted "data".  For trying to control the virus, maybe we should keep our degree knowledge to ourselves.

Here's an interesting question: if they can show the same thing legitimately, why not do so?  Seeing such misleading images may make some question long-held beliefs on hand-washing, hardly the time for that.

This was done way before Covid-19 came around.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Yes. It was irrelevant then, and unhelpful now.

Well, this is all a PR stunt. Viruses donít survive long on surfaces, and it does nothing to address the possibility of an infected passenger infecting others.
