Distilled water is a poor conductor of electric current. Then why should we never touch electrical appliances with wet hands?

Expert Answer:

Mostly our hands are wet with tap water and not distilled water. Tap water has salts dissolved in it and it is a good conductor of electric current. So we should never touch electrical appliances with wet hands.
