What are the best interventions for changing behaviour related to handwashing?

We have conducted a barrier analysis and found that (perhaps unsurprisingly) soap availability (mostly due to the cost), having a suitable location to wash hands and being able to remember, as being the most important determinants for hand washing with soap. We are looking for some concrete experiences to draw from when developing interventions to increase hand washing with soap at the 5 critical times. Thanks in advance.
