The hand dryers which we use in public bathrooms can spread more bacteria than paper towels!
Many people are using the hand dryers because they think they will be “away” from the bacteria on their hands, but actually they are closer. If you have already heard about the high-velocity hand dryers then you must know that they are very dangerous because they have about six times more bacteria around them!
ABOUT THE STUDY
The study that proved this has test dispersal of 3 different hand-washing methods in order to find out which one is the best for usage. Paper towels, conventional warm-air dryers and jet dryers were all included. Researchers have discovered that high-velocity can spread 65 times more viral plaque-forming units than the warm-air dryers!
The participants were asked to wear gloves and wash their hands in air-controlled rooms in which were installed different types of hand dryers and paper-towel dispensers. The researchers wanted to discover which type of hand dryers can disperse the greatest quantity of viruses.
Stop using public restrooms as much as possible to protect yourself from viruses. Wash your hands thoroughly every time you go to the toilet because in that way you can prevent bacteria dispersal.
