When it Comes to Hygiene, Dryers Really Blow.
They're not clean. they breed bacteria. They spray bacteria all over you! Practice Safe Drying.
Air Dryers Blow... up to 42% more bacteria onto your fingertips!
They're not clean. They breed bacteria. They spray bacteria all over you! Practice Safe Drying.
Jet air dryers increase the bacteria count on fingertips by up to 42%. And hot air dryers increase germs by up to 194%. Both machine types harbor bacteria so what’s the point of washing your hands if you could leave the restroom with germs that you didn’t have when you came in?
These dryers should be cleaned and disinfected regularly. But they usually aren’t. One study found coliform bacteria on 52% of the jet air dryers tested - and on 0% of paper towel dispensers.
What's more, 1 in 8 of the floors below jet air dryers had staphylococcal counts >10 million (per 100 cm2).
On the other hand, drying with a paper towel actually decreases germs by up to 77%. Touchless towel dispensers really are touchless, with very few germs found on their surfaces. And friction effectively erases germs on hands. Now that’s practicing safe drying.
The cost difference is tiny. In fact, the annual cost in use of a paper towel system vs. a leading jet dryer is just a 3% difference – less than $20 a year – with no charge for the better hygiene and user satisfaction that come with it.
The Mayo Clinic determined that Air Dryers cause cross contamination, deeming them unsuitable for hospitals and clinics, where hygiene is paramount. Isn’t hygiene just as important to you?
