You know how hand dryers are supposed to be cleaner...

posted by Sam -

Hand dryers are awesome for saving the planet and reducing paper towel waste; but maybe not so great for actual cleanliness.  

This is what grew on a petri dish after being placed under a hand dryer for THREE minutes. (Not sure if anyone dries their hands for three minutes...seems a little excessive.)

All the same it's super gross and I believe I'll be sticking with my wash and air dry method as I jet out of the public restroom.

This girl grew some fungus and told us something we all probably already knew but just didn’t like to think about it. • • • • • #nowthis #news? #petridish #gross #scientific #bye
