Hi there - I am just wondering what kind of hand dryers people have in their offices? It would be great to know!

Hey Shredder - This is true - paper towels are a lot quicker at doing the job AND they reduce bacteria on your hands, in comparison to warm air dryers, which cause the bacteria on your hands to double... quite scary. They also spread contamination around the room. I am just intrigued - as a lot of places have both towels and air dryers - as to what people prefer to use? And how aware are people of hygiene issues - do people care? Call me a geek, but I am just doing some personal research...Are paper towels not both convenient and hygienic ?
Thanks Mike! Interesting.I would say convenience first, and hygiene a close second.
Hi Neil - This is very true; the water has to go somewhere... I am not researching for anything in particular to be honest. Tork, the company I work with, is a supplier of wiping and hygiene products. I want to chat to people on my favourite forums to find out what their opinions are to distinguish how people feel about different dryers. I suspect this research will be of use for a specific cause, but at the moment it's really out of interest. For me personally, hygiene has the most impact on my preference for paper towels, so interesting to hear that some would be persuaded more so by convenience.I find the hand dryers very unhygenic, they often make more of a mess than if you used a paper towel.
Are you researching for something in particular?
I admit I hand't thought of the environmental aspects.well Im for paper towels ... they can be recycled
