    Default Unsanitary Hand Dryers In Restrooms


    E-Mail sent to me and I am just passing the info on so please don't shoot the messenger..Snopes.Com said this is undetermined at this time but hey it makes sense to me..


    Everyone in the cleaning industry has always been told that hand dryers in restrooms are not sanitary, they spread germs and bacteria around. I always thought that this just came from the paper companies because they are loosing sales to the hand dryers.

    A couple of years ago, I was working with a rep, and I noticed that after he washed his hands and noticed that there were no paper towels, only a hand dryer he left the restroom with wet hands. I asked him about it. He said that hand dryers blow a lot of germs and bacteria around. He also told me to take a look under the hand dryer next time I was in a restroom. There is a filter underneath the hand dryer that is supposed to be cleaned on a weekly basis. I looked at one and it looked like it hadn't been cleaned in years. It had layers and layers of caked on gunk (disgusting). Since then I will not use hand dryers in restrooms. Now this is where the story gets really interesting.

    The schools and universities that have had the H1N1 (swine flu) outbreak this year are being told by the health department that they have to take out all of their hand dryers and replace them with towel dispensers because the hand dryers are spreading disease. Please pass this along so everyone knows not to use hand dryers.


    Which one are you gonna use for now on? I will use the paper.

    Nasty! Reminds me of that dude from 'jack@ss', the guy goes into a plumbing fixture store sits on a toilet on display, reads a newspaper and drops a log right in the middle of the showroom floor.

    While on Potty Humor,

    A scabby truck driver passed the Maitre D at a high class eating establishment and interrupted him as he was seating a fairly wealthy looking well dressed couple. He asked,
    "HEY DUDE, Where is the Crapper?" The Maitre D responded politely and elegantly in a calm tone. "In the back of the restaurant turn to your left down the hall, you will see a door with a sign that says GENTLEMEN, go through that door even though you are not one"
