Bathroom Hand Dryers

EXAMPLES Collected via e-mail, October 2009 Bathroom Hand Dryers..Interesting Info 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 flue) 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.

Researchers coated subjects’ hands with Lactobacillus, a harmless bacteria that you don’t typically come across in a public bathroom. The idea was to mimic hands that hadn’t been washed properly. After drying hands, researchers went in and conducted 120 air-sampling tests. They found that Lactobacillus counts in the air were 4½ times higher near high-powered jet dryers than around warm-air dryers. And bacteria counts were 27 times higher near warm-air dryers than when subjects used paper towels.

This e-mailed alert began circulating in October 2009. While its central claim that forced air hand dryers spread disease is in dispute, we could find no substantiation for its ancillary assertion that schools and universities where there have been outbreaks of swine flu have been ordered by their local health departments to replace these machines with paper towel dispensers. Try as we might, we haven’t been able to find any confirmatory information about such institutes of learning being told by anyone (health department or otherwise) to remove their forced-air hand dryers.

Previous research has looked more closely at the amount of bacteria left on the hands of people using hand dryers versus paper towels, and found that one of the biggest keys to reducing bacteria was getting hands as dry as possible. A 2011 study published in the Journal of Applied Microbiology found that paper towels consistently out-performed hand dryers. For that study, subjects handled chicken and then washed their hands, in order to replicate a common scenario.
