Magic Tricks in the Bathroom

I try to use hand dryers instead of paper towel in public restrooms. I don't like them, but let's face it, saving the world's not easy. We all have to do our part to try to keep down the volume of paper trash pouring into landfills. Most hand dryers are useless, breathing tepid air onto your hands and doing nothing to actually dry them. The exception is the Dyson Airblade hand dryer. If you're not familiar, you stick your hands into it and slowly remove them, and the air blasts the water off your hands. Using one is like a combination between a magic trick and a game of Operation since you don't want your hands to actually come into contact with the hand dryer. The posture of dipping your hands in and slowly removing them makes you feel as though you're onstage at some children's museum performing magic tricks.

  1. You should also check out the Mitsubishi Jet Towel. It is the model that Dyson copied to make their Airblade. Search Mitsubishi Jet Towel in google and you'll find it.
    I don't have a website, so I just put the link in my coment name. It's really cool too. It's about time that we saw some progress in hand dryers!
