Hot air hand dryers in public and communal toilets have generally remained unchanged, with a button to start, or sometimes auto-sensor, and a nozzle.
This changed recently when James Dyson developed the slot based dryer which effectively vapourises the water on your hands in a fast moving stream of air.
The new dryers although nothing like as swift as claimed, are undoubtably more effective at drying hands.
However, in these hot sweaty days, I have found a significant flaw in their design!
With the old blowers, I could wash my hands, and wash my face – and the nossle could usually be rotated to point upwards and blow dry my face.
I can’t fit my face inside the new Dyson hand dryers.
This is a problem that needs urgent attention!
