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!

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.
It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.
Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
