A WOMAN conducted her own science experiment using a public bathroom hand dryer — and it might make you think twice about using them.
Nichole Ward shared a stomach-churning picture of a Petri dish on Facebook, which she claims to have held under a Dyson Airblade for three minutes and left to “incubate” for 48 hours, reports The Sun.
She wrote: “OK guys … ready to have your mind blown?!”
“This here, Is what grew in a Petri dish after just a few days,” she says, showing an image of the Petri dish with all sorts of stomach-churning funk inside.
“I stuck the open plate in an enclosed hand dryer of a public bathroom for a total of three minutes. Yes 3 only. DO NOT EVER dry your hands in those things again.
“This is the several strains of possible pathogenic fungi and bacteria that you’re swirling around your hands, and you think you’re walking out with clean hands. You’re welcome. ”
It’s unclear what sort of scientific background Nichole, from California, has — if any — to make her assessment.
Dyson said it was “surprised” by the results, noting that it was “unclear on the methodology employed”…
