Paper Towels for Optimum Hand Hygiene

Did you know that a Mayo Clinic study found that drying your hands with disposable paper towels intended for a single use is the best method of hand drying in terms of hand hygiene? As a matter of fact, it's the preferred method in hospital and clinical health care settings.  Hot air and jet air dryers actually contaminate the space around the dryer by pushing and spreading out bacteria around it. So limit the spread of infectious disease in your work place by adequate hand washing followed by thorough drying with a disposable paper towel.
