Improve workplace hygiene
with paper hand towels

Learn why single-use paper hand towels are the most effective,
and most hygienic, hand-drying solution.1

Why are jet air dryers 
less hygienic than paper
hand towels?

Dirtier to the touch

Jet-air dryers can increase
germs on fingers up to 42%

Your hands may actually be more contaminated
than before you washed them.

Dirtier surfaces

Jet-air dryer surfaces
can harbour more bacteria

Jet-air dryers can have up to 1,000 times more bacteria on
their surface compared to paper towel dispensers.

Dirtier environments

Jet-air dryers
disperse water droplets

When drying your hands with a jet-air dryer, water droplets that could contain bacteria and germs are blown into the air, travelling as far as 2 metres and lingering in the air for up to 15 minutes.

Now ask yourself:

Are jet-air dryers blowing
your good hygiene practices?

90% of people prefer paper towels over jet-air dryers in the washroom

Hygiene adherence would possibly decrease if paper towels are not available in washroom.

Paper towels can
reduce bacteria on hands

Drying hands with a clean paper hand towel can remove up to 77% of the bacteria that remain after washing.

Paper towels physically remove bacteria

The rubbing process of paper hand towels physically removes bacteria along with moisture.2

hand-drying method of WHO

The World Health Organisation (WHO) recommends that workers “dry hands thoroughly using single-use towels.3
