Nothing else in a bathroom stall is designed to prevent bacteria from sticking to it. When we flush the toilet, germs get spread all around the stall. They latch onto the walls, the door handle, the toilet paper dispenser, and, of course, the actual toilet paper. Unfortunately, perfect for collecting bacteria is toilet paper’s surface. Germs settle right into the paper. We make it awfully easy for these nasty germs to get into our bodies because we use the toilet paper it to blow our noses or wipe our faces.
Every surface of a public restroom is festering with bacteria, also including the sink and the hand dryers. Responsible for distributing high amounts of bacteria around a restroom, according to a study published in the Journal of Applied Microbiology are largely electric hand dryers.
