Is it too much to ask to have hand-dryers that do the job?

Have your say

I’m puzzled by hand-dryers in public loos. They either seem to be nowhere near powerful enough or far too powerful and there is no middle ground.

Some have all the force of a gnat breaking wind and are frankly useless. So you wave your hands about under their pathetic mild breeze and end up ageing visibly before giving up and wiping the excess water on your trousers.

But other dryers, like the Dyson one, sound like a jet plane taking off and scare young children so much that they refuse to use them – leading to a wipe on the trousers as the only solution again.

We’ve put a man on the moon. Is it too much to ask to have hand-dryers that do the job effectively and without fuss?
