Speaking of Dyson, has anyone else seen the new Dyson hand dryers in public restrooms? I don’t use public restrooms very often, but now that my daughter is recently potty trained, we’re visiting them all the time. Anyway, in the two restrooms we used last weekend, both had the new Dyson hand dryers. They’re certainly interesting and do work, but they scared the bejeezus out of my pre-schooler as they’re so loud. One restroom had paper towels as well, but the other had nothing else to dry hands so she ended up drying her hands on my jeans (being a mommy is such fun!)
