N/A I don't dry my hands!!! 2%

So I was drying my hands in the restroom and I realized I need two or more to dry my hands. I was curious on the rest of the world does.

For the automated dispensers, I need 3 dispensements. I have hands bigger than most NFL WRs & TEs.

3 sheets.

One for initial wetness.

Second for 75% of the remaining damp.

Third for the pockets of water still hiding.

No, 2-3. Some dispensers only give tiny pieces, so it can vary.

Second question, do you even bother with air driers when towels are not available?

Watched a youtube a while back that went in to great detail on how to use a single "standard" sheet so yes, I can dry my hands with one sheet.

But I am a monster who tends to not take the time. If I can grab a sheet without touching anything I'll use it. But either way I finish on my pants.

You can shake most of the water off before you get to the paper towel, so yeah it's very possible.

Yes make sure you use every bit of the paper, if you use the middle chances are you're letting the edges stay dry. It's not like you have to concentrate or anything just use one side of the paper, then move to the other side.

Yeah. I have the habit of washing my hands then rubbing excess water on my face and hair prior to using anything to dry the hands.

You watch any Mafia movie and they do the exact same thing. Do that and your practically a made man capeesh lol.

I don’t trust touching anything in a public restroom after washing my hands. I wipe on my shirt and move on.

2-3.

And I know they're better for the environment and so on but I really hate using air dryers. They're slow and take far too long to do a task that should take three seconds. Ugh.

One is enough. You're supposed to first vigorously shake your hands (around twenty times), people!

Yep. If you're using a paper towel, it's because something's broken.

It usually takes three for me to get my hands acceptably dry. I try to avoid hand dryers when possible, especially those Dyson ones. There's always puddles of water and who-knows-what-else collecting in the bottom of those dryers, so no thanks.
