“Ok guys… ready to have your mind blown?!
This here, Is what grew in a Petri dish after just a few days. I stuck the open plate in an enclosed hand dryer of a public bathroom for a total of 3 minutes. Yes, 3 only. DO NOT EVER dry your hands in those things again. This is the several strains of possible pathogenic fungi and bacteria that you’re swirling around your hands, and you think you’re walking out with clean hands. You’re welcome. This post is simply for awareness, not to instill fear”
In a comment, Ward added:
“This was MY OWN experiment. You have to know a little bit about microbiology and the agar that is in the Petri dish to start this all off. Nothing false here. This is literally what grows once incubated. But it’s the very contaminants that you’re drying your hands with but you cannot see with the naked eye until it’s incubated.”
