Hand dryers are commonly used in public restrooms throughout the United States. They are found in various settings, including restaurants, airports, office buildings, schools, and other public places. Hand dryers are so popular in the US because of their environmental impact. Hand dryers do not create waste, unlike paper towels, which require trees to be cut down and often end up in landfills. This makes them a more sustainable option for businesses and organizations. Another reason for the popularity of hand dryers in the US is their convenience. They are easy to use and do not require extra effort on the user's part other than placing their hands under the dryer. This makes them a popular choice for high-traffic areas where efficiency is important. Some studies have also shown that hand dryers can be more hygienic than paper towels, as they do not require users to touch anything other than the dryer itself. This can help reduce the spread of germs and bacteria in public restrooms. Overall, hand dryers are common in public restrooms across the United States and are appreciated for their convenience, sustainability, and potential hygiene benefits.

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on hand dryers in the US was significant. One of the main concerns during the pandemic was the potential virus transmission through contact with contaminated surfaces, including hand dryers. As a result, many people were reluctant to use hand dryers in public restrooms.

Post-COVID-19, many people and organizations were reconsidering their use in public restrooms after studies found that hand dryers do not pose a significant risk of spreading the virus as long as they are used properly and maintained and cleaned regularly.
