Hand Jive

Okay, here’s another favorite thing: The Xlerator.

I really like it.

A trip to the ladies’ room used to be non-eventful. Well, maybe it was or wasn’t…but, ahem, whatever. When it came to drying my hands, I always avoided the slow, boring hand dryer and went straight for the paper towels. Or the back of my pants.

My first Xlerator experience? I almost remember it to the day. The place? The USS Yorktown at Patriots Point. On a World War II-era Navy behemoth. A coworker came from the bathroom and exclaimed, “You have got to try the hand dryer in there!” Well, okay then. I did. Now when I see one I get giddy.

There’s competition. The Blade. But sticking my hands down into something? No thank you.

At about $400.00 a pop, I think how an Xlerator would nicely adorn our master bathroom wall…

Have a few minutes? Listen to an NPR interview with Denis Gagnon of Excel Hand Dryer, Inc.
