Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) — With flu season seeming to come early this year, the Mayo Clinic has a suggestion tonight in relation to washing your hands.
The clinic is saying that paper towels remove germs better than air blowers.
Researchers say paper towels get hands drier, and air blowers can spread germs up to six feet away.
The Mayo Clinic suggests you also use a paper towel to turn off the faucet and open the door when leaving a public restroom.
