I did an experiment to see how much bacter is collected when you dry your 
hands with a hot air dryer verses paper towel after using the restroom. 
Well then I put our finger in the agar to be able to see the bacteria from 
the experiment. Not only did i get bacteria but i aslo got some molds. How 
did the molds get there? WHat are molds? sincerely,preethi
