In the washroom there's a blow-dryer for your hands, which claims to be a protection against disease. The instructions are in French as well as English, it's made in Canada. Rennie washes her hands and dries them under the blow dryer. She's all in favour of protection against disease.
Perfumed air, gleaming tiled floor and walls, one wall of spotless mirrors, stainless steel shiny taps over pristine sinks, hot air hand dryer, self-flush toilets, perfumed soap dispenser, piped music.
Cracked mirror, splattered mirror, chipped mirror, swampy tiled floor, slippery floor, discoloured floor, paper towel dispenser empty, toilet roll dispenser almost empty, low toilets, smell of bleach and urea, broken door bolt, missing door bolt, hold door closed with foot, stall doors have chipped grey paint, blocked up toilet, unflushed toilet, door hanging loose on hinges, no soap in dispenser, congealed soap caked around dispenser nozzle, dripping tap, dimly lit, flickering fluorescent light, long high window too small to be of much use, no ventilation, grimy tiled walls, graffiti scrawled in cubicles.
