    I'd put another mirror on the other side of the room, and keep the dryer away from the basin, RCD or not.

    I wouldn't want to find out if you get a jolt in the tiny time between the fault and cut off.

    I'd be surpirised if it was legal, RCD or not. Generally all you can have in a bathroom is a shaver socket which uses an isolating transformer.

    But I think you're in the wrong forum really.

    RCDs are not 100% protection. Apart from the shaver and toothbrush, there should be no other electrical appliance anywhere near a basin :nono:

    Dry your hair somewhere else - or shave your head!
