I understand that we are supposed to let our hands air-dry after washing them (when leaving a cemetery). Can we blow dry them?

Per this link, the whole idea of not drying hands when leaving a cemetery is a "Minhag Taus" and there would not be any problem with air drying them.

This doesn't answer the question and should probably be a comment: The premise of the question is according to those who say that it is a minhag... –  yydl Oct 16 '11 at 4:02
    
+1 comment to yydl. Firstly if I'm not mistaken, the hand-washing is tuma related (but because now we're all considered tamea... then it might be a minhag) –  wizlog Oct 16 '11 at 4:16
