No Hands!

My dad is a bit of a germaphobe. He's ever-so-kindly passed that on to me. It's really fun. *eye roll*

Anyway, my parents were at the grocery store and came across this. I think it launched in the UK a couple months ago, but apparently it's new here. They bought one for the downstairs bathroom and loved it so much that they bought one for all our bathrooms.

It's the Dettol No-Touch Hand Wash System.

Basically, it's a little, automatic antibacterial soap dispenser. It runs on batteries and has tiny sensors in it so there is no pump to use, you just place your hands under the nozzle and it automatically dispenses the soap.

I'm not really sure how environmentally friendly this is. It does run on batteries so you will have to replace them. Also, it has a lot more plastic than regular soap dispensers, but I guess in the long run it evens out because all you have to do is replace the actual soap bottle (I'm sure you could just refill it).

But I do love my gadgets so I am going to try this out for a while and see how it goes.

Love and kisses,

  1. The batteries are no problem, you can easly buy rechargable batteries. They are much more enviromental friendly than regular ones.

  2. Oh, you know, I never even thought of rechargeable batteries! Thanks :)

  3. Mine won't work on rechargeable batteries. I think they really guzzle batteries.

  4. I'm sure they do. To be honest, I stopped using mine! I was just having to replace the soap so much more than my regular soap dispenser (even though I think they dispensed the same amount)

  5. Mine won't work on rechargeable batteries. I think they really guzzle batteries.

  6. No, it cannot be refilled but must replace the soap bottle, so more plastic to throw away.


Thank you for leaving a comment! :)
