Dettol No-Touch Hand Wash System
Advantages: Great scents, clean and good look
Disadvantages: our downstairs bathroom sink is too small for one
Flush the toilet and wash your hands!!!!!
I feel like I say that sentence about 7million times a week. The boys head into the toilet (husband included) and leave me the worst mess! One of my biggest issues is a messy toilet. I'm not sure I will ever fully train them to stop weeing on the seat and remembering to wash their hands (to be fair this bit is just the kids!). I saw an online offer for the Dettol no touch soap dispenser and got one for the house. The offer meant I got it free so no complaints there. Normal selling price is £4.99 depending on where you shop.
Getting the product home I broke it out of the box and inserted the AA batteries (included in package) and clicked the soap into place. Now ready to go I put the soap by the sink. Now it was just a matter of waiting to see if this whips the boys into shape.
The kids thought this hand washing system was very cool and as we lived in a small terrace house at the time I could hear the soap being dispensed and knew the kids were washing their hands which was fabulous.
Now that we have moved we have a family bathroom instead of two smaller bathrooms off each room. The original Dettol dispenser is now in the kitchen and another one has been purchased for the family bathroom. I had a few friends over after we moved in and we were standing in the kitchen when I friend picked the dispenser up to see what it was not realizing it was going to spill soap over her hands. I explained what it was and gave her another online coupon I had acquired. She caught me up at the school days later saying she'd got one and was very pleased with it.
The 250ml soaps come in a few scents which are
* Cleansing Green Tea & Ginger
* Refreshing Grapefruit Essence (Refill only)
* Hydrating Cucumber Splash
It seems everywhere I've seen these dispensers the only scent available is the cucumber splash. The second one I got I ended up ordering off the internet (Amazon) as I not only wanted the Grapefruit replacement for the old one but I wanted the silver one as it would look better in our bathroom then the white one. The silver one was a little more expensive (£12.50) but I had my Dooyoo voucher so I treated myself. Best bit is you only have to buy the dispenser once and then purchase the refills. The silver dispenser came with an Aloe Vera soap that is really nice and moisturising.
One of the reasons I like having one in the kitchen is because when I am doing something like preparing chicken I don't have to get chicken all over the place when trying to wash my hands.
One idea would be to get a £20 Amazon Voucher from Dooyoo and then purchase for £19.99 the dispenser with a 3 pack refill. That means you'd end up with 4 soaps (3 different scented refills). Or if you need more than one there's a 2 dispenser set with 5 soaps in total for £29.99.
From the Dettol site:
DETTOL No-Touch Hand Wash System helps eliminate the millions of germs that your hands can pick up each day! It automatically senses hands and dispenses just the right amount of soap.
Handwashing is one of the most important steps you and your children can take to help you stay away from harmful germs that can cause diseases and with the DETTOL No-Touch Hand Soap System, you and your family will never have to touch a germy soap pump again. It's ideal for use in the kitchen or bathroom.
The starter kit includes a dispenser, one hand soap refill, and four AA batteries. When you use the DETTOL No-Touch Hand Wash System, you'll know you're helping your family by fostering proper and effective handwashing to help prevent the spread of harmful germs.
The Dettol dispenser has been a good help and I certainly recommend it. If only Dettol could get them to flush the toilet that'd be perfect!
