~ Dettol No-Touch Hand Wash System ~
I bought this quite some time ago now after seeing the advertisements on the telly. I wasn't initially drawn to it if I'm honest as I didn't really see the need for one, but after seeing them for the cheap price of £2 (not sure where, but could have been in Asda?) I decided to get one.
The Dettol No-Touch Hand Wash System comes in two colour ways, one being white the other silver and usually I would opt for the silver colour but with this I opted for the white unit. I thought that the silver one looked decidedly cheap and very plastic looking, whereas the white was just quite plain looking.
The unit stands at just under seven and half inches in height (including the bottle of hand wash). The unit is manufactured from a hard plastic, and whilst the main colour is white, there is a silver section running around the top. On the front is a pinky coloured indicator light, this lights up when the unit is switched on but not when it is in use. I think it may light up if the batteries are running low, however I am not sure! Above this is a a hollow line through which you can see the hand wash, this I find handy as I can clearly see when we are running low.
The unit features a no touch nozzle. You simply place your hands underneath the sensor and this allows the unit to dispense a small amount of hand wash into your hands.
Now, I don't actually see the need for a no-touch system, after all you still have to turn the taps on and off therefore spreading the germs as you usually would, I just think that this unit makes me think about these things more!
I think they are great for children however as it dispenses a small amount of soap so it's not being wasted.
I keep mine in the kitchen but they could also be used in bathrooms etc.
The price on the refills for these units is quite steep. I don't buy them, I simply refill my one with a cheaper hand wash, it takes a bit of elbow grease to get the lid off but after it's off, it's quite easy to refill.
My unit came with Hydrating Cucumber Splash hand wash which was very nice and very fresh smelling. I felt comfortable using it before making up my sons feeds as it claims to kill 99.9% of germs.
The unit comes with an on/off switch located on the back and that is also where you will find the eject button to release the hand wash bottle. The battery compartment is underneath the unit. It takes 4 AA batteries which were included when I bought it.
These are currently priced at £9.98 in Asda for the complete unit, and the bottles of hand wash refills are priced at £3.05 each.
Tesco have them on offer at £4.99 for the complete unit with the choice of either white or silver, this offer is valid from 4th June 2012 - 24th June 2012.
You may also find them cheaper in places like Savers, B&M's , Home Bargains and the such.
Thanks for reading :o) x
