Advantages: Easy to put together, great to use
Disadvantages: Sensor is very sensitive, refills expensive
I hate soap and bits hanging around my kitchen and bathroom sink scumming the place up and looking horrid nevermind unhygienic! Usually I buy liquid soap for a quid or so a time when I need it however I was really lucky the other day to find these Dettol No-Touch Hand Wash Systems in my local Poundland store and another lady looking at them told me she just bought her Mum one for almost £10.00 as she grabbed loads of the shelves so I quickly grabbed two of them knowing I was making a saving of around £18.00!
Everything you need for the complete hand system comes encased in see through plastic and on the front of it we are told what it is and who it is by and that the option I bought is the Healthy Touch Anti-Bacterial formulation and that it kills 99.9% germs 'Cleansing Green Tea & Ginger' and that you get the dispenser, hand wash refill (20ml) and 4 AA batteries. On the back of the packaging we are told a bit about the product and how to set it up and use it and then on the base of the packaging contact details for the manufacturer are given. Nice enough packaging this is.
What you get is a rather large white dispenser with a red light to the front it it and a piece of grey and white plastic to the top of it of which the soap is dispensed from. At the base of the unit there is a very simple to remove panel where we are clearly told how to pop the batteries in the right way (you get 4 unbranded batteries with this as well) and to the back of the unit you get a manual on/off switch. The refill (you can buy these separately) is a large size and you can partially see the top of it when its in the unit and all in all although a large unit it is very well made, you take the label off the bottom part of the dispenser soap and thats that you gently shove it in the unit and away you go. I was really pleased it took me less than a minute to put it together and it was really, really easy.
Now you can leave this dispenser turned on and in which case it will only use the battery when you wave your hand near the sensor light and when it dispenses soap to which it gives you a very decent measure every time of said soap. Or of course if you have little ones about you can turn it off so I think this is great little feature and very well thought out indeed.
Me I keep mine turned off most of the time as I have a habit of making it sense me and dispense not needed soap all the time!
Like I mentioned earlier I have the Green Tea & Ginger variety of this and its a see through rather runny gel like liquid and to me it smells rather aftershavy with a hint of green tea to it and I cant detect the ginger aroma within in but it is really a fresh and clean fragrance this one and the scent lingers on my hands for ages after using it. It lathers up really easily, washes off easily too and knowing its a Dettol product I can trust that my hands are as clean as they feel and look, whats more this stuff is really moisturising in a none greasy way too.
I really love my units, I do wish it wasn't so sensitive to me and went off so much though when I least expected it to however its a quiet enough unit and looks really modern and all in all I love my two and so does my boyfriend who is a real clean freak so thumbs up from us on this one!
