    Ive never understood the need for a "no touch" soap dispenser…

    Even if your hands are covered in dog turd, and you push the dispenser to get the soap…you then wash your hands and dont touch the dispenser again…

    So sure… the dispenser now has dog turd on it… so when next person comes and uses the dispenser they get some dog turd on their hands pushing it… but its then washed off when they use the dispensed soap….

    Obviously the dog turd is just for extreme example, but the point is that you dont care if your hands are dirty before washing…only after!

      You'll love hospitals then. It's what they have outside a lot of operating theatres πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰

      The next person might not want to use it when it sees dog turd on it.

      My 7yr old has developed habit of not using soap.. Hoping if i make it easier or fun, he will use it.

      Also for the germaphobes…

        It's excellent with kids. Much easier than a press dispenser and you can use gentler no soap options (if you like). Just beware they also find it fun to release all the liquid soap in one go!

          "Just beware they also find it fun to release all the liquid soap in one go!"

          I can definitely see that happening…

      Hear hear! I get the desire for no-touch taps and no-touch hand dryers in commercial and/or public applications as you touch them after the soap/washing process but I never understood the whole no-touch soap dispenser. Another gadget to keep battery manufacturers happy and to increase landfill… which in turn could keep us above rising sea levels so hey, who am I to complain :p

      So do you think it's a bargain or not? Is this a good product vs other similar products or not?

    • +1 vote

      Nah sorry. Someone has to clean the dispenser. Much easier if you don't get it dirty in the first place. But I get some people are technophobes.

      This thing is so convenient that it's hard to go back to the traditional touch dispensers.

    What’s wrong with a bar of Imperial Leather?

      or Sunlite Soap

      As a microbio major, can tell you that a bar of soap is disgusting. The moist environment I.e. after you wet your hands allows bacterial to proliferate like crazy on the surface of the bar of soap that you think is helping you… It probably isn't antibacterial too (that concentration of soap definitely isn't)

        I dont remember my grandparents (or parents for that matter) ending up in hospital or getting sick because of a bar of soap. Some bacteria/germs are generally good for your immune system. And for the anti-bacterial thing, well from what I've read, one of the key ingredients is triclosan which isnt really great for your skin and has environmental impacts. There are some liquid hand soaps like those made by Balnea which dont contain this ingredient. Also the US FDA (which I understand can be a lot more stricter than AU regulators on some things, and kinda wishywashy on others) is also recommending just using soap and water: https://www.fda.gov/ForConsumers/ConsumerUpdates/ucm378393.h.... This is only one of a few examples of where I've read/heard that antibacterial soaps do more harm than good for human health.

        As a waiting-in-line-at-the-bus major I can tell you the average section of human skin is also disgusting, assuming the oddly delusional, yet wildly popular, definition of "disgusting" being "anything with > 0 bacterial cells present". Not all bacteria is going to crawl down your throat and do the Alien thing, most of it is harmless if your immune system isn't completely wrecked.

    Pro tip: you can skip the expensive refills and use any liquid soap by squeezing it into the canister.

    •  

      Yeah, but the cap is pretty tricky to open

      • +1 vote

        Nah, just use a butter knife or screwdriver to pry it open. Refill almost every fortnight (or more frequently) and no problems in 3 years.

      •  

        Yep, what woldshooter said. Easy to refill, just pop open the lid with a screw driver. Never try opening with your fingers, I learnt the hard way, damaged one of my nails.

    These ones tends to auto dispense even when no one is there after using them for awhile.

      I've used this version for over a year and they haven't exhibited this fault, unlike previous versions. YMMV of course.

      Out kitchen gets a lot of heavy light in the middle of the day, a bit of cloud cover or walking near the window in the kitchen sets it off. If batteries get low then it seems to get more sensitive for some reason.

    be warned that in the wrong place these can be a pain in the neck. We have one here at work and every time you put your hand near it to use something else, you get a drop of hand wash dispensed onto the benchtop.

    Are there any that dispense foam rather than a liquid?

    Love using this so convenient and practical.

    mine died after first use- leaked into it and kaput

    These are regularly $10 at Colesworth. I've stopped buying them because they broke all the time. Lasted about 6 months then just stop working.

    I just refilled mine from the last deal, you have to pry it open the first time and cut off the plastic tabs so you can easily reopen it to refill when empty

    •  

      Using my knowledge of advanced physics, I placed the empty container in a bowl of hot water (not boiling - didn't want to warp the plastic). I think I put a wooden spoon on top to keep it slightly submerged. Anyhow, in about 30 seconds there was this "pop" noise and the two parts separated. Rather violently, actually, with the base launching itself about 6 metres. Next time I might put a towel over the top to avoid being sprayed with nearly boiling water in the process. Anyhow, topped it up with liquid soap, clipped the lid back on, and works perfectly.

    Is this a bargain? It seems expensive to me.

    As others have mentioned, the 'bargain' is the 15% off orders >$50, not this specific product.

    For those that don't need or want five 'Hand Wash Systems', Catch have a bundle that contains one system and nine refills for $40 plus delivery.

      Good find, also as mentioned above by empty456.. The Amazon promotion applies to Household and Pantry products.. So you can mix and match there too.
