Dettol hands free soap dispenser £5.50 @ Tesco

Not quite as hot as the £1 deal in Poundland a while back, however since nobody has a time machine, it's a better deal than the £10 they usually are!

Maybe I am missing the point on these things, but I really do not see any point in the hands free soap dispenser, I assume the idea of the "hands free" is to stop the spread of germs, but surely you get the soap before you wash your hands anyway so this kind of defeats the object?! I just see it as another gimmick to use up more batteries polluting the environment, plus the refills are usually expensive as well I think?

Well,in some point you are right,but..it helps to teach kids to wash their hands.
Also,you can refill soap very easily with any liquid soap you like. Lots of videos on youtube about this.

Know what you mean, but why wash your hands in the first place. My take on having one of these or a hand pump is laziness and keeping the area cleaner than having a bar of soap.

Bought one when launched for approx 3pounds just keep refilling it with liquid soap at minimal cost do agree about the batteries could use rechargable ones though

Whilst I admit teaching children to wash their hands is a brilliant idea, I don't think this is the main intention, none of the ones of these I have seen are appealing to Children (usually plain white mode, not seen a Dora the Explorer / Thomas the Tank Engine etc.... (although you never know!)), I think it will just make children lazy!

Yes I am sure you could refill the bottle pretty easy, but even if this is the case you still have extra costs with batteries, the only time I could see this being a saving is if it dispenses a more sensible amount compared to what you would dispense with the hand pump.

Battery opening is on the base and water can leach in. Rubbish design.

Useful when handling raw food such as chicken, you dont want to touch the dispenser with raw food on your hands, you are spreading it to the next person. Plus if you cook a lot and handle raw food your hands are slimey so this is great.

Useless though if you dont have taps that you turn on with your elbow

Yes I know what you mean about the taps, they are much more important as you need to turn the tap off once you have finished washing, automated taps or long handle ones for pushing with your arm / elbow are a good idea!

I do not like it when you go to a restaurant and there is a basic towel to dry your hands, but also most hand dryers are rubbish too!

I can however press my soap dispenser with my elbow! :-)

Can get this price almost everyday, cold!

These are absolutely brilliant. They are regularly available for 2 or 3 quid though, so it would be silly to pay this price.

What about after you wash your hands in restaurant/public toilets, and you have to pull the door inwards to get out. And you know not everyone has washed there hands

Exactly.

Isn't this going down the road to ocd.

Love these. Didn't get the pound land deal.

That's true, I had to attach rubber feet to one of mine to raise it up a few mm as the battery terminals kept getting wet.

This is sheer laziness... Use the good ole method, which is free and followed by human in generation !!

OCD anyone?? :-P

I have one in my kitchen. It's great to use after handling raw meat
