Dettol No Touch Hand Wash System £1 @ Poundland

155
Found 8th Nov 2013
RRP £10 , its a steal at £1
Found in East Dereham,Norfolk Poundland store.

Easy and convenient to use, the Dettol No-Touch Hand Wash System helps to encourage good hand hygiene habits.
The Dettol No-Touch Hand Soap Refill is enriched with moisturising ingredients to help care for your skin - and it kills 99.9% of bacteria.

Includes dispenser, hand wash refill and 4 x AA batteries.

FYI as an alternative which is non electric , and Lidl and Aldi sell their normal hand wash (500ml) for 55p and 75p which is always cheaper than 99p or £ shops. More over you can use bath wash or body wash as hand wash too since they differ by additives only and they clean the same.

Worth it just for the soap
Sweet have some heat

It's a quid, it's re-fillable with cheap liquid handsoap, the batteries it comes with last well (i.m.e)
The sensor works pretty well, it encourages kids to wash their hands, even if they still have to touch taps, doors etc that you find in the way in everyday modern life*...

*Getting all the old arguments out of the way early!

HEAT HEAT HEAT

Great find, will check if my pound has any in.

It's bloody cheap ! Hope I will find some in my local Poundland.

Blimey I have never seen it at this price.
Time to stock up
Well spotted
Loads of HEAT!!

MOTHER OF GOD!

do they also sell refills for it? HEAT!

Nice find, agree with 'the usual arguments' for £1 it is definitely worth it just for the soap.
Voted Hot!

Pointless money making product but worth a quid for the batteries

Is this deal real?. I cant believe it is, anyone else agree?

I bought one a few months ago for £5 and I have no complaints. They dispense just the right amount of hand wash and it has never leaked or dripped. My one gripe was the price of the 'official' refills but if you just take the existing one out and use a flat-head to pry it open slightly you can refill it with whatever hand wash, vodka, gin.. whatever!

Very cheap! They were on offer in morrisons for about £6 a couple of weeks ago so £1 is dirt cheap

Has anyone else spotted these at other Poundland stores?

Poundland near my workplace had 3 units and one open Got them all
Will check another store tomorrow.
Fantastic buy at £1

Very good deal. Hope they're in all pound land wouldn't mind getting a couple!

heat if can lay my hands on atleast one :-/

Proof that even fairly pointless products are worth having if cheap enough.

I like this idea: would this thing fill a shot glass in one go?

good price but has been proven they are a waste of tiime if worried about germs as you still have to use the taps to rinse. But handy if you're lazy and can't be bothered to use a pump or for kids / elderly who cant manage a pump. Refils are expensive and the units can be very sensitive and dispense themselves by doors closing, lights coming on etc.

beecause...?

Kills 99.9% of bacteria? Hmmm...I want MORE.

Someone brought one of these round when our baby was born. We were sceptical but used it all the time. Very handy. Don't agree that it's just for people who are 'too lazy' (?!) to use a pump - the idea is that you don't touch it.

That has happened literally zero times with ours. You have to put your hands right under it for it to dispense anything.

Great deal for £1 if you can find one.

Hope my poundland has one!

Sounds like a bit of troll-talk ('units being very sensitive'). I've never had any issues with mine, and the batteries last for months

Ditto, never happened in 3 years of using ours (the kid mainly), i'd be chuffed if I had a wee sensor that operated at such a range, I could re-purpose it for other things....

Is this a national deal? Anyone confirm?

I can always manage a pump!

I've had two of mine go wrong and dispense 3 lots of soap each time they're triggered. Weren't difficult to repair, but had I seen some for sale for less than £5 I wouldn't have bothered

Had one for about a year, very good and all I do is refill the bottle with normal handwash,

but that's Dettol for you, profiting from scaremongering

Has anyone rumbled themselves as a scruffy beggar who doesn't was their taps yet?

Oh, there he is.....

Haha only kiddin! A bit.

I was thinking of emptying them of soap and filling them with vodka, whisky and gin, walk up, put glass underneath and viola! Measure amount of drink Could even make a fancy holder to store them in with a hole for the sensor

They don't last long, but still good for a pound

Mine dispense loads, I ended up buying some refills from the 99p store and I've worked out that dividing the contents of one between 3 and topping up with water, give it a good shake and it works out perfectly. I tried getting 4 from 1 but that's too diluted. If I didn't do that and bought refills each time it would be a very expensive habit.

When these came out ~2.5 years ago, we got one for -5p when they were £4.95 and £5 off couchers via this site.
It was OK, but fell in the sink and never worked again, that was only half-way through it's first refill.
It's probably good if you are partially paralysed or something but that's all.
Wouldn't buy again.

yeah, they have a habit of falling into the sink

probably the no-touch bit that confuses people
maybe it was the no-touch bit that

I figured that, for the germ argument to work, I would need a house full of sensors so I didn't touch ANYTHING. I mean, what's the point in not touching the soap dispenser, when I still have to touch everything else? I thought it was just another thing to clean, refill, put new batteries in, etc., etc., and it would take up more space on the sink than a standard bottle, and the grandchildren would play with it as they are addicted to anything soapy, messy and bubbly.
On the other hand, if it's only a pound....:p
I've checked the website but not there, does anyone know if it's national?
