Perfect for that moment when you need some bedside lube!
Could never understand these things a sensor so you don't have touch a pump? Your washing your hands anyway!

I think their point is when you touch the soap dispencer, you follow that by washing your hands, so even if the dispenser is contaminated, your hands shouldn't be.

Nice try, but that's exactly what someone who frequently frolics on the focaccia WOULD say.

Never understood these either, you turn on the tap with unwashed hands, use the sensor for soap but still need to turn off that tap, it's fine in American movies when they use their elbow to turn the tap on and off ours twist.
I’ve got this and it’s great but be aware it goes through AA batteries like nobody’s business! I don’t know if it’s because I’m not using the correct Simple Human soap, it’s very runny compared to the one I’ve been using.

I would water thicker soap down slightly. The soap will last longer too.

How long does a set of AA batteries last?

We got rid of ours for this exact reason!
I have one of these. It died within the first year and no longer pumped soap. I contacted their support by email and Facebook and heard nothing back, so customer service could improve. Took mine apart and realised a rubber o ring had snapped on the motor, replaced it with a small rubber band and it has been working well for a couple of years. I use rechargable AAs and they last about 8 weeks, so normal AAs will last longer.

Funny how no single hospital in the UK uses automatic soap dispensers...


The only thing this is useful for would be the fact it won't get dirty itself if you would manually press the pump
These were £4.99 at Aldi. Same model (rebranded). They're also pretty crap. They eat batteries like nothing else.
Agree I bought one too and they do eat batteries, so use rechargeable ones! It does dispense a bit too much soap too. Otherwise it's ok'ish...

Yh but if ur washing ur hands then that's generally because they're dirty and u touch the pump before ur hands have been cleaned in essence meaning you've put ur dirty hands on the pump!
It also assumes most people know how to wash their hands correctly. Hint: not many people actually wash their hands properly. If you've been handing raw chicken and then tap a soap dispenser and give your hands a poor wash, you've not got contaminated hands and contaminated soap dispenser. I watch people wash their hands and they apply soap and rub them under the water for about 5 seconds, you're supposed to give your hands a good scrubbing together for 15-30 seconds for optimum results, and even that is not guaranteed, washing your hands isn't going to remove absolutely everything - surgical staff scrub their hands, fingers and under the finger nails for 2 minutes.

That said, if you can wash your hands properly you probably dont need one of these.
They don't have anti-bac soap available so it is not great for the kitchen

Chef of 30 years, no need for anti-bac soap in a domestic kitchen. The advertisers have sold everyone this lie for years. Simple soap and hot water and a good hand washing routine is all you need

This is true, but most people don't have a good hand washing routine. Anti bacterial has no benefit in a consumer kitchen with the caveat that the user has the correct and thorough hand washing technique.

agreed
I honestly don't understand why anyone would buy one of these. It costs £15, it requires batteries and I don't imagine its cheap to keep it refilled.

Is it just me, because this just makes me question whats wrong with a bar of soap?

You do know you can change the amount of soap that’s dispensed? The smallest amount is comical so I don’t know if you have yours on max or something?
UKJBreezy18/08/2019 17:19

You only use the pump when you wash your hands so it doesn't matter if you are that worried about germs you better get yourself some elbow taps as normal taps you touch before and after you have washed them!
I never understood these things....
Turns on tap
Uses motion detection soap dispenser
Turns off tap you touched before....
Open door you touched before.....

All the soaps help you wash away bacteria and viruses that's reason for their existence.

'Antibacterial' soaps you are referring to have some extra antibacterial additives which should help kill bacteria if they were not washed away by soap and water. There are some concerns that frequent use of such soaps will create drug resistant bacteria.

These abtibacterial soaps have been banned in US. So, kids wash your hands properly, at least 30 seconds of thourugh rinse.

My simplehuman one last over three years before it stopped working and needed replacing.

You’ve still got to touch your taps to turn them on and then off when you’ve finished, so unless you give your taps a clean before you turn them off it’s all pretty pointless really.
