You Know those Touchless Soap Dispensers?

I honestly dont get the point... They say it helps reduce germs and what not. I personally, dont touch the soap pump again after I wash my hands. So if I touch it before I wash my hands, whats the difference? Ill be washing them anyways... Hmmm

  • I agree 100% Its marketing to the crazy germ-o-phobes out there. Waste of money.

  • From a grown-up point of view with an elderly grandmother it is a life saver because she can wash her hands without having to try to push the pump down. From the kid point of view...not a good idea because the kids think it is neat to just watch the soap come out onto the counter and make a big mess.

  • I agree RIDICULOUS!! There are people out there who will buy it though. Wish I could invent something dumb like that and make a million!

  • I told my husband the same thing. You touch it, wash your hands, and then don't touch it again. Stupid. Funny though that the day after I told my husband how stupid they were his aunt gave us one.

  • I can see the benefit with young children, less waste and less mess.

  • I can see one upside to these. I have just finished mixing a meatloaf with my I have to go touch the kitchen faucet to turn the water on...yuck. So it would be nice to have one of those faucets you can just bump with your wrist and then some soap dispensed without mucking up the dispenser.

  • I agree wit PP about having one in the kitchen. I cook a lot of meats and hate having to call DH in to turn on the water and pump soap for me.
