Germs are gross plain and simple. They cause bacteria which is easily shared among people in a household. I can admit I have become somewhat of a germaphobe since having children. I wipe things after sticky hands touch them, tables, chairs, door knobs, railings, toys you name it, especially when they are sick!
We try to enforce hand washing in this household – hundreds of bacterial germs can get on you just by using something like a public door handle. With the oldest in school and the youngest who puts everything in his mouth – cleanliness is not an option.
The kitchen gets a lot of traffic, kids running in and out the back door – rule: wash your hands if you’ve been playing outside. Sounds simple until my five year old tries it. Dirt on the soap dispenser and soapy water all around the sink from using way too much. Bar soap? Forget it. They harbour bacteria which can spread to the next one to touch it plus they aren’t as effective for killing germs. What a mess, until now.
Lysol came out with a great way to keep the dispenser clean & get hands washed – the Lysol Healthy Touch, No Touch hand soap system. We have all used the automatic hand soap/sanitizers, water taps and hand dryers in public washrooms and now Lysol is bringing it into our homes.
Having had the opportunity to try it (thanks to the people at Lysol for sending me a cute gift basket), I can honestly say I wish I had tried it sooner! A neat looking, counter top soap dispenser that uses a automatic motion sensor to distribute just the right amount of soap needed to sanatize those dirty hands and it’s made by Lysol who are one of my favourite brands for household cleaning products.
My daughter was amazed at the fact there are no pumps or buttons to press and parents there is an on/off switch at the back just incase, you wouldn’t want to waste any soap! It doesn’t drip or leave any residue where the soap comes out so no left over soap mess on the counter. The hand soap itself smells good & fresh with moisturizers leaving your hands feeling silky soft too!
The Lysol no touch hand soap system can be purchased at most stores that sell Lysol products like Walmart – $9.95 for a starter kit which includes the dispenser, soap & 4 AA batteries and $4.95 for a refill bottle of hand soap. The hand soap comes in two great smelling fragrances – Hydrating cucumber splash and Cleansing green tea & Ginger.
