Very good, if slightly generous,

This review is from: Dettol No Touch Cucumber Splash Hand Wash System (250ml) (Personal Care)
I saw this item for sale in a large supermarket for £10, so the under-£7 price tag, incl P&P) was very attractive.
From the moment I put the (supplied) batteries in, it has worked perfectly every time.
The only slight drawback is that it dispenses fractionally more soap than I need, (and much more than small children need), but having said that, we have been using it for four weeks now and still only got through less than half of the supplied bottle. If you have large hands, you'll probably find that it dispenses just the right amount. (The batteries are still going strong too!)
It's worth noting that although the dispenser is no-touch, you still have to touch the toilet door handle (if you have a separate loo) and the taps, so it's a bit self-defeating. A dispenser that dispensed about half that amount of sanitising gel (which doesn't need water) might've been a better idea for us, but this device performs exactly as it says, and apart from the slightly generous portions it dishes out, we're very happy with it. (And the kids love using it too!)

In reply to C. Curtis - the proper way to wash hands is to run a sink of water, turn off taps, soap hands rinse in the water in the sink, pull plug out!! No need to touch the taps and if everybody washes their hands - no need to fear the door handle!!

C. Curtis says:
And how is one supposed to run a sink of water and turn the taps off without touching them? After using the toilet, you have to touch the flushing handle, the toilet door handle, the bathroom door handle and of course, the taps, all of which you are passing germs onto. How do you do it, Mrs Marriott? Run the sink first and leave all the doors open while you're in the loo? And the 'proper way' to wash your hands is in RUNNING water, otherwise you just rinse them in the dirty water that you've just washed them in!
By the way, liquid soap refills for this machine cost around £3, which is quite pricey. I've experimented with forcing the lid off the old soap bottle and filling it with ordinary liquid soap, and the machine still works fine!
