Have you seen this new Lysol No Touch Hand Soap System automatic soap dispenser? I picked one up at Wal Mart last week when I saw they were selling them. I was so excited because my sister has had an automatic soap dispenser from Williams and Sonoma. She was given one as a gift a few years ago for Christmas. I believe the one she has runs between $30 and 40 dollars. She has always had a really hard time with refilling it. So, knowing that has kept me from putting out the money for one. So when I saw this one by Lysol, I decided that for ten dollars I'd give it a try.
I have a love hate relationship with this. First, when I went to put the soap into the dispenser it didn't click so it didn't work right away. But, I read the directions and once I did what it said it worked like a champ and has been ever since. Two things I don't like is that I don't like the smell of the soap. It isn't terrible, I just don't love it. And the other thing is that I feel like the dispenser puts out more soap than you need. I'd estimate it puts out about a teaspoons worth. It seems like a lot.
The dispenser comes with batteries, the dispenser, and one soap cartridge. The scent that I got is something with a leaf on it. They have another scent that is cucumber which is ok. The boxes have a scratch and sniff, but when I scratched mine in the store I couldn't smell anything so that wasn't any help. But, for the convenience of having the automatic dispenser I guess I'll get over it. I think Lysol should team up with Bath & Body Works. Those folks know how to make great smelling soaps. :)
I have my dispenser in my kitchen. The main reason I wanted this was so that when I cut up meat, I didn't have to touch the soap dispenser. I'm always worried about salmonella. So that has made me happy.
Bottom line, I do like this system and I would recommend it.
So, that is one new thing in my neck of the woods. Hope you are having a great day!
