Dettol No Touch Hand Wash System

I've been doing a lot of cooking with Jack recently and, with potty training also hanging over us, have been teaching him good handwashing habits. At pre-school they always go and wash their hands before eating and Jack will quite often go off and wash his hands himself before eating (if he's sees that they're grubby!) and doesn't really need any encouragement. His big brother, however, often has to be reminded, since he has been at school he is usually in and out of the toilet in no time with me calling after him 'don't forget to wash your hands....'. 

I now have a secret weapon, perfect for getting in the most soap shy kids washing their hands, The Dettol No Touch Hand Wash System. We all like gadgets but often most of them have no long term place in our homes, we just fall for the novelty factor. The Dettol No Touch Hand Wash System is not one of those though, it's definitely going to be a keeper in our house. The kids are practically begging to wash their hands and have a go.

DETTOL No-Touch Hand Wash System helps eliminate the millions of germs that your hands can pick up each day! It automatically senses hands and dispenses just the right amount of soap.
Handwashing is one of the most important steps you and your children can take to help you stay away from harmful germs that can cause diseases and with the DETTOL No-Touch Hand Soap System, you and your family will never have to touch a germy soap pump again. It's ideal for use in the kitchen or bathroom.

The pump is also great whilst preparing food, how often have you had flour, pastry or even raw meat juices over your hands and you've had to either touch your soap pump and then wash it afterwards or try and press it with your elbow! This system uses infra red to sense palms under the nozzle and automatically pumps out soap avoiding the need for contact and also reduces the spread of germs about the home.

The stainless steel effect of the pump makes it ideal for even modern kitchens and bathrooms.

You do have to be very careful where you position it though, I had it next to the sink which meant when someone pushed their dirty plate onto the worktop for washing it would get a squirt of soap if it was pushed under the dispenser, and as you can see from the video, Jack was rather taken with it, thinking it was a new toy so I've had to keep it out of his reach. 

Daddy wasn't much better, when it was his turn to have a go his hands lingered under the pump for too long which dispensed a second dose, unfortunately not over his hands!

The pump retails at £9.99 with the refils around £2.99 – but I have today seen the dispenser half price in Asda for only £5.00.


  1. Wow! Only a fiver? I will be buying one on the weekend! I'd wondered if they were any good, thanks for the videos to show how they work!

  2. The videos made me laugh! Did your son stay in the bathroom all day playing with his new toy? I turned mine around and turned it off in the end - I must say though the soap smells wonderful and it is a great idea, you just have to be careful where you place it though.

  3. he would've done if I'd let him! I've put it on a high shelf now to make sure it doesn't squirt on any plates again!

  4. yep, on Rollback so not sure if that's a permanent or temporary thing - think Tesco have one of the refills for only £1.50 too, stock up!
