Hands Free Automatic Soap Dispensers

Updated on May 29, 2014

Touchless Soap Dispensers

In my house we use automatic soap dispensers in the kitchen and bathroom. In the kitchen, we use a no-touch dish soap dispenser. In the bathroom, we use a no touch hand soap dispenser and also a dispenser for our shampoo, conditioner and body wash.

A hands free soap dispenser is more sanitary, easier to use and in many cases, more decorative than a regular bottle of hand soap. Using motion sensor technology, they dispense the perfect amount of soap with just a wave of the hand.

The automatic soap dispenser pictured is available below.

This is the automatic soap dispenser my family uses. It fits right on the bathroom sink and looks a lot better than our old bottles of Softsoap. When we first bought it, I was worried that it would dispense soap right into the sink every time we walked by, but the motion sensor is only activated when we put our hands right under it. When I clean, I can even pick it up (from the back) and move it without activating it.

No touch soap refills are available in many varieties. Just a few to choose from are Grapefruit Essence, Soothing Cucumber Splash, Cranberry Delight, Aloe Vera & Vitamin E or Ginger & Green Tea. My family uses Ginger & Green Tea. It has a light scent and leaves our hands feeling smooth and moisturized.

The Best Touchless Dish Soap Dispenser

My Grandma's sink is a complete mess. She has a pump bottle of hand soap for washing dirty hands, a bottle of dish soap for washing dishes, and a bottle of cleanser for cleaning the table and counter tops. I need to get her one of these.

This only thing on my sink is a no-touch kitchen soap dispenser. It's one product that cleans our hands, dishes, table and counter tops. I think the automatic soap dispenser looks stylish and I love that it dispenses just the right amount of soap.

Lysols kitchen soap is like the swiss army knife of soaps. We use it for everything! I trust it to kill the bacteria and germs while washing my hands. It leaves my table and counter tops clean and sanitized. (Don't tell anyone but I also use it to clean my coffee table). Although it takes two dispenses to wash a full load of dishes, it gets my meatloaf pan just as clean as my old Dawn dish soap. It even tackles the tough food residue in my microwave.

The Best Shampoo Dispenser

I can't even begin to describe how much I love this dispenser. By holding our shampoo, conditioner and body wash, it's pretty much eliminated the clutter in our shower. What makes this shampoo dispenser different from others is that it includes a swivel mirror, razor hooks and a shelf on top. My husband loves the fog free mirror because now he can shave in the shower. I love the handy razor hooks because now I don't have to worry about my razor falling onto the tub floor and someone stepping on it.

But my most favorite thing about this dispenser is that by dispensing just the right amount, it saves us money. We used to have a problem with my husband using absurd amounts of shampoo. But since we got this dispenser, we can go three times longer before having to buy more.

My only wish is that it had 4 dispensers because my husband and I use different bodywash (something about him not wanting to smell like flowers and rain. Psshht!).

The Best Touchless Sanitizer Dispenser

simplehuman Touch Free Sanitizer DispenserCHECK PRICE

A lot of touchless hand sanitizer dispensers are pretty ugly and most of them require you to use their specific refills. But this dispenser is very stylish and you can refill it with the sanitizer (or hand soap or dish soap or lotion) of your choice. You can even choose how much it dispenses. The clear chamber lets you see how much sanitizer is left so you always know when to refill.

The reason I think so many people love this dispenser is because it's mess free. The wide opening makes refilling the dispenser easy and keeps spills and drips down to a minimum. The dispensing valve is designed to close completely so you don't have to worry about drips.

      I have not added automatic soap dispensers yet, but they certainly do make sense, especially with germs, etc.

      Yes we do....they're much better than a bar of soap, or the soap dispensers you have to touch. When you use those you're using everybody's germs...! ICK! Really great selection of products on this page.
