Advantages Very easy to use/set up, looks very modern
Disadvantages Expensive for what it is, the unnecessary use of screws.
In this day and age the whole world seems obsessed with hygiene and cleanliness and the recent Swine Flu outbreak has just gone to heighten the awareness and in some cases paranoia concerning daily hygiene. With this in mind it’s understandable that while some companies are going bust during the recession, hygiene companies will undoubtedly be making a decent profit with all this hype (necessary or unnecessary) that the media are feeding us.When you think about it logically, it can’t just be soap and hand sanitizer gel sales that are escalating, the way we dispense our soap has become almost as important as which soap we use and how. Some people still opt for the old fashioned soap bar which slips out of your hands on a regular basis however these days most homes and public conveniences now use soap dispensers with liquid soap which ensures both ease of use and a higher level of hygiene.
*** What is it? ***The Simplehuman Sensor Soap Pump is basically a hands free way of dispensing soap into your hands, therefore without having to touch anything to get soap you will not be picking up germs from the pumps that are normally found on regular dispensers.
*** How It Works ***The dispenser holds 414ml (14oz) of soap and dispenses it in a shrewd and innovative way. You simply place your hands under the sensor which is clearly indicated and soap will instantly be dispensed into your hands, as little or as much as you require. There are different settings that you can change easily which enable you to alter how much soap is dispensed and there is even a built in timer which lasts 20 seconds (the minimum amount of time you should spend washing your hands).
*** Setting Up ***The dispenser couldn’t be easier to set up, it requires 2 AA batteries which could be a downside for some people as it means an extra expense but we have now had the device over a year and have only changed the batteries once so they don’t suck up power like you’d expect them to. The batteries are inserted in the bottom of the dispenser, to insert the batteries you will need to unscrew two small screws. This seems like a bit of a job but it’s easily done, however I personally feel that a normal clip which you find on most battery compartments would have been more than sufficient therefore I think the fact that this device requires a screwdriver is a little over the top and unnecessary.
Once the batteries are inserted in the correct way you then need to insert the soap. Fortunately this is a lot easier than inserting the batteries and all that is required of you is to turn the top in a clockwise direction which opens the compartment enabling you to easily pour soap in. Once the soap is in you simply screw the top back on and you’re away. Be careful where you’re pouring the soap and don’t fill it too fill, the top does go down into the soap compartment by a couple of centimetres therefore if you fill the compartment right to the brim with soap you’re likely to be greeted with a bit of a mess.
