Chris has always been hyper-aware of cross-contamination in the kitchen. He wears gloves when handling raw meat. We have a touch faucet so he can turn on the water–with his elbow!–and we now have a sensor soap dispenser from simplehuman. (We love it so much, at the end of the post we’re giving one away!)
While Chris does the cooking around here, I can’t tell you how many times the girls or I have been covered in stickiness or germs from school or paint or some other crafty mess that got transferred onto the soap dispenser to live until it was sanitized. Or how many times Chris has said, “Jules, can you squirt some soap in my hands” after handling raw chicken. A hands-free soap dispenser makes so. much. sense.
I love the sleek, but discreet dispenser–it fits so well next to the sink and the soap is rich, luxurious and foamy–the girls’ favorite. The dispenser works with a wide range of soaps and scents from simplehuman hand and dish soap, to hand soap from other great brands like EO and ARIA by Antica Farmacista that run from $7-$15. And instead of messy refills, the cartridges easily click into place.
And the icing on the cake? It’s rechargeable (no batteries!) *cue hallelujah chorus*, can still be rinsed in the sink, and one charge lasts about 3 months.
A lot of times, we focus on big things we did that drastically changed our home or improved our lives. It’s refreshing to share with you a small thing that did that for us, too.
You can purchase the dispenser and soaps here. And we’re giving one away, too! Enter below.
