Touchless Soap Pumps? April 28, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tiffany C @ 8:45 AM

Before you run out, in a panic, to buy the newest plastic gadget, the touchless soap pump, consider this; don’t you wash your hands after you touch a soap pump?  I mean really, unless you are just doing a quick rinse, aren’t you going to wash those germs off your hands?  We love a new plastic gadget, but this is ridiculous.  How about concentrating on doing a good job washing our hands.  The recommended length of time to wash your hands is a minimum of 20 seconds, 30 or more is even better.  That’s about the same amount of time as singing Happy Birthday twice.  Save yourself some money and skip this item.  You’ll have one less thing to send to the landfull when it stops working, and you know it will.
