Mr. Cold Soap Dispenser by Massimo Giacon for Alessi

You think you have it bad when you have a cold — this little guy looks about as stuffed up as we feel this time of year. But he's so adorable in the bathroom that you'll never forget to wash your hands. And oh yeah, you guessed it, the soap runs out his nose!

With all the talk of scary sicknesses this winter, we've been warned by everyone from our mother to Dr. Gupta that we need to wash our hands a lot. We're big fans of liquid soap and we love Alessi's Mr. Cold. It's designed by Italian designer and comic-strip artist Massimo Giacon and we like that it's a refreshing change from the more typical pump dispenser. Mr. Cold isn't the cheapest soap dispenser on the block, but we've had one for about 4 years now and love it. It's nearly unbreakable and is simple to refill (just unscrew his head). Even the younger kids that come over are inspired to use it.
