simplehuman Sensor Pump

• $39.99

We've been using a refillable glass spouted soap dispenser in the kitchen for awhile now, purchasing soap in bulk to cut down on packaging waste. But something that always bothered us with both this and every other bottle is the mess we often transfer while pouring/squeezing the liquid soap out while cleaning up (aka spaghetti stain fingerprints), alongside the risk of it slipping out of our soapy hands. Call us neat freaks, but we LOVE the automated simplehuman sensor pump, which eliminates the need to touch anything. Just place your hand underneath it and the right amount of dishwashing soap is dispensed onto the sponge each and every time (you can adjust the amount), with nary a fingerprint. And anything that makes dishwashing easier is a welcome addition into our home.
