Whether it is at the kitchen or bathroom sink, liquid soap is the one thing that must always be within easy reach. The problem is unless you have a built in soap dispenser, you are forced to leave an unsightly plastic dispenser bottle on your counter.
While our kitchen has a soap dispenser built into the counter, finding the right dispenser for hand soap in our bathrooms has been a constant struggle. In the past I had used the foaming dispensers from Bath & Body Works, I recently learned that I have a gluten allergy, which includes even topical products. Due to this allergy, I had recently transitioned to using Method hand soap in my bathroom, but had yet to find a good hand soap dispenser for our second bathroom.
While that bathroom is primarily used by my husband, it also functions as our laundry room, as well as a guest bathroom, so I needed to find a hand soap dispenser that was easy to use as well as one that looked good while sitting on the counter.
I have always liked the idea of an automatic hand soap dispenser, but my only experience with one for the home was the Lysol hand soap dispenser, which in no way lived up to my expectations, and quickly got disposed of once we ran out of the soap bottles needed to feed the thing.
One one of my travels across the web, I happened to come across the automatic soap dispenser by iZiv. Since I am always up to try new gadgets whenever I find them, I had to give this hand soap dispenser a try.
When this touchless soap dispenser first arrived at my home, I have to say I liked the look of it right away. It had the nice modern stainless steel look, and the reservoir was large enough to hold plenty of liquid soap. The one thing I really liked was that it came with a removable twist on foot, that raised the bathroom soap dispenser up off the counter. That was one of my biggest complaints about the Lysol dispenser. It only had small built in bumps on the bottom that were supposed to be feet, but no matter how careful you were, water always got underneath the dispenser.
With this iZiv liquid soap dispenser, the feet raise it up high enough off the counter that even a bit of water on the counter will not have an effect on this bathroom soap dispenser. This is very important since the batteries that make this touchless soap dispenser work are located at the base of the dispenser and that is obviously something that you do not want water getting into.
Overall we are very happy with this touchless soap dispenser by iZiv. It holds plenty of liquid soap and dispenses the right amount of soap every time, eliminating the chance of dispensing too much and causing soap waste. Our one complaint is that this automatic soap dispenser does not work with rechargeable batteries, only traditional store bought batteries. I wouldn’t say this should be considered a deciding factor in whether or not you should buy this model, it just happens to be a matter of preference for us since we utilize rechargeable batteries for nearly everything in our home that is battery powered. If I had to do it again, I would most definitely purchase this iZiv automaic hand soap dispenser again.
