Regular readers know I’m a bit of a handwashing, infection control freak. For good reason. As I’ve pointed out before, poor infection control practices account for a large percentage of sepsis within hospitals. But even I think this is a little over the top. Ladies and germs, I give you the hands-free soap dispenser:
NEW LYSOL® No-TouchTM/MC Hand Soap System
Okay, let’s reason this through a bit. The premise is that there are all sorts of nasty bacteria on the top of those squirt bottles, because you’re touching it with dirty hands. Fair enough. But you’re proceeding directly from touching that icky top to washing your hands. Which to my mind, makes the whole deal about those nasty bacteria moot.
1. Squeeze down on top of soap dispenser.
2. Wash hands.
So do you really need one?
