As Indians, we all distinctly remember our elders keeping aside a tiny piece of leftover bathing soap for washing hands later on. Don’t we? Maybe some of us still do it. It was just that we collectively ignored the tons of bacteria that were residing on those pieces of soaps.
Oh, we should not forget that every member of the family would use the same soap for washing their hands!
Sometimes it’s baffling to think that we survived those bacteria, our own and that of the others, without falling severely sick too often.
Like hand dryers, soap dispensers are normally seen in public toilets, hotels and the likes to ensure that people can maintain the basic levels of hygiene even outdoors.
And it’s necessary to have such dispensers that don’t require the users to touch the soap which hundreds others would have previously used, which was the case before the use of soap dispensers.
The cool things about a soap dispenser
When we talk about how technology has actually made lives safer and easier, we should look at the everyday things. For example, washing hands. At first, we may think ‘well, there isn’t much scope here to make things easier or better’ but, as we can see today, the benefits we get from can’t be quantified – it’s about hygiene.
Here’s the cool part: they work either with motion sensors or infrared energy. High end tech for washing hands!
These are some of the benefits of using an automatic soap dispenser:
- You need not even touch the dispenser
This is the most crucial one. The very purpose of using an automatic dispenser is to avoid contact with the soap and a dispenser does the job just fine.
- You can set the amount of liquid soap that comes at each time
This feature is something we can’t get using bar soap and this also saves a good amount of soap. Though this feature may not be available in all dispensers, the amount of liquid to be used would still be very much in control of the user.
- Cleaner bathroom
A bar soap can create a mess unlike others – in the form of tiny pieces that get stuck in corners which may eventually block the drain(though very rarely). A liquid soap, however, completely rules out the possibility of such problems.
- Liquid soaps lasts longer than normal soaps
This is not even up for debate, Bar soaps are prone to a lot of wastage and liquid soaps are safe in a container, assuming there is no hole in the container.
- Creates zero mess around washbasins
Do we need to elaborate on this one? The tidiest of places would face this issue and yours and ours are no exception. The solution is a dispenser. Simple. It would be great if it is wall-mounted.
How does it add value?
Though we have already breezed through the benefits of a soap dispenser, there are other subtle things it offers.
Our expectations with anything that’s kept in the bathroom would range from ‘takes less space’ to ‘creates manageable mess’. However, in the case of soap dispensers, one can expect a lot more – like expecting it to make the bathroom look ‘cool’. Because of the amount of space it takes up, though not significantly lesser than a regular soap bar, we get some sleek designs.
Why should you buy an automatic soap dispenser, a wall-mounted one?
- Better hygiene
If you are someone who hates a messy bathroom or you have a sense for maintaining a hygienic bathroom, then you should have a soap dispenser. Though, hygiene should be ideally the first reason.
- Costs less than bar soaps
It saves a good amount of money on the use of soap because excess usage and repeated wastage while using a bar soap is totally avoided.
- You can maintain distance from viruses
People still need to wear masks, you know why. To ensure that we don’t leave any stone unturned for keeping ourselves safe from viruses, it’s best to use hands-free automatic dispensers.
Though the primary purpose could be to use it to suspense liquid soap, it need not be restricted to soaps. One can use it for hand sanitiser, shampoo, body wash or hand cream.
We should not be still talking about how important being hygienic is in the post-COVID world. But take it as a reminder – a wall mounted automatic soap dispenser is a must in today’s world, be it for public places or at your home.
Viruses and bacterias can sneak into almost every single place(they are, actually. But not all of them are life threatening) and we can prevent getting affected by them by doing simple things like using an automatic soap dispenser.
