Before buying an automatic soap dispenser, there are a few points you should take into consideration. To help you with this, we've put together this handy buying guide!
Soap dispensers will dispense either liquid soap or foam soap and it's important to know what type of soap your dispenser is made for. Both types of soap are sold in liquid form. However, foam soap changes to foam when it is dispensed and needs a special pump to do this.
Dispensers for liquid soap are usually cheaper as they don’t need the special pump and the refills also cost less. Liquid soap dispensers can handle thicker liquids than foam soap ones.
Foam soaps need less water to make a lather as they're already mixed with air. Foam soap may last longer, as it takes less to wash your hands than liquid soap. If you have two equally sized automatic soap dispensers, the foam dispenser may last longer before needing to be refilled.
Most soap dispensers can be placed on a counter, so look for a flat and solid surface near your sink. If counter space is at a premium, look for wall-mounted soap dispensers. Be sure you have enough empty space beneath it, though, as many dispensers have sensitive infrared sensors.
It's also important to consider where the battery compartment is. In most cases, this is in the base. Although the bases are sealed to stop water from getting inside, it's best not to put the dispenser in a place where it can get drenched with water. Consider placing a counter-style dispenser on a shelf or a counter at arm's reach from the sink.
Different automatic soap dispensers can hold different amounts of liquid soap. If your family is large or the dispenser is likely to be in heavy use, consider buying one with a higher capacity which won’t need to be refilled as often. With smaller families or less frequent use, the capacity isn’t as important.
Another thing to check is how much soap is dispensed each time. Some soap dispensers let you adjust this so you can make the soap last longer. This is also a useful feature for families, as you can control how much soap your kids use so they don't waste as much!
Soap dispensers are usually made from either plastic or stainless steel. Plastic is lighter, and it’s common for plastic dispensers to have a large, clear window so you can easily see how much liquid soap is left.
Stainless steel dispensers are heavier and more solid. They can withstand a lot of use and are easy to clean. Some stainless steel options also have a plastic soap container or window for visibility, but these are less common features.
It's important to wash your hands and keep them clean, but this can also dry them out. Check out these other articles for products your hands will love.
