Soap Magic Hands-Free Soap Dispenser

These days, everyone knows that washing your hands is the best way to prevent the spread of viruses and disease. Jyl Andrews is a self-described germaphobe and hates having to share the soap dispenser.   "All kinds of germs all over the place," she said, "and I'm also a pre-school teacher so I'm always telling people to wash their hands."

The Soap Magic motion activated soap dispenser claims it will keep things cleaner by squirting the soap in your hands touch-free.   

The set up was easy. Just add the four AAA batteries. Jyl liked that the batteries came right in the box and wished everything came with batteries.  Then just add the soap. The directions say don't use thick soaps or ones that contain granules. Then just turn it on.

After several attempts to prime the pump, the Soap Magic would drop a dollop in Jyl's hand everytime she put it under the spout.  She was impressed.  "I like it," Jyl said.  "I think it would be great for myself in the kitchen, great for the kids. I like the chime because you know the kid are washing their hands."

You can also turn the chime off if it bothers you. Jyl thought it would be perfect in the bathroom and the kitchen.  Soap Magic works with dish soap, sanitizer gel, shampoo and lotion.

At just $20 retail, Jyl said she would get one for every room.  "I would give the Soap Magic two thumbs up."

We have also tested the Simplehuman Sensor Soap Pump, but it cost more than twice as much and gave our tester some problems.
