Fun Soap Dispenser for kids


This one might interest you if have kids around. It's a strange new product called SquidSoap. A soap which claims to change your kids’ washing habits for the better by (as the company puts it) ‘Training Tomorrow's Great Hand Washers’. How so? The company claims that most of us with grubby hands are not the ones who refuse to wash them, but the ones who refuse to wash them long enough. So, this soap picks up from where the others left off – when you push down the SquidSoap dispenser, it puts an orange dot on your palm along with the soap. And then you're supposed to keep washing your hands until you get the ink off as well – which is roughly going to take you 15-20 seconds, the average time recommended for a thorough wash.

The soap dispenser is also adorned with orange tentacles that look like a squid, which, the company claims, kids will have fun with. So the next time you're at the dinner table and your kids haven’t washed their hands well enough, you could catch them orange-handed!

I was taught to just sing "Happy Birthday" while washing and when I was done my hands would be clean.
