My blog hasn't been created to make money (for me or anyone else), but occasionally I get a product that tickles my fancy that I like to share. I also like to make sure there's something in it for my readers (and there is, if you can make it all the way to the bottom of the post).
Dettol PR got in touch with me and asked if they could send me some a sample of a new product, an automatic hand soap dispenser. To make it fun, they also offered to also send a finger painting kit so we could put their new handwash to the test. Who was I to deny my arty girls the chance to get grubby? Plus as Goosey likes to wash her hands a lot (oh, about 1800 times a day) some new handwash wouldn't go astray in this house.
So, one sunny afternoon this week I set up the paints in the backyard and let the kids go crazy!
Let the fun begin!
Things started off fairly sedately,
but got more hectic and frantic fairly quickly!
Before long everything was a nice green/black colour.
Enter the hero of this story – Dettol No-Touch Hand Wash System!
Magically the soap is dispensed from the holder!
Before long their hands are cleaned, but they want to go back for seconds and thirds to see how the 'magic' soap works.
Skip, ever the cynic, rolled his eyes when he first tried it out, but I've noticed he's been coming back and washing his hands a little more than normal. He was even a little panicked when I turned off the dispenser and he thought it wasn't working. You know, men love a good gadget.
Me? Well, as our house has been germ-infested this week I have been washing my hands a lot. The cucumber splash variety smells really nice and my hands haven't dried out in my germaphobic hand-scrubbing mania.
All the while, I couldn't stop thinking of a lovely girl I worked with whose germ phobia led her to all sorts of acrobatics in the work bathroom to ensure she didn't touch any of the hand washing facilities with her bare skin. She would LOVE this gadget.
Now for the best part. Dettol would love to give five of my readers a No-Touch Hand Wash System. To win, all you have to do is comment below. Entries close 11.59pm Tuesday, 28 September 2010.
