emoticon I was uncertain about this product b/c I read some negative reviews on Amazon, but when I saw it on sale at Walmart I decided it was cheap enough to try. Love it! EASY to use and clean. I have both scents: cucumber and green tea ~ very pretty! Best of all it is antibacterial soap!

MORE INFORMATION:
You can get refills and keep the dispenser.

    If you are very careful, you can refill the soap bottle. Just gently pry the top off, fill and press the top back on again. I've done it twice now.

    Antibacterial soap is actually bad for you... as a result of its overuse, there are now bacteria that have mutated and become like "super bacteria." It is recommended to use non-antibacterial soap.

    Did you know that you really don't need "antibacterial" soap at home? Usually the ingredient that makes it antibacterial is Triclosan. This chemical goes down the drain and ends up in groundwater and lakes and streams killing off necessary algae. If you use regular soap and water and use friction, you WILL wash off the nasties without damaging the environment further.

    Hi JRBASKIND! The soap dispenser itself is as big as a standard soap pump bottle. I have had it for about a month now and only used about 1/4+. We have a baby so I wash my hands often.

    I agree with RNNURSE90 and DEBRAPANTS. The overuse of antibacterial soaps, detergents and even facial tissues are playing havoc withthe ecosystem and creating superbugs that are immune to antibiotics. Many, many studies have proven over and over again that regular soap and water will have the same cleaning effects as these antibacterials. It is just marketing to our fears and creating a world of Howard Hughes' symdrome.

    I think its worth a try. Thanks.

    It sounds awesome! How often do you have to refill the dispensers? That may be the biggest expense, if it's *too* often.

    I wonder if this is the same/similar to the one I have just bought for Dettol anti bac soap. It works well but I dont use it at all sinks, although I have a dispenser or pump at each. Of course its not at home where you need extra precautions, but at bars , cafes, and restaurants etc that we need some help. For instance, I walk with a stick, and I always take my handbag with me if I go to the restroom while I am out. I have to open the door of the cubicle before I can wash my hands, picking up my stick and handbag with germy hands. Then when I've washed them, I may have to turn the water off, but in any case, I pick up my bag and stick again, and the germs with them. So anti bac soap does not protect you from all but it does help keep a lot of 'nasties' under control. emoticon

    Its a bit excessive. I mean afterall, you wash off whatever germy mess you get from touching the pump when you wash your hands anyway.
