Sonic Soap is a touch-free liquid soap dispenser that uses a motion sensor to detect when your hand is underneath the dispenser. This way, you do not have to touch a soap pump, soap bar, or liquid soap bottle in order to get soap on your hands. It refills from the pop-top and has an "EZ-View" fill window to let you see when you need to add more soap. The Sonic Soap is a good way to load up with soap touch-free for a twenty-second hand washing as recommended by the CDC (US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention).
The cost of Sonic Soap is $19.99 and the shipping is FREE!
The Sonic Soap dispenser has an on / off switch on the base. Note, you do have to lift and touch the dispenser to turn it on and off.
This narrow strip of clear plastic runs down the length of the Sonic Soap dispenser. The user can see how much soap is left in the dispenser and when it is time to refill, judging by where the color of the soap is in the EZ-View fill window.
The highlight of this product, the motion sensor senses a handheld under the dispenser. This keeps you from having to touch the dispenser to get soap.
The manufacturer claims that no drips of soap will remain after the Sonic Soap has dispensed one dollop of soap, due to the silicon dispenser tip.
The Sonic Soap is under the homemaker's control. Thus, you can fill it with not only any kind of soap, but you can choose to use it with hand sanitizer too. Face wash is another suggestion made by the manufacturer.
The main highlight of this product is that you do not need to touch it to get soap. With the latest fears of spreading or getting COVID-19, it is important to most people to simply touch fewer things other people have touched. Sonic Soap eliminates the possibility of multiple bathroom users touching a pump dispenser or holding onto a soap bottle and transferring germs that way. The manufacturer's webpage shows with a black light photo where people have touched a regular soap dispenser. Note, the general term "germs" refers to both bacteria and viruses.
The CDC recommends hand washing by wetting your hands, adding soap, and scrubbing your hands with soap for at least twenty seconds. Having a convenient dispenser nearby that you do not have to touch gives people confidence in using it and encourages handwashing.
Seeing soap magically come out of the soap dispenser without touching it is fun for kids, so they want to wash their hands more too!
Upon viewing the easy on-off switch image on the bottom of the Sonic Soap dispenser, it appears that there is a panel on the bottom of the dispenser, of the type that normally encloses batteries. The webpage for the product does not mention the need to purchase any battery. However, this product might require one or more batteries in order for the motion sensor to work.
It appears that soap residue may build up inside this dispenser, and there is no mention of whether the inside is easy to rinse out or clean. Soap residue may adhere to the plastic inside or to the silicon tip. Removing additional soap residue appears to be beyond the scope of the manufacturer's discussion.
The CDC recommends numerous times when it is good to wash your hands. A few examples are: 1) before, during, and after meal preparation, 2) before eating, 3) before caring for someone who is sick in the home, and 4) after diaper changes for a child. The easier it is to get some soap on your hands at the sink during or after any of these tasks, the more likely anyone will be to wash their hands. This makes the soap dispenser helpful.
Do not confuse this with Sonic Soap that is meant for use with a sonic cleansing brush, a beauty treatment and deep cleaner. Generally, a web search will find the product used with sonic cleansing brushes, whereas the product discussed here and made by manufacturer Bell & Howell is a liquid soap dispenser.
The Sonic Soap dispenser appears to eliminate touches used to get soap for handwashing. However, to pop the top to add soap, you need to touch it, and to turn the product on or off you also need to touch it. If the person setting up the soap really wants the dispenser to be entirely bacteria-free, he or she should wipe the top and bottom with an antibacterial wipe after filling it and turning it on. Overall, for a conscientious hand-washer, the best feature may be the ease of use rather than total germ elimination.
You can get two dispensers for less money. The second is priced at approximately one-third of the price of the first. If you take the product page at its word you may decide to use one Sonic Soap for dish soap in the kitchen, for example, and another for liquid hand soap in the bathroom. In that case, this may be a good deal for you.

Great product until it failed. The batteries were fine but battery contacts rusted behind the battery case. Light still lit up but soap would not dispense.
Lasted about 7 months.
