Hang on a sec, Dettol. When I do go and "touch a germy soap pump", it tends to be just before I wash my hands. With the soap from the dispenser. Are you telling me your soap alone isn't good enough to protect me from the hazards of your packaging, hence the need for your otherwise pointless motion-sensing gadget?

I'm sorry to say that modern advertisers, however hard they try, will never match the glorious efforts of a hundred years ago:


  1. Also "never touch a germy soap-pump again" is a little ambitious. What if you have to pick it up or move it? Or hold it still while you replace the soap?

  2. Or the batteries. All four of them.
