SquidSoap Review

Having two toddlers in the house means we get through a lot of hand wash, especially as Harrison is potty training. Luckily, both of the boys love washing their hands, but I know it will only be a matter of time before hand washing becomes a battle. That’s where SquidSoap becomes useful!


This hand wash comes in a really funky bottle, with a friendly floatable (and removable) squid. We had Sam the Sailor. It looks bright and cheerful in the bathroom. The bottle is see through so you can see how much soap is left.

What makes this product special and unique is the ‘ink pad’ on top.


When you press the pump down, a small ink mark is applied to your hand, which then disappears once the hand has been washed with the soap and water. The thinking behind this is that it motivates children to stay at the sink long enough to wash their hands properly, and remove the ink mark. It takes 15-20 seconds of washing to remove it, which is apparently the recommended hand washing time.


The soap is a lovely fruity citrussy scent, which reminds me of the smell of Starburst sweets. The only problem is that one pump releases a lot of soap, more than necessary for small hands, and I can see us getting through the bottle rather quickly!

A great, innovative product from SquidSoap

  1. The ink mark is a great idea πŸ™‚ I’ve not seen this product before but will look out for it now.

    1. Sadly I don’t think you can buy it from shops yet, only online. I’m waiting for them to get back to me to let me know if its stocked anywhere!

  2. I think that’s what they’re thinking is,makes them wash their hands for a good length of time, and a bit of novelty helps as well! X

  3. Cool! I love the novel top – I can imagine my kids would love it !

  4. That’s very cute. I struggle to STOP my kids playing with the soap though. They make loads of bubbles together and half the bottle ends up down the sink within a few days! πŸ™‚

  5. We’ve been trying this out too and my son loves washing the dot from his hands. It’s a simple, but very effective way to get children to think about how long they wash their hands for. #TriedTested

  6. I really love the idea of the ink mark. I think that will have Cameron washing his hands a lot. I will definitely pick some up when I see it in the supermarket.

    Thanks for sharing
