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
