Lysol Touch of Foam Hand Soap – Worth The Money? Yes, but…
As a Bzzagent, I recently had the opportunity to try out a free sample of new Lysol Touch of Foam Antibacterial Hand Wash in my home, and I really liked it. Not only did I like it, but so did my husband. Men don’t usually get wildly excited about something as trivial as soap – so that’s saying a lot. Per the name, this is a hand wash that foams when dispensed, in a manner similar to shaving cream but much more light and airy. It’s actually so light that it sticks to your hand even if you flip it over, as seen here:
I’ve tried similar soaps before, but this one is better. Other foaming soaps are too thin and don’t produce enough lather. Have you ever added water to the very end of a bottle of soap to prolong it’s life. Come on – fess up, we’ve all done it. That watery result is what I’ve experienced with other foaming soaps, but not with Lysol Touch of Foam. It foamed and lathered, and it did both really well. My other point of applause was the fact that because the foam is light and airy you don’t deal with the dried soapy gunk that usually forms on regular bottles of hand soap clogging up the spout.
I said “Yes, but…” didn’t I? Lysol Touch of Foam is great, don’t get me wrong – but hand soap is just not something I’m particularly passionate about. My husband won’t let me cheap out on toilet paper – and I don’t argue with him because I can understand the argument for wanting something cushy to wipe with. I personally can’t make the same argument for spending more on hand soap if you don’t have to. It’s something I’m going to buy the cheapest version of, even though I think soaps with special features are a bit better. It’s just not a household item I’m willing to spend more on, especially with things like toilet paper fighting for my wallet’s attention.
Thankfully though, there are sales and coupons, and because of both I’ll likely purchase Lysol Touch of Foam Hand Soap in the future. I really try to not spend more than $1.00 on hand soap. I’m pretty sure that some combo of deals and discounts will allow me to hit my price point in the future. So – my assessment is that Lysol Touch of Foam Antibacterial Hand Wash is worth the money, but…wait for a deal.
