Simple Human Deserves Better Displays

Simple Human's $130 soap dispenser - The perfect tool for dispensing soap touch-free without leaving germs behind. Optimized for effortless, efficient dishwashing with a matching stainless steel caddy that perfectly fits the pump and stores a sponge so it's always at your fingertips. Holds 50% more soap than our standard pump so you'll refill less often. Clog-proof tubing pump ensures a precise and consistent flow, and the silicone valve prevents messy drips. To control the amount of soap desired, you can position your hand up close to the sensor for a little soap and farther away for more. A wide refill opening makes refills fast and easy, and there's a QR code under the lid so you can reorder soap in a flash. It's also waterproof for easy cleaning. Rechargeable with included wireless charger — and one charge lasts up to 8 months. Use simplehuman soap for optimum pump performance. Also works with hand sanitizer.
