Product of the Month: Foaming Hand Soap Dispenser

Cuisipro Foam PumpThe most common questions we get relate to where we shop and what we buy. So when Kim and I put some extra time into updating our site we paid special attention to updating A Green Routine’s Amazon Store and we added a “Product of the Month” feature, which you can find in the sidebar.

The items we feature monthly are products we own ourselves and truly enjoy; we’re not paid to endorse these products.┬áMost of the items in our store are also products we own ourselves, though we do add similar products for variety. For example, I’ve added a few Honeywell thermostats to the shop because they have different features, but I only own one of them.

Our first product of the month is the Cuisipro 13.2-Ounce Foam Pump. We were thrilled to find this a few months ago because reusable foaming hand soap dispensers have been slow to hit the market. In August when I wrote an article about making your own foaming hand soap I couldn’t find a single dispenser I liked enough to recommend, so the only solution I offered was to reuse a dispenser from a commercial foaming hand soap.

We like the Cuisipro Foam Pump because:

  • it comes in six fun colors.
  • it has fill lines for your soap and water, so you don’t have to pre-measure.
  • it has a suction cup on the bottom to help keep it from slipping around.
  • it’s appropriately sized for your kitchen or bathroom (many others I find are much too large.)
  • it’s dishwasher safe, so you will have an easy time cleaning out the dispenser when change the scent of your soap.

The Cuisipro Foam Pump helps you go green by cutting down on the packaging waste caused by purchasing products in single use containers and you’ll be using less product because foaming hand soap is 4 parts water to 1 part soap. As an added bonus, you’ll save money by mixing your own hand soap.

Get your creative juices flowing, you’re now free to invent a scent for you hand soap to delight your family and house guests.
