Hands Off!

Wash To Music

Ever notice how when you send kids to wash their hands before touching the baby, they come back too quickly and their hands aren't looking very clean?

The timers can be used with your favorite brand of soap, so there's no worry about needing a specific brand for refills. The device fits atop any standard brand of liquid soap. You can find these hand wash timers at
