B&M is selling a £7 ‘touch free’ hand sanitiser dispenser and people are desperate to snap one up

WASHING your hands and sanitising with antibacterial gel are some of the most important things you can do to help prevent the spread of coronavirus. 

And now you can create your own hand gel station in your home thanks to B&M’s censored dispenser, which costs £7. 

The nifty gadget is battery-operated and dispenses gel for three seconds. 

It lights up when in use and claims to be a “safer way to sanitise hands” as you don’t have to touch a pump to release the gel. 

The dispenser is able to hold up to 300ml of sanitising gel or soap and has an auto infrared sensor to detect when hands are below. 

You can move the touch-free device anywhere in your home or office desk at work as it is said to be easily portable. 

A savvy shopper spotted the device at B&M and shared a photo of it to the Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK group. 

The picture has racked up over 1,000 likes, with one bargain hunter writing: “this would be handy to have in the house.”

Another added: “I need something like this! And one I can attach to the wall.”

Coronavirus is understood to be spreading through droplets from coughs and sneezes.

So touching surfaces where these droplets may have landed means you could easily pick it up.

Public Health England has launched an awareness campaign reminding people to wash their hands when:

  • You get to work or arrive home
  • After you blow your nose, cough or sneeze
  • Before you eat or handle food

If you need to use an alcohol-based hand gel, you need to ensure you use it for 20 to 30 seconds, according to the World Health Organisation.

Health and Social Care Secretary Matt Hancock said: "We all have a role to play in stopping this disease and that’s what this expanded campaign is all about – making sure the public knows exactly what they should be doing to keep themselves and others safe.

"Washing hands regularly is the single most important thing that an individual can do.

"Public safety remains our top priority. The government and the NHS are working 24/7 to fight this virus.”

We shared how Brits may be limited to 6 for Christmas this year if coronavirus rules continue into 2021.

And Health Secretary Mr Hancock warned MPs that the UK was on the brink of a second Covid peak.
