Editor’s note: At the time this As Seen on TV test was performed, we were not able to find Soap Magic in stores. However, it has been brought to our attention that Soap Magic can now be found at Walgreens, Staples, and other retail locations.
The soap dish can get pretty nasty in the spring and summer months, and even liquid soap with those hand pumps can be hard to use when you have a handful of mud.
That's where the "Soap Magic" hands-free soap dispenser may come in handy. But could it make the dirt "disappear like magic" in our "As Seen on TV" test?
The Soap Magic manufacturer says it will work with any liquid hand soap, any liquid dish soap, moisturizer or hand sanitizer, as long as it's not gritty. It's really pretty simple to use. You have a top that you pop off and a hole in which to pour the liquid soap, dish soap or hand sanitizer. There's a minimum amount you have to put in and there's also a maximum line. So, you just put this hand soap in the dispenser and seal the top back on. On the bottom is the on-off switch and you can also have it go all the way over to chime that makes a noise when you're using it.
There’s a sensor, so when you put your hand underneath the Soap Magic it triggers the soap to dispense. You have to prime the pump, so what they tell you to do is to put your hand under the nozzle and leave it there until you hear the motor stop. You have to repeat this process three to six times until the unit starts dispensing, and it comes right out.
If you're looking for a quick and easy way to wash up, the Soap Magic works like magic and we'll give it the thumbs up.
The Soap Magic runs on four AAA batteries, which come with it when you buy it.
Right now, the Soap Magic is not available in stores, but you can buy it online from Bed, Bath and Beyond, where it costs $20 plus shipping and handling.
