Beads Washing / Public Clean Sanitation

Beads Washing
Beads Washing

Users usually have no control over the amount of hand soap used when using the soap dispenser. The hand soap also tends to drip onto the sink after they use, resulting in a waste of hand soap, the extra cleaning work and also a waste of water. The concept of the soap dispenser is to encapsulate the hand soap in a 'bead' capsule with a water-soluble film. At the same time, the box underneath allows the beads to be recycled. This allows for effective dosage control, avoiding the wastage and extra cleaning work.
