One of the first items that flew off shelves during the first signs of the current global health crisis was hand sanitizer. It’s still rare to find in stores or online, which means seeing it in stock somewhere feels like finding a hidden treasure.
While manufacturers are racing to replace inventory, other companies like skincare brand Peter Thomas Roth are producing their own hand sanitizer in order to combat the nationwide shortage, which will surely go out of stock soon even if it is $10 each.
And while you could just invest in fancy hand soaps to stock around your home instead, sometimes a quick spritz of hand sanitizer will do the trick — if it contains 60 percent alcohol, per CDC guidelines, that is. And that’s why Touchland’s KUB hand sanitizer smart dispenser is so genius and indispensable in times like these where germ prevention is a top priority.
Touchland is known for its cutesy travel hand sanitizer misters, which are currently all out of stock but are available for preorder here, but the brand’s lesser-known tabletop dispenser is perfect while spending more time at home.
The Touchland KUB dispenser is a touch-free hand sanitizer station that’s normally marketed toward businesses or offices, but people are now buying them for their homes too. You can easily use it on a kitchen counter, or there’s an additional wall mount or stand that you can buy, but this auto-dispensing station is a game-changer to staying germ-free around your home.

Not only does the hand sanitizer solution kill up to 99.9 percent of germs and include 67 percent ethyl alcohol, but it’ll help keep your hands soft with its added aloe vera and essential oils. It will quickly clean your hands but won’t leave them dry or sticky. With its smart spray system, each time you reach for a dose, the hand sanitizer is evenly distributed across your hands without using more than you need.
Plus, each solution cartridge will also last you up to 2,000 doses on the low-dosage setting and 1,500 doses on the high-dosage setting, which means you won’t have to worry about buying a cartridge refill anytime soon. And with the HUB’s corresponding smartphone app, you can see the fill level, and it will alert you once the level is low.
Currently available in five colors, Touchland’s hand sanitizer station is small enough to fit anywhere in your home — whether it’s your kitchen counter or desk. At $199, each HUB comes with one cartridge refill, but you can buy individual refills as you run out. And while you can leave it on a countertop for easy use, the HUB’s wall mount and stand accessories are available to shop below.
