Review : Squid Soap

I have recently wrote three posts on Potty training, top tips, Equipment and night time.  This is my final instalment in the series and it is about teaching children to wash their hands.  I wanted to teach my girls early the importance of hand washing.  I felt it important to include with potty training, as I think it is the perfect time to teach hand washing.

Squid soap is the perfect way to introduce hand washing to children.  It is a rather simple concept, but one that works.  Children press to dispense the soap, upon doing so an orange ink dot it placed on their hands.

In order to remove the ink dot they must wash their hands.  To see it in action here is my eldest using squid soap [My youngest is in the background asking for a turn]

Squid soap comes with a rubber toy which the girls have had lots of fun playing with.  I have seen some creative uses for these on pinterest too.  

I have had squid soap since April and the ink has not yet dried out.  Another thing to note about the ink is that my daughter did get it on her clothes yet it came out easily in the wash.

Squid soap is available to order from Ocado for £1.99, if you purchase a bottle readers of this blog can send proof of the purchase to and you will receive another bottle free.  I also have a giveaway for 2x family packs of squid soap [4 squid soaps in a family pack].  Giveaway ends on 18/08/14 at midnight GMT.
