Umbra Touch Waste Can : Needs better design

I bought this so it would be easy to clean. I bought this so it would be easy to clean, and it is, but it’s too small with the lid. Because of the swing of the lid, i can’t get a big, empty body wash bottle in there. I like the way it looks just fine, but you can only fill it about half way with the lid and it’s not big to begin with. And i’m not ocd enough to want to clear out the bathroom trash every day.

This is a good bathroom tumbler. It’s gray, and you can see if it’s clean. It’s plastic and will not break. It’s the right size for water to rinse your mouth after tooth brushing, or for taking pills. It’s a traditional bathroom tumbler that is now hard to find. We have a whit and a gray one, so that we can tell them apart.

Can’t go wrong with this trashcan. . The trashcan is adorable and modern looking. I have one placed in the guest bathroom. I use a clear liner and the lid fits nicely on top to ensure the liner stays in place. If you buy a liner that is too small it may be pulled to tight and keep the lid from flipping likes its suppose to.

Excellent umbra touch white soap dish, which is compact, light, unobtrusive, well-made, and inexpensive. This umbra touch white soap dish is compact, light, unobtrusive, and well-made. The ridges on the bottom lift the soap up, and prevent it from becoming adherent to the soap dish itself. The soap dish represents a superb value at the price point at which it is being offered. This umbra touch white soap dish is outstanding, and i give it a five-star rating, along with my highest recommendation.

  • Perfectly nice, but much too small
  • Great organizer for makeup, too!
  • Very minimalistic

Not really good for one-handed dispensing or for kids. I bought this with the intent of putting it in the kids’ bathroom (our kids are 5 and under) for them to use. Sometimes they’ve had problems working the standard soap pumps, and right now we’ve got an automatic “hand sensing” dispenser in there for them. This is kind of a challenging pump to use for a number of reasons. For one, most pumps you can operate by keeping your hand under the spout and pressing down on the top with your thumb. This dispenser pretty much requires that you use one hand to push the entire top shell down, while you keep your other hand under the metal spout. Second, the force required to depress the pump is somewhat high. You’ve got to really press to get it to work, and that might not be easy to do with wet, slippery hands. Third, the pump is a bit unstable. The base tapers in at the bottom, so while you’ve got the sink and the pump all wet, the slippery soap remnants and the water you just added mix with the large amount of force you need to work the pump and the narrow base, and you’re likely to end up tipping the pump over into the sink.

This toothbrush holder completes the look in my daughter’s bathroom. + it looks very modern and classy. + i love the smooth matte finish. + it’s durable and does not show scratches. + it fits regular and kid sized toothpastes and 2 manual toothbrushes. – it cannot fit the spin type toothbrushes. – there is no hole in the bottom so water collects in the tubes and gets gunky after a while if not cleaned weekly. – it’s hard to clean inside the tubes and in between them on the outside. – i wish it came with a space for the flossers.

Beautiful and convenient for lotion, have not tried it with soap. I am writing this review almost two years to the day from my purchase. I went in to order a couple more and noticed the recent poor reviews and felt compelled to share my experience. I made my purchase on july 2, 2012 (i purchased one in black) and have used it daily ever since it arrived. I haven’t had any bad issues with mine. I use it in my living room with lotion and i’m purchasing the next two in different colors for my desk at work so it will look more professional than the original bottles lotions & such come in. For the new ones i’m going to use one for lotion as i do at home and one for hand sanitizer which i find very necessary in the workplace if i don’t want to get sick from all the sickness constantly circulating through the company.

Bought because metal dispensers kept rusting and reviews (at the time of purchase) indicated it would be less likely with this pump. Used it for a few months and threw it away because i’m tired of the leakage. There is always “soap snot” hanging off the tip and i keep finding little petrified pools of soap on the counter that are difficult to remove. I know i could wipe off the tip after each use, but i don’t want to. What works better than anything is a “disposable” dispenser in a caddy of this type: michel-design-works-lavender. I got mine at kohl’s but this is basically the same thing. When i use up the soap that came in it, i’ll remove the labels and use my own soap refill.

Great organizer for makeup, too. I am always looking for new ways to organize and save space in my tiny bathroom, and these are a great option. I actually decided to buy two holders, which fit on the sink ledge next to each other, and filled some of the smaller circles with my morning staples: coverup, a few eyeliners, eyebrow brush, etc. Looks great and saves time – what more could you want?.

But the size is clearly stated and it is perfect for my small bathroom. This is such a stylish trash can. Some people have complained that is is too small, but the size is clearly stated and it is perfect for my small bathroom. It is sturdy, the lid works perfectly and the lid fits over the top with enough depth that is doesn’t fall off.

Basic, attractive bath tumbler. Basic bathroom tumbler – nice size for just rinsing after brushing, drinking small amounts of water, etc. We purchased two to avoid accidentally breaking glass on granite, and they fit our decor well. Their color is very true to the image posted on amazon (a mix of blue and green, despite the ‘surf blue’ description). The exterior surface is very slightly ‘roughened’ (for lack of a better term) just past smooth for easy gripping. If one of the available colors matches your decor, the tumblers are an attractive bath accessory.

Perfectly nice, but much too small. There is nothing wrong with this waste can – i like the shape and color and it is well made. It is, however, really small and this is exacerbated by the flip lid. I was attracted to the lid because i thought it would be nice not to display the bathroom garbage to ourselves and guests, but in reality it actually reduces the usable space in the can because once waste reaches a certain height (not very near the top), the flip part no longer works because it just hits the waste. I also didn’t anticipate when i bought it that i would have to bend down to use instead of just throwing something in the can as i am used to doing. Bottom line: it is well made and attractive and does what it’s supposed to do, but i recommend thinking about how you plan to use it and whether the size and flip lid, as i’ve described, are what you really want.

      It’s better than i expected. It’s better than i expected. I wanted a toothbrush holder and didn’t have anything in mind but when i saw this one and saw it held the toothpaste too i thought that was a nice feature. I bought the umbra wastecan in the same color and love them both. The toothbrush holder is a nice size and is sturdy.

    Why has it taken this long for someone to design something to hold brushes and toothpaste?. Very clever, extremely neat, and hope it eventually comes in a myriad of colors. Right now, it’s in our laundry/powder room which we use when we don’t feel like climbing stairs to brush our teeth.
