As we all take stock of how to keep our homes clean and our families safe through the COVID-19 pandemic, one thing returns to the top of the best-practices list: washing your hands. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says "keeping hands clean is especially important to help prevent the virus from spreading."

To make pandemic matters worse, we're nearing flu season, too. That makes frequent and proper handwashing all the more vital to our own safety, and to the safety of those around us.

So while you're stocking up on hand sanitizer, buying masks, and sanitizing everything around you, don't skip over a touch-free soap dispenser for every sink in your house.

For many months this year, hands-free or touchless soap dispensers were sold out or priced so high they weren't reasonable to purchase. Now, however, as companies are restocking their supplies and developing new products, the dispensers are coming back to stores.

In fact, two of our favorites hands-free soap dispensers are on sale right now.

Secura 17oz / 500ml Premium Touchless Battery Operated Electric Automatic Soap Dispenser

Buy it: Secura Premium Touchless Battery-Operated Electric Automatic Soap Dispenser, $26.49 (originally $37.99);

We originally chose the Secura Premium Touchless Soap Dispenser as a top pick because of its large 17-ounce capacity and stellar 4.4-star rating with more than 9,000 reviews. It can also be mounted to a wall if sink or cabinet space is at a premium. You can control the volume of soap, which is helpful for dispensers in kids' bathrooms.

Right now, this soap dispenser, which comes with a two-year warranty, is marked down 30 percent to just $26.49. You can even save 10 percent or $2.65 more by selecting the coupon.

"My 2 year old can now wash his hands with less assistance. Comes in handy and I have a peace of mind knowing less germs are being spread with the motion activation," one reviewer wrote.

Hanamichi Soap Dispenser

Buy it: Hanamichi Touchless High-Capacity Automatic Soap Dispenser, $28.48 (originally $37.98);

A second dispenser from our list of best touch-free soap dispensers is also marked down right now — Hanamichi Touchless Soap Dispenser. This dispenser, which is discounted 25 percent to just $28.48, was a favorite because it can be used for soap or hand sanitizer, and you can adjust how much is dispensed, from 0.5 to 3 mL.

With more than 1700 reviews, this dispenser maintains a 4.3-star rating and is a favorite among reviewers for its ease of use and quick response. One reviewer wrote, "Sensor doesn't take much to activate after your hand is under the spout."

With flu season coming and the ongoing pandemic, a hands-free soap dispenser is just one step, but an important one, to keep everyone in your home safe. But act fast — these could sell out, or the price could go back up any time.
