If you don’t trust us, check out a few of these reviews:

  • “This is very handy, elbow grease saver set.
    The entire set of brushes includes everything you may need to scrub or polish. All you need is a drill to attach it to and you are set. Longer extension allows you to mount attachments farther from the drill if you have to. Bristles are hard, not soft to get the job done. For those that do not have a pressure cleaning machine, you can use this set to clean mildew from a grout as you can see on one of my pictures. There is an attachment with velcro type of pad which allows you to attach those included multi-color coarse pads. It’s a great multipurpose attachment set. Good quality product !!!”
  • “I have tried everything to get the track on my glass shower door clean to no avail. I also have grout that is disgusting so I decided this might do the trick. I was afraid I would get a “why did you buy this” lecture from my husband but I got just the opposite. My husband was surprised that the set came with all the attachments and adaptors to easily change out brushes and pads. I scrubbed the shower door and I was happy to see that the scrubbing pad got all the scale off plus cleaned the white caulk of dirt discoloration. I haven’t tried it on the kitchen grout yet but I am sure it will work; get some good degreaser and scrub away. The drill provides more power than I can muster so cleans better than any manual cleaning I can do. Husband says its good for white letter tire cleaning too. There are enough attachments to use for many purposes. I expect to find many uses I haven’t even thought of yet.”

This Trash Can Has Over 5,000 Five-Star Reviews

Trash cans: the unspoken hero of the kitchen. Right? Mostly? Definitely, if you’re talking about this one particular trash can on Amazon.com, which users have given five-star review after five-star review.

What’s so great about the iTouchless 13-gallon sensor trash can? Let’s check out a few reviews to find out.

This person loved it so much they came back to update their review: “I bought this to use as a diaper bin and it’s been a true blessing. Even with it filled to capacity we only smell the nastiness for the brief moment the lid is open. Otherwise, you’d never know the horrors that awaited inside lol! It’s been running strong on the same batteries since I bought it. Bags are easy to replace and the removable bag ring is fantastic. With the top back on the bag is secure and completely concealed. I’m not sure how much the charcoal filter helps, but my main concern was odor when the can is closed, and for that purpose, it works perfectly! As an added bonus the unit looks fantastic!

Update: I’ve been using this daily for six months or so and it is a workhorse! Still running on the same batteries I purchased when I received it and blocking diaper odor just as effectively!

Update: So, after working perfectly since last November, a couple weeks ago the lid decided to give up on me suddenly and completely! I figured the batteries had finally died, so I swapped in a fresh set and nothing happened. No light, no movement, nothing at all. I almost decided to just write it off, but figured I might as well try customer care. I sent them an email with a screenshot of my original order and a description of the problem. To my pleasant surprise, I got an email back within 24 hours with an incident number and instructions to call in for service. I called in thinking they were going to want me to send in the lid, but they surprised me by saying their policy had changed and I just had to pay a $9.95 service/shipping and handling fee and a new lid would be sent out. They didn’t want the old one back at all. Since it would cost more than that to just ship the original lid in to them I had no issue paying the fee. About a week later I received my brand new lid! I really can’take say enough about the quality customer service I received from iTouchless. It was all very simple and because of that I’m leaving my review at five stars!

If you found this review to be helpful please indicate so. If there’s something missing, or you’d like additional info, don’t hesitate to ask. I write these in the hope that it will help other buyers make a decision with so many similar products available for purchase.”

A wonderful trash can: “I just love my new trash can. I absolutely love that it is touch-free. I do not have to step on any pedals or open any lids with messy hands. Touch-free has been around for faucets now finally I have my touchless trashcan. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE. I also love that the bag does not get suck in the can when you remove it when it is full. There are air holes in the bottom that allow the can to vent so that it does not create a vacuum and you can remove the bag easily. Love this feature. There is also a ring at the top of the can that holds the bag onto the can to prevent the bag from slipping down inside the can (how cool is that?) There is a charcoal filter to help keep odors down and the large top opening is big enough that I can fit an empty gallon jug of milk or a folded pizza box into the can. It is a great garbage can. The stainless steel design makes cleaning the outside a breeze. It came right on time and was packaged well. Just insert your ā€˜Dā€™ sized batteries and you are ready to go. If you do not want to go with the battery option, there is a wall adaptor you can purchase. This is a great all-around trash can. I am giving one to a friend for a baby gift as a diaper pail.”

A real conversation topic: “Works great. Impressive to my guest when they see how it works.”

Unexplainable love: “I can’t describe how much I love this garbage can! It has made my kitchen so much nicer. When I got it, it was smaller than I expected and worried I would be taking out the garbage more often. However, it seems to hold as much as my old trash bin and I take it out much less frequently because you can’t smell anything when the lid is closed! It seems like such a funny thing to be excited about, but my roommate and I LOVE it!”

If those don’t convince you, there are about 5,000 more out there.

The iTouchless 13-gallon and 2.5-gallon set will run you about $97, but it could be worth it.
