Somewhere in your domicile, you probably have a bottle of liquid hand soap depicting flowers, tropical fish, or citrus fruit, but it's an entirely different kind of visual association we're after. This GIANTmicrobes soap dispenser ($10) is shaped like a gigantic, cutified rhinovirus - a critter responsible for common colds. We wouldn't go so far as to fill him with antibacterial soap (overuse is a problem, and regular soap works just fine anyway) but we can't think of a better reminder of what all that hand-washing is actually for. Cute rhinovirus also available in plush.
