CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - Roll up your sleeves! My picks for "Best Products of 2010" all revolve around housecleaning. At first, I thought Lysol's No Touch Hand Soap system might be a waste of time and money.

However, a Stoddard county nurse and a Perry county teacher both used it for a few weeks and found it was quite handy.

Both say it would help stop the spread of germs since you don't put your fingers on the dispense button, but do note, the motion sensor works....maybe a little too well at times.

Kim Johnson said, "It's sensitive, so if you're going to move it around too much, make sure you go behind the sensor."

"Teach your kids to use it correctly and you'll have less mess," said the teacher.

A $10 for a starter kit and $3 to $4 for refills, the Lysol No Touch dispenser gets its hands on a good grade 'A'.

Meantime, here was the shocker of 2010: Shout Color Catchers truly did keep red dye in a pair of brand new shorts from running onto a white shirt!

"We did the worst case scenario," said my tester.

Kathy believes this would be great for use in small loads you might not have time to separate or with items that have stripes with colors that may run.

Remember, read the directions carefully, adding an extra sheet if needed and using cold water.

Now let's clean something old.

"You gotta remember this dishwasher is 18 years old," said my next tester Connie Clark.

Dishwasher cleaners have been around for awhile, but the Finish Cleaner revamped itself, claiming to clean your entire machine---no wiping required.

"It does look cleaner. it did a good job."

I'll say....the 18-year-old machine on soft, city water came out looking spiffy. Finish cleaned my six year old washer with caked on gunk from our county well on hard water. My dishes even came out with less spots, after I used this product.

It earns an 'A', sharing the title with all of these three products as the "Best in 2010," and closes the door on this Does it Work test.
