Kohler touchless toiletGermaphobes everywhere can rejoice. Toilet flush handles can be contaminated with obvious and less obvious bacteria and germs. In fact, research shows that many people flush toilets with their feet, making the flush handle even dirtier.

Now Kohler has a way around actually touching the toilet-flush handle with any body part. Available in their brand-new toilets as well as in a roughly $100 retrofit kit, the Kohler Touchless Flush allows the mere wave of the hand to flush to toilet, making any home a healthy home. 

Wave your hand. Your home toilet flushes without touching. No muss. No fuss no transfer of germs.
