  1. I’m a pump pack fan b/c of its sheer convenience. With flip-tops or upside-down bottles, you have to actually pick up the bottle and fiddle with the lid to get anything out. With pumps, turn on the tap, one pump and presto – you’re halfway to clean hands. With regular soap bars, you get soap scum on the basin plus the water-softened soap underside which I hate.

    I have no problem refilling the pump bottles either – it’s very straightforward and not at all difficult. If you like the convenience but are bothered by the short straw, just buy a decent pump bottle at any homeware store where the straw goes all the way down to the bottom. It’s possible – I’m sure I’ve seen them around.

    To counter your pump-packaging rage, check out this clever packaging contraption (in-built instant ramen strainer): http://images.google.com.au/imgres?imgurl=http://images.pingmag.jp/images/title/thoughtful-design.jpg&imgrefurl=http://pingmag.jp/2008/09/25/thoughtful-design/&usg=__KmjonI0LQbJHPbOtHuwsr3UsyfU=&h=346&w=470&sz=185&hl=en&start=1&um=1&itbs=1&tbnid=bjZ1y2V89UyKzM:&tbnh=95&tbnw=129&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dconvenient%2Bpackaging%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26client%3Dfirefox-a%26sa%3DN%26rls%3Dorg.mozilla:en-US:official%26tbs%3Disch:1
