If I have to look at one more plastic soap dispenser with waves or vanilla sticks on it, I might just pass out. So I did a little research and found this super easy DIY online. I made a few changes to the method, to make it a little easier.
What you’ll need:
- Mason jar
- Hand soap with dispenser
- Silicone or Glue Gun
- Pair of tongs (small)
Remove the lid and the inner plate of the lid, that should be loose.
Use the hammer and nail to punch small little holes in a circle, that will fit the top part of the soap dispenser lid. And use the tong to pull out the middle and bend sharp edges towards the bottom:
The hole can rather be smaller than larger, and you can make adjustments accordingly. If you made the hole too big, you can just add a metal washer at the top (available at your local hardwear store) to cover the hole.
Make sure the soap dispenser fits. You might have to cut a piece of the pipe at the bottom so it fits too.
Line glue along the edges of the hole and the soap dispenser using your gluegun or silicone gun:
Leave overnight to dry.
Pour soap into the jar, and reassemble the jar.
And that’s it! No more plastic or ceramic soap dispensers to cause a sore eye in our home.
