I have been wanting to do this DIY for a while now, but every time I googled the directions, I got flustered by the whole “need a drill bit” instruction. C’mon now. Like I always maintain, power drills and DIYs do not mix well for me. Now, I did have to sacrifice some quality for my stubborn method, but it was easier, and it works. My hands are clean!
You can choose to paint your mason jar – if you do I recommend spray paint, it goes on smoother on glass jars – but I chose to keep mine clear to monitor soap level!
- Mason Jar with non-glass lid!
- Soap pump – I recycled mine from a soap dispenser I bought at Dollarama
- Super glue *optional
- Straw *optional
- Soap *not so optional
- Clean mason jar if dirty
- Cut a hole in the lid (I used scissors to poke the initial hole, then twisted the scissor blade to make it larger and rounder). The hole should be as big as the width of the soap dispenser tube.
- Make sure soap dispenser tube fits into the mason jar, if its too long, trim the tube, make sure it isn’t too short though!
- Fill mason jar with soap – best part of this? you can buy those litres of refill soap vs. the more costly individual bottles
- Screw lid back on, insert tube! Now if its not very sturdy, you can super glue the pump to the lid.
- Tie straw around bottle.
- Pump, pump!
Take that, drill bit.
