When we decided to redo the half bath, one of the many things we got rid of was the soap dispenser. We had one from target but it seemed to rust from the inside out so it had to go. I guess we could have just bought a bottle of hand soap and left it on the counter but we can never just let things be easy so I made one out of a mason jar instead. My total cost for this project was whatever we paid for the hand soap because we had an extra jar laying around the house.
I’m sure there’s an easier way to do this but I drilled a bunch of little holes in the lid and then used tin snips to cut out the size I needed.
Then, I took the pump from the plastic bottle and squeezed it into the hole for a snug fit.
I’ve seen some tutorials use glue but maybe since the foaming pumps have an extra piece, mine felt secure enough in the hole to leave the glue alone. Also, I forgot all about how I was supposed to use glue and by then I was over it.
I dumped the soap in the jar, screwed the lid on, and plopped it on the counter. Pro tip: do not plop the jar – it might break. Try gently setting it down.
Voila! Mason Jar soap dispenser.
