An Overview On Soap Dispensers

In most households, a soap dispenser rests beside each sink. Sure, you can leave your soap in the container it came in, but that can get costly. Instead, you could buy a large, pump-less, container of soap and provide soap for every sink in your home, likely for months.

But to shift to that budget-friendly option, you’ll first need to invest in soap dispensers that you can refill. Simply set the dispenser up and refill it whenever it starts to get low. For best results, you should thoroughly clean each dispenser, including the pump, every time you refill it, if not more often.

When it comes to choosing a soap dispenser, there are a few things to consider. Dispensers will come into contact with moisture on a regular basis, so make sure the pump won’t rust over time. The bottom can also slip around in the moisture that pools underneath, so a nonslip surface will come in handy.

But overall, the design of the dispenser will likely be a top consideration. A dispenser with a mason jar design will work well with your farmhouse décor, for instance, while decorative glass will set your dispenser apart from the many others on the market. There are so many different designs, you can easily find the best look for your home.

DYWM Fun Fact

You don’t have to buy liquid soap in the store. There are multiple recipes online to help you make soap on your own, using ingredients like coconut oil, olive oil, potassium hydroxide and liquid vegetable glycerin. You’ll melt your oils and mix them, then dilute them using boiling water. You’ll need goggles and gloves to protect yourself, and you can melt the oils in a slow cooker. Once you’ve bought all the ingredients, you can make large batches of soap, saving you money over time. Plus, it’s a fun project that will allow you to customize your soap to your own preferences.

The Soap Dispenser Buying Guide

  • With many refillable soap dispensers, getting the liquid inside can be a problem. If the neck of yours isn’t wide enough, a funnel can help you avoid a mess.
  • Soap dispensers aren’t just for soap. You can also use them for essential oils, lotions and any other type of liquid you want dispensed through a pump. However, if you plan to use it for thicker liquids like shampoo or conditioner, look for a dispenser with a wide uptake tube to prevent clogging.
  • For kitchen soap, it may come in handy to buy an all-in-one dispenser that will hold dish soap, hand soap, sponges and scrub brushes.
  • Some soap dispensers can leak. Some are built with a gasket to prevent this, which will help keep your countertops mess-free.
  • Larger soap dispensers can hold more liquid, requiring fewer refills.
  • A dispenser with hands-free operation provides a level of convenience. Wave your hand over the sensor and soap pumps into your hand. However, keep in mind that these dispensers require batteries that you’ll have to change periodically.
  • If you’re using your dispenser for sensitive liquids like essential oils or herbal remedies, amber-tinted glass can keep sunlight out, protecting the internal contents from degradation.
