"Lovely" Soap Dispenser

I found some yummy mandarin soap at Marshall's months ago and had it in my powder room (though I keep no powder in there?). All gone, no more. I couldn't refill it with regular soap, people would be thinking "she got ripped off, this doesn't smell like oranges". Since we have a twenty month old who loves to wash her hands and many of our friends have little ones that use our powder room...and the soap is on a small pedestal sink...the dispenser can't be breakable. So I found the most adorable soap dispenser here. Problem solved. I made my own print on Microsoft Word and took it to my local Staples to turn into a transparency. After a little Goo-Gone, soap refill I already had, and a $1 transparency I love my soap. All for the bargain price of one buck. Oh Yeah!!

Yummy smell, all gone...

No smell, but CAUUUTE!

Simple directions:

  1. Find a soap dispenser you like, that you can see through!
  2. De-gunk it with Goo Gone or something similar.
  3. Make a transparency (on a laser printer...not an ink jet) and trim close to words. Make sure you measure your soap dispenser for the width and height of your artwork.
  4. Roll up your transparency and slide into your bottle, smooth out and position with the pump.
  5. Fill up with soap and you are D-O-N-E!
