Don't you hate the moment... After pushing and pushing that soap dispenser trying to get the lasts bits of soap out of it, you realized no matter what, you just need to go and REFILL it?!
Well, like you and me, there are tons of people who hate that task. And perhaps, this post might encourage you to do it sooner rather than later. ;)
I saw this
idea like six months ago on a Facebook post. I didn't follow the link (bad I know!). I took a mental snapshot and saved the picture in my mind. When the soap dispenser got empty this time, I once again, went online to try and find the source of my inspiration. Well, I really didn't remember who it was, but these posts HERE and HERE made almost the exact same thing.
Anyways, as much as I hate the task of refilling the small container every month, that wasn't the main reason why I wanted to get rid of that pesky soap dispenser.
That disgusting picture was my main problem: The soap kept on leaking...
And LEAKING! >:(
So, my plan was to buy a plastic tube, bring it from the big container all the way up to the pump and... Problem solved. :)
Buuuut, Mr. RLC didn't approve of that plan because First, the soap could dry out, and Second, the kids could have knocked over the bottle.
He went ahead and retrofitted the container's cap for the plastic tubing to fit nicely through it.
He used needle nose pliers to twist and remove the little tip from the middle.
And, using a ¼" drill bit, the hole in the green cap was enlarged.
The plastic tubing was cut to size and connected to the pump. It had a snug fit, we didn't use tape to hold it in place. The other end, the one going to the soap container, got a slanted cut.
-Before buying the plastic tubing, make sure you know the size you need, better yet, bring the pump with you to the store.
The first time you try to get the soap from the pump takes a little while, but after that is just normal.
The mister did a spectacular job fitting the tubing through the cap!
And hey, I'm now feeling like I have an endless supply of soap... And no leaking!! :D
