I spend a lot of my time in my kitchen and because I am constantly handling food, I wash my hands a lot. We have a built-in soap dispenser at the kitchen sink. Because I use so much soap, we would have to refill the soap container frequently and it wasn’t easy to do.
First, refilling a small container can be difficult with a small opening. The liquid soap would often end up spilling. Second, you have to twist and turn to get under the sink to unscrew the bottle from the dispenser.
With that being said, who has time to constantly refill their soap dispenser and go through acrobatic maneuvers?
Great Soap Dispenser Hack
My husband had the best idea. He placed a jumbo container of liquid soap under our kitchen sink and hooked it up to our built-in soap dispenser with a long flexible tube. Genius!
If you don’t have a built-in soap dispenser, you are going to want one! This simple hack has been a great convenience in the kitchen. You can get up to 800 hand washes from one jumbo bottle of soap!
3 Materials Needed for Built In Soap Dispenser
It’s so simple to do if you already have the hole in your counter top. If not, see if you can add one and purchase a built-in soap dispenser. Personally I want this hack at every sink in my house!
At a hardware store such as Home Depot, buy some clear flexible tubing, 1/4″ in diameter. Buy enough to reach from your soap dispenser to the floor of your cabinet underneath, approximately 3 feet.
Place the tubing over the soap dispenser tube by 1″ or more.
Feed the tubing through the hole in the sink to the soap dispenser.
Place the tubing into a large container of liquid soap under the counter.
Continue to pump the soap dispenser until soap comes out. That’s it! It will be many months before you have to replace the soap container.
