Automatic Soap Dispenser Hack!


As well as loving to craft, I also love to save money. I wouldn't call myself an extreme couponer, but if I have a coupon for an item and I need it, I will use it...Why not? I think it's silly if you don't!

So today I will share with you one of my saving tips! Over this last year I have purchased a couple of the automatic Lysol soap dispensers. (Actually they were purchased and then I received my money back when I sent back the company the receipt and the mail in rebate, so they were actually free!!!) They are great for little kids... just place your hand underneath, and out comes just enough soap!

One of the dispensers was empty, so instead of buying a refill for $4.99 (250ml container), I bought a liquid hand soap at Costco for $9.99 (3.78L). That means I can fill up the existing container 15 times for $9.99, instead of spending $75+... here's how I did it :)


Buy your favourite hand soap. 


Remove the lid. I used a butter knife to carefully pop off the lid, it does not twist off! 


Don't worry too much if the lid cracks a little where your knife was, as long as the center is intact you're still OK!


Wash out the container and the lid.


Refill.


Push the lid back into place, you will hear a click!


Place it back into the dispenser. Super quick, super easy! 
(took me longer to do the post, lol!)

Happy savings everyone!
