After using my canning jar soap dispenser for several weeks I decided to make a few more.
I needed a new dispenser for my downstairs powder room. I found a cute jar at a yard sale and spray painted the metal lid with white spray paint. I bought a bottle of foaming soap at the dollar store so I could use the foaming pump. I dumped the soap down the drain (yucky smell), recycled the empty bottle, and used the pump for my new, homemade dispenser.
I refilled the bottle with Dr. Bonner's mint Pure-Castile soap. I used a 1:6 ratio of soap to water. My bottle of Dr. Bonners will last me for years!
I tried adding a few drops of liquid food coloring to make it a light blue, but the dropper malfunctioned and I was left with a darker than desired color. Oh, well, it still works fine.
I couldn't find a second cute jar so I just used an Atlas canning jar I had on hand to make another dispenser for the master bath. I spray painted the metal lid and added the soap mixture.
This time I did better with the food coloring.
Notice the bad caulk job? And the ugly paint? And the cheap faucet? This bathroom is in dire need of a makeover. Think I can move it up on the Hubby-do list?
