So love the Lysol No Touch Hand Soap dispenser… but hate the cost of refills.
The dispenser works well with kids. All you need to do is place your hand under it and the soap automatically dispenses. We have a Lysol soap dispenser in the bathroom and kitchen. We use a lot of soap in our house so I needed a less expensive alternative than the costly refills.
I knew there had to be a better way to refill the Lysol containers besides trying to pop the lid off the refill container with a table knife. I was always scared of breaking the lid, not to mention, I found this very tricky to do.
Here is my EASY solution…
The Lysol refills cost about $5 each, but my DIY solution costs much, MUCH LESS.
Here is what you need:
1) Soap to refill container – I use Jergens Lotion Enriched Cream Soap 2L purchased from Superstore. The soap is not really thick so it works well in the Lysol soap dispenser. But any soap that is not too thick will work.
2) Ketchup/Mustard Squeezable container – I bought mine from the dollar store. They usually are found in packs of 2.
3) Lysol No Touch Hand Soap Dispenser – When you buy it from the store it comes with 1 refill container.
What you need to do:
1) You’ll need to adapt your squeezable container to fit the Lysol refill container…
You will need to cut the end of the squeezable container on a slant so the soap can be squeezed into the refill bottle. The end of the squeezable container will need to fit into the top of the refill bottle so you may need to scrape or shave off some of the plastic carefully with a knife to make the end smaller.
2) Add soap to your squeezable container.
3) Fill your Lysol refill with your squeezable container. Simply place your squeezable container into the hole on the top of the Lysol refill and squeeze in the soap.
My squeezable container can fit as much soap as it takes to fill one Lysol refill container. So much cheaper than buying the refills from the store. Especially, since we are getting into the cold and flu season and we are always washing our hands!
