I started writing instructions for you like this:

You will need to hold the piece with your left hand and turn 3/4 of the way to the right with clippers. Then wiggle it until pops off. You’ll be glad I changed this project!  Farmhouse style DIY Soap Dispenser

Above are my old soap dispensers. Gloppy with goo, an unreadable label, and water spots that make the sink area look messy. Messy all the time. UGH!

The dispenser bottle was way to small. Put is this way, it would fit the travel regulations for the airlines. I refilled the dispenser twice a week for years!!

On top of that, I had two!

My first DIY…gone bad!

This project I thought would be a good idea. The plan was to separate the bottle insert and threaded top.  Then insert the top into a mason jar seal.  I tried using wire cutters for scissors. Starting cutting the bottle top {or clipping} here. Oops cutting there would have been better. Then none of the special plastic nuts I scoured drawers in Home Depot worked. A rubber band around the threads didn’t work.  I did have a forstner bit the perfect size. a forstner bit the perfect size.  But destroyed the seal while trying to drill the hole.

I chunked the project and started over.

After tossing my great idea, I do that often, I looked on Amazon.

Look what I found!  Mason jar soap dispenser pumps.

Steps to add a pump dispenser to a mason jar

  1. Open the mason jar.
  2. Add the tube to the pump.
  3. Check the depth of the tube attachment. For a pint jar, I trimmed 1 1/4 inches from the tube.
  4. Add the liquid soap. Screw on the top. Done!
  5. Screw on the top.

Now I have a pint of liquid soap ready to go. Plus a pint of lotion for my old lady hands.

Save the ring top to make pumpkins in the fall.

I’m beginning to think if you can’t find it on Amazon it doesn’t exist.
