Two ways to make your foaming soap dispenser last longer.
If you’re like me, you love those foaming hand/dish soap dispensers. But they go empty so quickly, and you know you can’t just pour more soap in because it doesn’t work. Fill them with regular soap and hit the pump and it makes an asthmatic coughing sound and spits up a squirt of un-foamed soap.

Here are two tips to make them last longer:
Tip #1: Use your foam soap until the bottle is half empty. Open and remove the top, fill with water, put the top back on, and shake gently to mix. That’s it. You now have a full bottle of soap that will continue to foam.
Tip #2: Ok, so you’ve used all the soap in the dispenser. Don’t throw it away. Open the bottle and remove the top. Now take the same brand of liquid soap and fill the foaming dispenser so that it is 1/5 full. Now fill it the rest of the way up with water. Shake the bottle gently to thoroughly mix the soap and water. That’s it. You now have a full bottle of foaming soap.
Why pay so much just to get a new dispenser each time, or buy a refill that’s mostly water?
