Rubber Band to Save Soap

To make liquid soap and hand sanitizer go further, I tightly wrap a rubber band around the neck of the pump so the pump doesn't go all the way down. This helps control the amount being used per pump.

Great idea. I purposefully don't push it all the way down, but this will be great for the kids, I appreciate you passing this on. Thanks!

This is a great idea. I've already put it to use. I didn't have a rubber band handy, but I did have a twist tie. It worked too!

I'm like Marmacat, I barely depress the dispenser at church. Thanks for the reminder, I need to do this for the church's dispenser! Jo from OH

Great idea! Since I am the "soap hog" in the house I need this reminder.
