Reusing Plastic Soap Dispensers


Bronze Post Medal for All Time! 169 Posts

After being married for 54 years, I finally decided I needed some "store bought" liquid soap dispensers. I found some attractive ones for my master bath at Target. I have several of the store brand bottles which I am way too stingy to throw away, so I am going to use them for shower gel and shampoo. This will eliminate over use and spilling thereby making the bottles last longer. I am really frugal in my heart, even though I get nutty at times.

You sound as if you are like me. I use the little hand soap dispensers on the kitchen sink and fill it with hand softening dish soap. Then I can squirt it in the water without having to pick up the soap bottle. I am from DFW area of Texas. I live in TN now.

I might go ahead and splurge on a nice storebought soap dispenser for this use also.

Thanks for posting!

As I was reading this post, I thought of how much the person is like me. I found a certain dispenser shape that I liked that held liquid soap from Target and have kept it. I have refilled them many times now with cheaper hand soap as well as other things too. I still have them all over my house.

Great minds think alike, huh? Thanks for sharing and keep up the good thriftiness!

I love this tip. With two grandchildren living with me that love the expensive bath gels this will certainly save me money. I will use this for their bath gels and shampoos. Thanks,

Great idea. Thanks for sharing. This will save on the amount we use as well as space as I usually buy the large size bottles that don't fit well on my shower shelf!

It sounds like there are a lot of us that think alike. I also don't like to throw out those nice soap dispensers. I decorate mine with seashells and put them in my bathroom. (I sent one in awhile ago.) Actually, you can decorate them with any type of theme to match. I also buy in bulk and put in my showers and label them with big letters so I can read it.

I have a decorative one on my kitchen sink that looks nice but is very convenient. I also make them for little gifts and fill with hand soap. Everyone seems to like them. Thanks for your post.

I do think that this is a good thrifty tip.

But to be honest, MartyD, I think that anyone who's been married for 54 years has a permanent free pass to buy themselves whatever "store bought" goodies catch their eye, whether it's "thrifty" or not. Seriously.

Congratulations on being both a model of thriftiness and a model of making marriage work for the long haul.
