How-To: Customize a Soap Dispenser

Soap Dispenser Title

In our kitchen, we’ve always had those boring and inexpensive soap dispensers. So when our last one broke and we had to get a new one, I decided to make it a little more appealing.

This project is super simple and only took me five minutes at the most!

Soap 1

What you’ll need:

  • Hand soap dispenser (I got mine from Target for $0.79)
  • Custom vinyl decal
  • Goo Gone Spray (Optional)

First I took the front label off of the soap dispenser. It left a sticky residue, so I pulled out my Goo Gone Spray and a paper towel and it took it off easily. Then I washed it with some soap to make sure it was clean and dried it thoroughly.

Soap 2 & 3

I peeled back the transfer tape (sticky paper with red lines) making sure the decal is sticking to the transfer tape.

Soap 4

Once it was completely off of the paper, I put the decal on the soap dispenser where I wanted it to be. I pushed down firmly and peeled the transfer tape up, leaving the decal on the hand soap dispenser. TIP: If the decal is still sticking to the transfer tape, put the transfer tape and decal back down and rub it and try to lift again.

And there it is! Super easy and it adds a little something extra to my kitchen. If you are interested in making your own custom vinyl decal check out my Etsy shop. You can pick from a lot of different colors to match your kitchen. I picked the first letter of my last name for my design but you could design your own cute or funny decal! These decals would work on more fancy soap dispensers as well!
