Mini Weekend DIY Project

Our kitchen sink has this little soap dispenser that came with the faucet, and I hate refilling the thing even though I like using it.  To refill it, you have to awkwardly climb under the sink and unscrew a small plastic container, and it’s even awkwarder trying to screw the thing back in.  I’ve always been the one to refill the dispenser, but WifeGeeding decided to do it for the first time and broke the bottle.  Oddly, Lowe’s and Hope Depot don’t carry a refill bottle, and right before looking for one online, I got this idea.

I had some leftover tubing from an old project, and I’ll be danged, the ends fit snugly on both the soap dispenser and the soap bottle from the store.  So as you can see, I just positioned it upside down under the sink, and now I shouldn’t have to refill the soap as often and it should be much easier.

    That's pretty awesome. Good thinking!

    …and why were you spray painting under the sink? 🙂

    Now that's what I'm talking about.

    Good thinking! Your picture doesn’t reveal if you put anything underneath to catch potential leaks, but if you didn’t I would recommend some sort of catch basin. It will be a long time before you have to look at that again and if it has a slow leak you could damage your cabinets before you realize.

      Full Disclosure: After taking the pic I did place something underneath to see if there would be a slow drip, I just didn’t want to included it in the pic because it wouldn’t look as bad ass. And even though the tube fit really snug on the soap bottle end, I added a little Goop (clear caulk like stuff) just in case.

    If Professor Shoelace can produce a YouTube video, then I ask why can't Professor Kitchen-Sink-Soap-Dispenser [ which has a nice ring to it] put together a video than can potentially change the world?
