Yes, it does. The kit comes with the amber glass jar shown in the photo. This Hand Wash bundle is the perfect way to get started refilling right away!
The amber glass jar holds 8 oz. of soap. The entire dispenser measures 6.5″ tall with a 2.6″ base diameter.
After extended use, the tip of the nozzle may get a bit clogged with soap residue. Simply insert a pin or toothpick into the tip to remove any clogged soap.
We recommend you use the liquid hand wash within 3 – 4 months. Do not dissolve the entire bar if you will not use up a gallon of liquid hand soap within that time. Cut the bar in sections to make less. Half bar = 64 ounces water. Quarter bar = 32 ounces water. Eighth bar = 16 ounces water. Sixteenth bar = 8 ounces water.
Two years. After two years, the oils in the bar may start to break down and become rancid (aka won’t smell as great) but the hand wash will still be effective. Once dissolved, we recommend you use within a few months.
Great question. It’s not actually ingredients in soap that kills germs is the molecular makeup of soap that does it. Simply put, the soap attaches to the pathogens on your skin and they rinse away with the water. The molecular make-up of soap is why soap is so effective at removing germs from your skin.
OPTION 1: Makes enough liquid to fill the dispenser twice.
Cut the bar into 8 equal parts.
Slice the long way first. Then cut the bar in half two times on the short side. That will give you 8 equal pieces.
- Drop one part (about .35 gram) into 2 cups of water.
- Let sit until dissolved. About 2-3 hours.
- Fill the dispenser, twist on the pump, and dispense as usual.
If you like a more bubbly hand washing experience, use less water on your next batch.
OPTION 2: Cut concentrate into pieces and dissolve as needed.
Cut the bar into 16 equal parts.
Slice the long way first. Then cut the bar in half on the short side. Then cut each half in half twice. You will have 16 equal pieces. It’s ok if they are not exactly the same size… we won’t tell anyone 🙂
Fill the dispenser with water just above the curve in the bottle to leave room for the dispenser. Drop one piece of the Lavender Hand Wash Concentrate into the bottle, twist on the pump and let the hand soap concentrate completely dissolve. Dispense as usual.
The piece of concentrate will dissolve within a couple of hours. No hot water, no stirring or mixing required.
It is that simple to make your own refillable all-natural, plastic free foaming hand soap!
Do not dissolve the entire bar if you will not use up a gallon of liquid hand soap within 3 – 4 months. Cut the bar in sections to make less. Half bar = 64 ounces water. Quarter bar = 32 ounces water. Eighth bar = 16 ounces water. Sixteenth bar = 8 ounces water.
Yes, it can as it’s made with all good plant based and natural ingredients for happy skin, no matter what body part you use it on.
Thank you for asking. Yes, it can. We’ve had many customers give positive results using a pumper of their choice that is not a foamer. Other people do not like it. Because there is such a variety of pumpers on the market, we can not guarantee your pumper will work as you intended. It is always best to refill and use something you already have but keep in mind, we recommend foaming pumpers because of the thin consistency of the liquid soap once it is dissolved.
