I hate having plastic containers on my counter. No matter how “sleek” and “simple” the design, they look ugly and out of place. But you just can’t buy liquid soaps and cleaning supplies in anything but plastic anymore.
But that doesn’t mean we have to use them that way. I’ve had my eye on these little darlings for awhile, and finally splurged because I needed a little treat –
The soap dispenser pumps only cost me $7.00 for the pair at Lehmans, and they fit on pint mason jars that I already had on hand. They do sell pumps that come with the jars, but I certainly didn’t need the set since I have a corner cabinet full of mason jars just waiting for their day in the sun. I love how they’re matte black – very versatile, so as my decor evolves or I decide to move one to the bathroom, they will still fit in. I’ve got hand soap in the jar on the right, with dish soap in the jar on the left. And an added bonus to having these on the counter is that we can now save a little money by buying bulk containers of soap and decanting what we need into the jar. Because the only thing worse than plastic containers on the counter is gallon-sized plastic containers on the counter!
