Many people prefer liquid hand soap to classic soap bars, since it’s easier to dispense and rub onto your hands. The downside is that it’s easy to dole out too much soap at once– bring your hand down a little too hard, and you’ve got liquid soap overflowing your palms, going to waste.
Luckily there’s an easy solution, one that you probably already have sitting in your desk or a drawer somewhere. A single rubber band and maybe 30 seconds of your time are all you need to fix this issue.
Secura Touchless Soap Dispenser
Buying an automatic soap dispenser like this one is another possible solution.
Once you’ve got your rubber band in hand, wrap it around the neck of your soap dispenser until it’s slightly tight. Give it a test tap to ensure that the pump can’t press down all the way; if the pump can’t press down fully, it can’t ever squirt out too much hand soap at once.
If you don’t have any rubber bands lying around at home, most types of hair ties will serve just as well.
