How to Refill A Lysol Hand Soap Dispenser

Home / Articles / Blogs / How to Refill A Lysol Hand Soap Dispenser

I’m sure many of us have a Lysol Hand Soap Dispenser around the house.  There were thousands given away by Lysol a few months ago and you can buy them super cheap with the $5 coupon that is available. They are great to have, especially in the kitchen! But the problem with these dispensers is once you have run out of soap it costs $5 or so for a refill!

I work around that issue by refilling my soap dispensers with a less expensive soap and it works perfectly. Here is a quick tutorial on how you can do this too!

Step 1

For this step you will need your empty soap dispenser, a butter knife and your favourite brand of liquid soap to refill it.

Step 2

Use the butter knife to pry up each of the sides of the soap container. It may take a little force but it will come off. The first side is a little more difficult but the second side should pop right up. There are 2 clips that hold the lid in place. It is best to pop up the lid from the sides not front and back to avoid breaking these clips.

Step 3

Refill the container with your soap

Step 4

Press the lid firmly back into place. Again, it may take a little force but shouldn’t be difficult to do.

Step 5

Re-insert your refilled cartridge back into the dispenser!

That’s all there is to it! I’ve refilled my containers a few times already without any issue :)

    Thanks. I got one of those give away samples. We really like it. I shall refill the way you do or drill a hole. I will drill a hole in my Swifer Wet Jet…..make my own concoction of vinigear and water.

  2. Andrea

    Do you know if you can use the liquid foaming hand soap to refill?

    • savealoonie

      I wouldn’t recommend using the foaming soap as they usually need a special dispenser. The Lysol isn’t designed to create the foam.

    Thanks for the tip! Seriously! I refused to go buy another refill so mine have been sitting under my cupboard because I didn’t think I could refill it. I should have known better :D

  5. Pam

    Awesome I am going to try this I always wondered if you could refill them yourself.

  6. TLD

    Exactly what I was planning to try – thanks for the tip! Glad to know it will work :)

  7. Sophie

    Thanks for the tip! I was really surprised how quickly it was empty so this will definitely help cut costs!
