I detest plastic bottles of dish soap at the sink. Even though I try to put them under the sink, they end up back above the sink. I love the Chambord soap dispensers that I made for my master bath & powder rooms (I recently switched the pumps from silver to bronze to match the new decor). Why not make one for the kitchen?

Selecting the bottle was more of a challenge this time. The newer Chambord bottles are cheaper and not as elegant.  Besides, I like more of an Italian atmosphere to my kitchen, instead of the French theme in those two baths. A Disarrono bottle was the answer, but I only had the larger bottles in my home. After a quick trip to the liquor store, I had a smaller bottle which was perfect for my kitchen. I poured the new liquor into the dwindling supply of my larger bottle (after pouring some into my glass). Then, I quickly removed the labels and plastic ring from the neck, and rinsed the bottle.

Previously I had bought pumps from BB&B and didn’t want to make a special trip. I took a bronze pump from a disposable soap dispenser and replaced the tub with a longer one (which I actually did ex post facto). It screwed on perfectly to my new dispenser.  While this one is perfect for dish soap, I’d like to find a slightly smaller bottle for the kitchen hand soap

Next time, I’ll make sure that color of the dish soap actually matches my kitchen decor.
