My oldest boy loves Lego’s and at first, he was hesitant to sacrifice a few of his blocks, but he changed his mind when he started to help make the bottle.
Too many times I knew he just turned on the water (when he needed to wash his hands) and did not use soap, but after we made this together, I knew he was using it.
Here’s a photo tutorial on how I made this liquid soap bottle with floating Legos.
- A dollar store bottle of liquid soap
- Five colorful Lego bricks
- Empty liquid soap containers (to refill)
- A refill bottle of Clear Liquid Hand Soap
- Goo Gone - You can buy it from Amazon here: Goo Gone on Amazon
- A white cloth
I emptied the bottle into two Softsoap containers that I had kept to eventually refill.
Next I washed the bottle and peeled the labels off. I used a soft white cloth to wash it because I did not want to scratch the bottle.
There was an obvious residue left on the bottle so I followed the directions using Goo-Gone. Now there is an amazing product.
BIG TIP: I still could not get the cloudiness off from the front sticker, so I did not wipe off the last coat of Goo-Gone. As you can see from the photos, the bottle looks completely clean of residue.
I began with a layer of the clear refill soap and added a block. We kept repeating this process until the bottle was filled.
As the blocks floated to the top of the bottle, we used a skewer to push the blocks down. We could have just as easily used the tip of the dispenser to push the blocks down, but I found the skewer was very precise.
Easy, cute and another thing done for the Pinterest board!
