Helping Hands Soap Bottle Instructions August 22, 2008

Over the summer, one of my most popular blog posts was the one where we made soap bottles for Mother’s Day at our ward’s Enrichment meeting.  One reader asked me where she could get a copy of the instructions, and I thought it might be easiest for me to post them on my site.

I had no instructions, so I created my own.  There may be better ways to accomplish the finished product, but after making 75+ bottles, we figured out pretty quickly what works and what doesn’t.  (For example:  funnels?  Not so helpful.)  If you have further questions, feel free to ask them in the comment section below.  Here is a PDF version of the inserts:  Mother.  Also, I have a template for the sayings in Microsoft Word, so if you’d like to add a personalization, I’d be happy to e-mail it to you.   Just leave me a request in the comments.

Helping Hands Soap Bottles

I bought the bottles from Industrial Container Supply.
Here are the codes to ask for:
B32221 (bottle)
DP111E  (pump)
When I bought them in May, the bottles were 43 cents and the pumps were 36 cents, so when you figure in the cost of soap and transparencies and ribbon, the total cost was about $1.75, and that was an over-estimation.  Very cheap, very easy.
I don’t know where you’re from, but if you’re in the Salt Lake City area, you can drive to ICS.  They are located at 1845 S. 5200 W, in West Valley.  If you’re not in the area, you can order from their website or over the phone, and they’ll ship it to you.  http://www.industrialcontainer.com/
I didn’t have instructions;  I just “winged” it.  You want clear soap (tinted is okay), but I would stay away from hand sanitizer.  The alcohol in it eats off the lettering.
The ladies in my ward made this project really hard (a lot harder than it needed to be), so let me give you the easiest way to do this:
1.  Trim your pump.  (They are too long to fit in the bottle, so you’ll need to cut it in half.)  ICS has already notched one end for you, so pull the straw off from the pump and cut it from the top, leaving the decorative notch at the bottom.  Reattach.
If it’s still a little too long, don’t worry– if you use gentle force, it will curve itself at the bottom of your bottle.
2.  Cut your transparency.  You’ll want to cut it just inside the lines, so none of the black shows.
You’ll want to use standard, copier-friendly overhead transparencies which should be available at an office-supply store.  (I had oodles leftover from when I was teaching, so I just used those.  Maybe you have a teacher in your ward who would share some with you?)  They need to be copied, though.  The image needs to be burned into the acetate.  If it’s just printed on, like with a computer printer, the soap breaks down the ink and it starts to come off.
3.  Roll your transparency from side to side (right-side-up) and push it into the empty bottle.  It will unroll itself.
4.  Tip your bottle so the transparency is at the front of the bottle.  (If it falls to the back, the pump will cover up the words when it’s inserted.)
OVER A SINK, gently pour the soap into the bottle, using its weight to hold the transparency in place.  If you need to adjust your transparency, use the pump straw to guide it into place.  DON’T OVERFILL!
5.  Insert the pump into the bottle and twist on.
6.  Rinse any soap drips from your bottle, then dry.
7.  Add decorative ribbon and accents.  Glue them into place, if you desire.
This project is so versatile!  My parents are giving them as neighbor gifts this Christmas, and we tried it with a color copy on a transparency.  It turned out really well.

    Super cool. Will actually try this, as well, for Christmas gifts. Thank you!

  2. Rachel Says:

    You could also buy the clear sticker stuff and print your wording and attach it to the outside of the bottle, right? Very cute idea!! LOVE IT!

    This would also be a great idea for a Y.W. activity…I think I’ll pass it along to my girls’ leaders.

  4. Marci Says:

    What are the odds? Just this morning I signed up to make 13 of them for our Super Saturday in September. Each of those will cost $3.50 each, so maybe I’ll bag it and do it your way. It’s such a clever gift- thanks for the tips.

  47. Wendy Says:

    I am so glad you posted this idea. It is so easy and cute. BUT, a word of ADVICE if you are going through the website mentioned. When I ordered ONE bottle, the shipping was $7.92! They can not qoute you on shipping ahead of time. That makes it very pricey to order through them if you do not live in the area. If you do live in the area, it is perfect. I will be searching for another bottle, maybe at Michael’s or WalMart.

  49. Gwen/Joelle Says:

    We actually recieved these in our ward over Christmas and decided to do a little spin. A relative is getting married in our ward and for our present to the new couple we decided to find some cute “love” sayings and we are going to put a saying in each bottle, have a different color of soap (12 kinds, one for each month) and then tie a ribbon and towel to each one so they have “love” soap for the entire first year.

  50. Kelly O. Says:

    hello,
    I am finding this much later than most that have commented but i have been looking for a way to do this for a while! Thankyou! So I have the photo copy option on my printer but it would be the same ink so should I get it done at a proper photocopy place?
    Could you please e-mail me your templates? I would so appreciate it! Thanks again!

    Also, my sister-in-law made these soap bottles at our family reunion and when we added the soap the words dissolved. Do you need to use a special soap? She had the transparency printed at a print shop.

  92. Jennifer Says:

    I love this idea! I want to make them for everyone for Christmas. Now I need ideas of what to do with them. Any good gift basket ideas?

    • Kemi Says:

      You could always throw the soap in a basket with a couple of washcloths (get them cheap at Sam’s Club or Costco) and a hand towel, or some bath salts. Maybe a votive candle or two.

      Or you could stick with a “hand” theme and add lotion, cheap stretch gloves and some nail polish.

      What a fun idea! Good luck with your baskets!

  109. Mary Dalfonso Says:

    I received this wonderful soap bottle for Xmas last year and would like to make some as co-worker and neighbor gifts. I too as many others before me would like the templates of the sayings for the soap bottles. Also a copier works better for the transparencies than a printer correct? Thank you in advance, Mary

  110. Liz Says:

    Can you email me the template for the clean hands soap idea! Great Christmas present thanks for you helpful hints!
    omyhana@juno.com

  111. Chris Says:

    Would it be best to get the template copied somewhere like Kinkos or would a home copier/printer be ok? After reading some of the posts where they say the soap dissolved the words, I’m a bit worried on how I should print the transparencies.

    • Kemi Says:

      Copy it on a regular copy machine. It can be at Kinkos, the library, a school, etc., just as long as it’s a copy. Printing on a printer (even a laser printer) won’t give you a permanent image.

  112. Julie Says:

    By the way, to help anyone trying to make these, the bottle code above has and extra “2” in it… it’s B3221. This is a great idea!
    Thanks

  113. Sarah Says:

    Can you send me an up-dated version of the template? I have an older one from a friend and haven’t been able to open it. I like how you wrapped small ribbons around the tops of your bottles.
    Thank you!

  114. Angie Says:

  121. Tami Says:

    I hope you haven’t forgotten about me. Could you resend the email. I couldn’t open the first one and I’m sure by now I’ve deleted it.

    On a different note, is the ward doing any gatherings for Christmas? I’ve been sick lately and we haven’t made it to church in awhile.

  122. Jane Healy Says:

    I would love to get the template from you—do you mind? Also, where did you get colored soap? I just saw the Softsoap at Costco and it is clear. Any ideas on how to color the soap to make it more festive? Thanks.

  145. Brittany Says:

    This is so so cute. My employer’s son sold these for a fund raiser and I thought to myself … I can make those. So I googled and this came up. So thank you so much for posting this. I wondered if you could send me the Word file so that I can personalize some. Also, do you just take a copy on paper to a copy place to have them put on transparencies? You had mentioned not to use a normal at-home printer. Thanks again … I’m excited to do this project. They’re going to make great gifts.

  155. Lindsay Stalter Says:

    Could I also get a copy of the template? I recieved one lat year and have thought all year that this is what I will do for my neighbors this year. Thanks for all your work! I was just looking at the one I recieved and wondering how I was going to make it work. A template is EXACTLY what I need right now!!!1

  156. Susan Says:

    I have a quick question about the project: Did you ever try having the bottle nearly full of soap BEFORE putting in the plastic sheet? I am just wondering if this would work. Our RS president figures it would be cheaper to buy pump soap for a dollar with the soap already in the bottle. I am just not sure if the plastic would unroll properly (not to mention having to remove existing labels). If you have experience with this, I would appreciate your advice.

    Could I also request a copy of the template? Many thanks! This a super cute idea and loved by lots:)

    I was hoping to see if you have the template for Helping hands. I did this last year for over 30 of my co-workers, such a big hit some have asked for help in doing it themselves. I had a wonderful young lady from church get the supplies and do all the prints, so I am in need of a templet or two. This little gift has touched a lot of hearts. Thanks for the idea.
