Filling Foamy Pump Bottles


This is our Table Top Foamy Pump Bottle, which joins our other foamers.   The biggest enemy of the foaming mechanism is water, so don't over fill!  If you overfill, or submerge in the bath or wash basin, water can enter the mechanism chamber rendering the pump unusable.  I have had many of my foamers in use for over a year, so it's definitely wise to follow this recommendation!

 You can find other tips and usage info on our Usage and Information on Using our Foamy Pumps Page.

 Gather together the bits and bobs you have decided to use.  You don't need to opacify, colour or fragrance your liquid soaps unless you want to.  Note that if you are pearlising the soap using our Liquid Pearliser less is more!  If you use too much (I use 1/2%) it can settle in the bottom of the bottle - you can also warm the distilled water so that it helps it disperse more evenly.

Note:  Cold Process soap made "liquid" by soaking shreds or bars in water is NOT suitable for foamers and will ruin the pump mechanism.

 Now just follow the pictures:

If you created any bubbles in the liquid soap during mixing, a quick spritz with Isopropyl Alcohol fixes this.

Screw on the lid and you are done!

If you are posting foamers you will need to tighten the lid mechanism.  However, do pop in a note advising the recipient to loosen the lid before use.  If you don't loosen the lid the pumping actual will create a vacuum and the foamer won't be able to pump!  Alternatively you can ship your liquid soap in a separate bottle, with instructions for use or a link to this page.
