Soap dispensers are an economical solution to any bathroom or kitchen. These dispensers can be refilled with soap so that you don't have to purchase a new disposable soap dispenser each time. Proper maintenance is required to ensure that the dispenser continues to work. Dried and clogged soap dispensers can result from not refilling the container frequently enough; this is the most common reason for a soap dispenser no longer functioning. Unclog and flush the dried soap to fix a broken soap dispenser.
