How To Customize A Lysol No-Touch Kitchen Soap Dispenser

Lysol No Touch Square Banner WM

My kitchen has been the target of most of my organizing and tweaking for the last few weeks. The coffee station started the ball rolling and it has felt like a different space ever since.

Over the weekend I decided it was time to make over some of the boring but necessary accessories with spray paint. I painted the paper towel holder and knife block and then spotted my sticking-out-like-a-sore-thumb Lysol No-Touch Kitchen Soap Dispenser.


I love it and just used this video to very easily refill it with a different (and much less expensive) dish soap (Lysol is probably not going to like that but I’m in no way affiliated with them!). However, it’s not the prettiest gadget to have beside the sink.

The perfect candidate for my next spray paint makeover!

I’m familiar with the infamous House of Hepworths’ painted soap pump, but I couldn’t find anything related to the Lysol dispenser so this might actually be an original idea!

I turned off the switch so that I could inspect it without getting soaped and then tried to figure how I could paint the unit without affecting the sensor. There is a sensor at the top by the soap nozzle, but I believe the teardrop shaped window on the front does something, too.

I was about to give up when I noticed that the silver face plate was a completely separate piece. It comes right off – no tools required!

Time to customize!

The hardest part was choosing a spray paint colour. 

In the end, the winner was Catalina Mist. It didn’t disappoint!

Since it was SO easy, here’s the very, very condensed how-to:

Turn off batteries.

Remove face plate, prime, spray paint with chosen colour, replace face plate.

Turn on batteries.

Do you have one of these wonderful dispensers in your kitchen?

I really like being able to wash my hands when I’m cooking or baking without contaminating everything else. I had a No-Touch soap dispenser in my classroom when I taught Grade 1 and it was great because it actually made my students WANT to wash their hands!

I’d love to see what colour (or colours) you use to customize yours!

Thanks for checking out my latest project!

P.S. Since the hand soap version doesn’t have a removable face plate, there’s no reason why you couldn’t refill the bottle of the kitchen dispenser with hand soap instead and then use this in your bathroom, too!
