I have shampoo in a blown glass dispenser made locally. So far no one has taken it, nor emptied it. Pump bottle of liquid hand soap at sink - again, no one has stolen it yet. Actually, no one has evert stolen anything from here.

Same as Morticia, we use Gilchrist & Soames dispensers, with gallon bottle refills, and clear liquid soap for the sink. We do put little bars of soap out too, some people (like me!) prefer bar soap....

Liquids from dispensers. And I only buy liquids that are clear, even if coloured. Unscented if possible, otherwise almond, so everyone can think it's cyanide :)

Yes, we have little bars, too, because that’s what I prefer.

I still use individual wrapped bars of soap and individual single use shampoo and conditioner bottles. I like them myself.

Gilchrist and Soames.
I've given up on G&S. Used to be able to order 1 wall mount soap dispenser. Last time I tried, they said they have minimum order of 25 dispensers. And soaps I've used for a few years are discontinued. And their hospitality website is horrible. No way to order without talking to them on the phone.

Darn. I usually just email so I haven’t used their website in a while. We put in a big order in 2019. Didn’t need to reorder last year. 😉 I will say don’t order the makeup wipes. The ones I got are completely dried out. You have to rewet them before using which defeats the purpose.

Yes, spaced the holes for bottles in a thicker piece of wood and then sliced off several matching holders. Many of our guest room furnishings are DIY items to fit the space.
You’ve shown pix before of the things you’ve created!

Hello. We installed dispensers in our 4 guestrooms but challenged to find inexpensive, yet nice, products to fill them. I have been purchasing various ones at Marshalls and would like to find products that I can keep consistent. Any suggestions?
Suave products - they have a very nice Rosemary & Mint that gets lots of compliments! It smells like a high-end salon product and washes just as well - for less! The Ivory liquid body wash is wonderful!

Love rosemary and mint! I’ll have to check to see if we have suave in that scent at the store here. I used to get that high end product until they changed the formula. Now it smells like chemicals.
