HOW IT WORKS:
BRING A CONTAINER OR BUY A NEW ONE
Bring your own container. We also have a selection of new bottles and jars for purchase. Forgot a bottle? Check out our community donated free bin.
WEIGH IN WITH A SOAPTENDER
Step up to the counter and weigh your container with a SOAPtender before you fill it up.
PICK A PRODUCT
Feel free to ask questions! We can help you pick out the perfect product for your needs. From floor cleaner to pet shampoo to fabric softener—we have you covered!
You can customize anything with one of our many essential oils or mix-n-match products together. Add stain remover to boost your laundry soap power. Add a clay or exfoliant to you face wash. Or, just add lavender to your favorite body lotion.
WEIGH AND PAY
Once you are happy with your products, your SOAPtender will weigh your containers deducting the weight from check in and ring you up in the register.
A NOTE ABOUT REUSABLE CONTAINERS:
All clean containers are welcome for refills. Some work better than others, depending on the kind of product you’re refilling it with.
How do I clean my containers?
Clean containers for reuse with warm soap and water. Dry thoroughly before replacing lids.
What kind of containers should I use?
Containers with wide openings are best for powdered detergents. Creams and lotions work best in jars/containers with wide mouths and secure lids, because they’re easier to clean. Liquids like dish soap and shampoo work well in most any container.
Glass is easy to clean and easy to recycle. Glass containers can be sanitized with high temperatures in a dishwasher or with a light spritzing of 70% Isopropyl alcohol.
Glass jars that had been used for food products—especially tomato based products—can be difficult to remove smells. If smell lingers after washing them with soap and warm water, try filling with a vinegar solution and letting it sit for 24-48 hours.
#2 HDPE plastic containers are ideal for multiple uses. They are sturdy and easily recycled, can be subjected to high temperatures without being affected, and can be cleaned with soap and warm water and/or vinegar. Can be sanitized with 70% Isopropyl alcohol.
#1 PET plastics also work for reuse. Easy to recycle. Not as sturdy as #2.
If you’re not sure what type of plastic it is, it’s usually marked on the container. Feel free to ask us for help too.
