DIRECTIONS FOR SOAP BAG (WITH DISPENSING TAP)
(Scroll down to see directions for soap bag WITHOUT tap)
#1) DIRECTIONS FOR SOAP BAG WITH DISPENSING TAP
Remove soap bag from box. Postition it at edge of sink (or edge of counter/table).
Tap can rotate independently. Simply rotate tap to desired position.
Make sure tap is facing down. Rotate as neccessary. Open tap and dispense as desired. (Tip: for faster dispensing, place hand on top of soap bag to
add some pressure to bag.)
#2) DIRECTIONS FOR SOAP BAG WITHOUT DISPENSING TAP
Leave soap bag in box. Open flaps and place box next to sink (on counter).
Cut away smaller flap closest to sink (see picutre above).
Use heavy duty scissors, shears, or a cutting instrument such as a utility knife.
Now position spout at the very end of the box over cut flap.
Be sure to unscrew the top and remove.
Grasp the small flap at the opposite end of the box (opposite the cut flap). Slowly elevate rear of box
by lifting the box by this flap. One end of box will touch ground and other end will be slightly elevated. More tilt = faster pour.
Capture soap that pours out spout in wide mouth pitcher, cup, or vessal. Pitcher is ideal.
Lower box when
enough soap has come out to fill your container.
As the level of soap decreases in the bag, you will have to tilt the box even more.
You may need to place your
other hand on bag as you pour out the remaining soap
(see above picture).
You can even remove the bag and directly
pour the soap into your container. Do whichever you feel more comfortable with.
Store remaining soap in bag in shipping box...or just completely empty bag into another vessel.
