I found a brand new kitchen sink soap dispenser at a Rehab store, made it fit on to a top of a mason jar, if I can find an old, blue Mason jar with a zinc lid, I'll transfer the pump to it.

don't you like these? I make them out of my old blue Mason jars...save all the pumps out of lotion, etc. and cut to fit. my zinc lids have glass liners...try to use just the broken ones and remove it. could probably drill thru it with proper bit but haven't tried that. I like them for liquid soap in bathrooms too. I have a real "aversion" to plastic packaging! LOL

Here's a little saying that fits my DH...I read this somewhere..."...the only thing handy about my DH is that he's nearby...". Describes mine perfectly. Ugh. ifantail is one in a million!

How is the pump attached to the lid so that it stays put? Thanks, Lou

don't know what ifantail does, but I drill a hole the size of the tube that sticks down in and it fits tight enough to stay...guess if it needs it, a little E6000 glue or similar would work
