The Ultimate Guide to Choosing the Right Airbnb Soap Dispenser for Hosts: Essential Features and Options to Enhance Your Guests’ Experience!

Don’t lose money using travel-size shampoo and soaps! After years of using these products, we finally realized how much money we could save going bulk. Keep reading to see our recommendation for the best Airbnb soap dispenser for hosts…

Why You Should Buy in Bulk vs. Travel Size

Buying travel-size amenities is both more expensive and more wasteful. As Airbnb Superhosts, we recommend choosing bulk amenities that you can easily refill in a cost-effective way.

While buying in bulk might seem like a one-size-fits-all approach, the reality is that most guests use a bar of soap twice and then you throw it away before the next guests arrive. Switching to bulk soap and shampoo is more sustainable while allowing you to upgrade other offerings that matter more to guests.

Why Choose a Dispenser Versus Regular Bottles

You might be thinking that buying bottles will give your guests a more customized selection, but Airbnb forums show that many guests find half-used soap bottles undesirable. Using a dispenser is a more professional, more convenient, and more sustainable choice.

Rental Recon Tip: To go above and beyond, you can use bulk products in the dispensers but leave one or two small items like bath salts as an unexpected surprise.

Factors That Influence Body Wash and Soap Dispensers for Airbnb

As shampoo and body wash are two of the most valued extras according to Airbnb, it’s important to ensure ease of access for guests. In choosing the best soap dispenser for Airbnb, these are the most important factors to consider.

Free-Standing or Wall-Mounted Dispensers

Unless you have a permanently mounted soap and shampoo container holder, wall-mounted is the best option. The most stable wall-mounted dispensers require drilling holes in the shower. You can choose dispensers that adhere with some sort of adhesive but they can lose stability over time and fall.

Labeling Options

The best option is a dispenser set with permanent labels. If you choose stick-on labels, they can slide off in the heat of the shower. Be sure to choose labels that have easy-to-read letters and not a complicated script.

Decorative & Functional

If you find shampoo and soap dispensers that are both decorative and functional, consider that a win. We have found the best choice to be a simple design that offers straightforward use.

Notable Alternatives We Also Liked:

Our Top Pick: KUSVADO Glass No-Drill Wall Mounted Shower Soap/Hand Soap Dispenser 

Our top pick for a wall-mount soap and shampoo dispenser is KUSVADO Glass No-Drill Wall Mounted Shower Soap/Hand Soap Dispenser. This attractive dispenser set offers a simple design with refillable bottles. We love the dark bottles because they hide the amount of soap and shampoo inside, making the entire set look clean and inviting.

Ease of Installation

The drill-free technology lets you install this dispenser set without drilling holes. It stays where you place it and can be removed without left-over sticky residue on the wall.

Attractive Appearance

The black holders complement any bathroom design and décor while the amber-colored bottles look sleek and clean.

Quality Materials

While the amber bottles are plastic, they feel almost glass-like. Moreover, the labels are waterproof so they won’t wash away. Our guests say these dispensers look like what you would find in a high-end spa, and we would agree!

Stable & Secure: ITAX-World Shampoo Dispenser

The ITAX-World Shampoo Dispenser for Shower Wall is our runner-up for its stylish and functional design. In particular, this dispenser style is popular with Superhosts like us because of its locking technology which prevents guests from taking the bottles home with them.

Adjustable Height

The adjustable dispenser height can accommodate bottles other than the ones that come with the set. You can use bottles that range from 5.9″ to 6.7″,  while the design is modern and can work with any décor style.

Two Color Choices

The set comes in white with amber bottles or black with black bottles so the two choices will fit almost any bathroom design and color scheme.

OPPEAL.HOSMALL Lockable Shampoo & Conditioner Dispenser

Our guests have loved the OPPEAL.HOSMALL Anti-Loss Shampoo and Conditioner Dispenser for Shower Wall with its three bottles that sit on top of the dispenser.

The patented press technology makes dispensing products easy, particularly for guests with joint problems or arthritis. It is also good for parents who are bathing their children.

Versatile Mount Styles

You can choose between a single mount, a double mount, or a triple mount depending on what you plan to offer guests. For example, the single bottle option would be great for facewash. On the other hand, the double bottle would be great for a shampoo and conditioner combo.

Screw Mounts or Screw-free Mounts

You can choose the screw mounting method where you have to drill holes in the shower surround or the kit comes with screw-free mounting instructions. Since it comes with everything you need to mount the dispenser and bottles, you can choose the mounting type.

Triple Wall Mount Shower Pump

The Triple Wall Mount Shower Pump is a great overall pick for your Airbnb. I love the elegant look of the stainless steel finishes and the clear dispensing containers.

The fact that it features three separate dispensers means you can offer shampoo, conditioner, and body wash. Each container holds 15 ounces, which should be more than enough to get you through several stays. It also features a convenient razor holder on the side, which is a nice touch. 

Rental Recon Tip: Wondering what to put in your fancy new dispenser? Bulk shampoo is our recommendation! Don’t waste time transferring store-bought shampoo from bottle to bottle, only to throw out the extra packaging. Buying in bulk allows you to simultaneously save your money while saving the planet.  Check out our Best Bulk Shampoo for Airbnb article…>>

The Better Living holds a good amount of product and also has three chambers so you can provide your guests with everything they need. It has a good capacity, a simple design, and built-in labels for each compartment.

Cornucopia Brands Glass Boston Round Bottles

Finally, our favorite budget option is the Cornucopia Brands Glass Boston Round Bottles. Our guests love the look of these, although they aren’t as functional as a wall-mounted dispenser. They are glass, so they will be less durable than other options.

There are only two bottles per set, so unless you purchase multiple sets you are limited to just offering shampoo and conditioner to your Airbnb guests.
