A mounted dispenser allows for your shower area to look organized while also providing a polished look. Installing a dispenser is actually a very simple process that only takes about 24 hours to complete from start to finish. There are certain precautions that will make installing your dispenser a breeze and save yourself a lot of time and frustration.

You should position the dispenser in an area that is easy to access and works as the best space saver. The first thing you should make sure of is that the surface that you are mounting the dispenser on is completely clean.  This includes all dust, dirt, build-up or grime that often can be found in the nooks and crannies of shower walls.  This kind of buildup can be a result of some cleaning supplies, body oils, and loose skin particles that build up naturally over a period of time. You may use cleaning supplies, but be sure to rinse the area thoroughly.  If the surface is not cleaned completely, the silicone adhesive cannot securely attach itself to the surface and instead will attach itself to the dirt. This will result in an improper bond and the unit may fall.  A clean surface is mandatory in order for the dispenser to be installed properly.

Once the area has been cleaned thoroughly it is important that you mount the dispenser with all of the supplies that are included with the unit. You must use the double faced tape as well as the entire tube of silicone adhesive. You may be under the impression that there is no need to use both, but the tape is unable to support the weight of the dispenser once it is filled and likewise the silicone adhesive takes 24 hours to completely dry so the tape is necessary to hold up the empty dispenser as the adhesive cures.  Both of these materials are crucial in the process of the dispenser being mounted. The omission of one of these items results in a poorly mounted dispenser.

It is important to wait the full 24 hours before filling the dispenser. The silicone adhesive is designed to be able to hold the dispenser in place once it is filled, but it has to be completely dried before it is effective. Filling the dispenser before the silicone adhesive has dried may result in the unit falling.

A dispenser works as a great accessory to your shower, but should be installed properly to ensure that you are getting the most out of this product. It is important that you follow these guidelines so that your dispenser is mounted securely and has no chance of falling. If you do each of these steps, your dispenser will definitely stay in the place that you put it and you will be able to enjoy an organized and clutter-free shower.
