Junior hacksaw Cork Drill & wood drill bit Pump from an old soap dispenser Glass perfume bottle, £14.95, Dotcomgiftshop
Use a hacksaw (or bread knife) to remove 1cm from the length of the cork. Using a drill bit, make a hole through the centre of the cork to match the size of the pump tube to be inserted (ours was 8mm). Carefully thread the cork over the tube of the pump up to the top so it fits tightly. Put the pump into the bottle so the cork keeps it snug. You may need to adjust the position of the cork and/or trim the tube so it fits into the new bottle and won’t allow any soap to leak.
