Take the pump out of the bottle, rinse off the shaft and dry it. Then you're going to firmly grip the shaft just under the collar of the pump and firmly twist to the right. That will pop the pump open, put the pump back in the bottle and you're ready to use your new product.

Thereof, how does a lotion pump work?

In a lotion pump the product is dispensed up through a dip tube. Whilst the product level in the container slowly decreases, the space is replaced by air coming back in through the top.

Similarly, why does my soap pump not work? If your soap dispenser still isn't working, you may need to do a little more work. Unscrew the pump reservoir from the spout if you can. Inexpensive pumps that come on shampoo and soap bottles are often fused and don't come apart. Reassemble the pump and clean it out by pumping hot water through it.

How does a soap dispenser pump work?

The soap dispensing pump relies on both the components of the bottle and air suction to draw the fluid upwards and fight against the law of gravity. When you release the actuator, the piston and spring return to their resting position, sealing off the housing chamber to stop liquid from flowing back up into the bottle.
