I’m not sure about you, but I wash my hands about a gazillion times a day, which means we go through a lot of soap around here! With four of us living in our house, I feel like we are constantly running out of soap. I decided to try making my own foaming hand soap to refill my empty hand soap containers, and was amazed at how easy and inexpensive it is to make your own DIY Foaming Hand Soap! Seriously, people…it doesn’t get any easier than this!
All you need is an empty foaming hand soap bottle (most of them have plastic labels that will come right off), Castile Soap or Dish Liquid, and warm water.
First, fill your hand soap container with one cup of warm water.
Next, add one tablespoon of Castile Soap or Dish Liquid. I love Dr. Bronner’s Castile Soap in Lavender, but like I mentioned before, you can use any dish liquid instead.
Replace the lid back on your soap container and shake well.
Your soap is ready to use!
Now, how’s that for saving some money and trips to the store to stock up on more soap? I really wish I had known this trick years ago!
