It’s been years since we’ve used bars of soap for washing our hands. Mostly because we have boys that use the soap and they leave it looking so disgusting no one else wants to use it. We switched over to liquid soap pump bottles. These bottles work great. A pump or two of soap into the hand and no messy bars of soap. Next we found foaming hand soap. Wow! That was even better. A nice pile of foaming soap that cleans just as well as bar soap. And once again no messy soap bars left.
We really liked these pump soaps but sure didn’t like the prices. We usually buy a huge bottle of hand soap we get at the dollar store and refill the small pump bottles. Much cheaper than buying new bottles of soap every week. Also, it’s environmentally friendly reusing the soap bottles.
I checked Pinterest and found an easy way to make our own foaming hand soap.
Foaming Hand Soap – DIY
To start you need a foaming soap pump & bottle. I used an empty Bath & Body works pump & bottle.
Put about 1 tablespoon liquid hand soap into the empty bottle.
Add warm water to almost fill the bottle – leave enough room for the pump to be inserted.
Gently shake the bottle to combine the soap & water.
The foaming hand soap is ready to be used.
I’ve used dish soap for my foaming soap bottle in the kitchen and lots of different hand soaps for the bathrooms. As you can see this can save you money and it’s easy to make. You can also try using unscented hand soap and add a few drops of your favorite essential oil.
Foaming body wash is just as easy to make as the foaming hand soap.
Foaming Body Wash – DIY
You’ll need a foaming soap pump & bottle.
Fill the bottle ¼ full with your favorite body wash.
Add water to almost fill the bottle – leaving room for the pump to be inserted.
Gently shake the bottle to combine the body wash & water.
The body wash is ready to be used.
I love these foaming soaps & body washes! The soft fluffiness feels so luxurious and making it yourself saves money.
