Ever since I started making my own laundry detergent, I’ve been experimenting with other DIY cleaning and soap recipes. The foaming hand soap recipe I’m sharing with you today is so simple, and it saves tons of money. I encourage you to give it a try. I know I won’t go back to buying foaming hand soap again.
- an empty foaming hand soap container
- regular (not foaming) hand soap of your choice
When you’ve used up the soap in a foaming hand soap container, fill the bottle about 1/8 full with your favorite “regular” hand soap. Then fill the bottle the rest of the way with water (leaving enough room for the pump to go on).
Finally, just shake the bottle to mix the soap and water together. You have your foaming hand soap!
You can add the water first, then the soap, if you find the soap is sudsing when you add the water. Or, you can just add the water more slowly.
You can experiment with adding a little more or less soap to the mixture depending on the consistency of your foaming soap. It will depend on your preference and the hand soap you’re starting with.
You can also use this recipe to make foaming body wash or dish soap. It’s a great way to make your expensive liquid soaps last a long time too. Moms especially love this because it keeps little ones from using so much soap.
