Since its debut at Bath and Body Works, I have had a thing for foaming hand soap. I have pumps by each sink in my house, and love to use them because they are gentle on the skin. Plus, the light and fluffy foam makes me happy when I wash my hands.
Though I love foaming hand soap, I hate the price and how quickly the pumps run out in comparison to regular hand soaps. Luckily, I found out how to make my own DIY foaming hand soap thanks to The Frugal Girls website.
This season, instead of going to Bath and Body Works to purchase their holiday scented hand soaps, I am making my own – and you can too! You can use any empty foaming hand soap bottle you have laying around the house, or you can purchase a new one here.
- Liquid Hand Soap* (Softsoap, Dial, etc.)
- Empty Foaming Hand Soap Bottle (I used one from Bath and Body Works and removed the labels. Dial ones work great too.)
- First, start with a clean and empty foaming hand soap bottle. Fill the empty foaming soap bottle with approx. 1 inch of your liquid hand soap.
- Then, slowly fill the rest of the bottle with tap water making sure to leave enough room for the foaming pump to go in, otherwise it will overflow.
- Once filled with soap and water, twist the pump lid back on, and gently tip the bottle upside down and side to side to mix. Do not shake - it will get too sudsy - just trust me on this one.
- If you really want to spruce up your soap, and make it look just as nice as the store bought varieties, simply dress up your bottle with custom labels. I used the Floral Candycane style for my soap this season. Since I plan on gifting a few away, I added a custom tag with the phrase “We Wash You a Merry Christmas - from our sink to yours!”
