How to make your own Foaming Hand Soap

Printer-friendly version

I don't know about you, but I love foaming hand soap.  However, I hate the price!  It is such a convient product. Especially when you have an active two year old boy in your house. So I had to  figure out how to make your own. I have been doing this for over a year now and I still have some left under the cabinet!


Start with an empty foaming hand wash pump and Goo Gone to get the label off.


{Mix one part of liquid hand soap with 5-6 parts water}

I use 5 parts since having kids and washing my hands a lot during the day, it seems to keep them more moisturized. I mix a big batch and keep it in gallon jug under my kitchen sink.

Disclaimer: After a while your pump will stop working and you will have to buy a new one.

Also use soap without any of the gritty beads in it.
