I’ve made my own foaming hand soap for most of the past year and I’m finally getting around to sharing this with y’all… sorry it has taken me so long!
I learned somewhere on the web last year that “foaming hand soap” is actually just watered-down liquid soap that foams due to a special dispenser. Mind. Blown.
I tested this out and lo-and-behold, it appears to be true. Our homemade soap still gets our hands clean, and I haven’t bought soap in a very long time!
How To Make Your Own Foaming Soap
I just fill our foaming hand soap dispensers about 1/8 of the way full of my favorite Mrs. Meyer’s hand soap, then fill them up the rest of the way with water. I then stir and/or shake the mixture to get the soap distributed, and put the top back on. Voila!
Of course this would work with any regular liquid hand soap, but I personally think it is worth spending a little more on quality soap. You can get this 33 oz. refill jug of Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Hand Soap in Basil on Amazon for as low as $5.64 with a 15% Subscribe & Save discount. Or you can add it to an Amazon Prime Pantry order for $6.64.
As for the foaming dispensers, you will likely spend a few bucks on them initially, but you will earn that back quickly with your DIY homemade soap. Mine are from Method and Ulta, but any will work. Happy hand washing!
