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!

Mrs. Meyers Liquid Hand Soap Refill, Basil Scent, 33 Oz.

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!
