DIY Foaming Hand Soap

diy-hand-soapThis was another one of my sisters blogs of motivation that I just had to share! šŸ™‚ This DIY Foaming Hand Soap is sooooo simple and is going to save us soooo much money! Not to mention the fact that I have tried and tried to find soaps withoutĀ sodium laurel sulfate, horrible parabyns, propylene glycol (that is in anti-freeze you know), and all of the other toxic crud they are making them with these days. That is a very challengingĀ endeavor, and an expensive one at that! So oh how excited I was to know that I would be spending PENNIES on this soap after myĀ initialĀ investment. (Which was VERY small…about $6 for the 3 bottles of foaming hand soap that I washed down the sink so I couldĀ re-purposeĀ the bottles. šŸ˜‰ ) We already has some Dr Bronners Castile Soap on hand, so that one was a no cost for us.

This stuff is so simple that it doesn’t really require a recipe. My sister’s original recipe can be found HERE. She uses 1 teaspoon of castile soap per cup of water. I did some experimenting and I found that I like it a bit better with a tablespoon, so that is what I use. I won’t be saving quite as much money as she is, but I will still be saving a TON! šŸ˜€

All you need…

  • 1 Cup Water
  • 1 Tablespoon Dr Bronners Castile Soap (any scent that you like)

Put them both into your foam pump bottle, tighten the lid, and give it a quick shake.

There you have it, that’s it!

Easy Peasy! šŸ˜€

    Thank you for posting your recipe. I was wondering what the ration would be for this soap and I did not want to waste our castile soap by using too much. Many blessings to you.
