Do It Yourself Foaming Hand Soap Refills
My grandkids (ok, me too) love the foaming hand soaps that I can get at Bath and Body Works in all those amazing fragrances. I only buy them when they are on sale and with a coupon or if I can find them at the thrift store. That can still get expensive though so I looked up a recipe online for making it myself.
What you will need is a foaming hand soap dispenser bottle (I just recycled one), some shower gel or body wash and water. You simply mix 1 part shower gel with 4 parts water and shake it all up. Clear shower gel works better (or so they say) than the not clear kind, but I have had great success with both.
The bottle of body was above was a great find for .99 at the thrift store, is 33 oz. and was brand new (I took the picture after making up the foaming hand soap). It is a pink grapefruit fragrance and I love it! I figure that I can refill that foaming soap bottle at least 5 times if not more for .99 total. Now that is a huge savings!

You are very welcome! I hope you like it. :)Delete
How interesting! I'm going to have to look for a container like that. And, btw, your thrift stores have amazing stuff! I've never seen soap in ours.ReplyDelete
Hope you're feeling better. SJ
Hi SJ, our Goodwill will get new items from Target and one of the other thrift stores is well known for people donating lots of new items they were given as gifts but don't want and/or for having items donated that someone bought and then decided against. Check you dollar stores to see if they have foaming hand soap, if not, Walmart has it fairly cheap and then you can just reuse the container over and over again. :)Delete
The foaming soap is fun and I have enjoyed using it. I have never tried making my own. Thank you for visiting me with encouraging words. My teddies have washed up really well at getting the smell out. Was so happy about this. Same with clothing. Some things I plan to dye to hide the stains. Trying to be resourceful. May you have a super week-end,ReplyDelete
I'm so glad that you teddies washed up so well and so did the clothing. I'm sure that was a huge relief for you. :) I hope you have a wonderful weekend as well. :)Delete
Glad you found a way to make your own foaming hand soap! I am afraid I just use regular soap!ReplyDelete
HI BLess, it is really easy to make and so fun for the little ones in our family to use. Very economical too!Delete
