Don't Ever Throw Away Another One of These Pumps

That's right...

Your own foaming hand soap is so easy and cheap to make that it's LUDICROUS to throw out the pump that's often expensive, but crucial in the production of the foamy stuff!

I read a long time ago on Heather's blog Want What You Have, that she makes her own foaming hand soap and I thought that was just so genius! So, after many, many months of using the soap I bought on clearance at Bath and Body Works, for the express purpose of trying out this frugal recipe! Now, I FINALLY got to try it and it works beautifully.

The soap I used was some generic cucumber melon scent from Walmart that cost like $.88. Half a container of this $.88 soap has already made 2 bottles of foaming hand soap, which as you know, lasts forever as well. So, that $.88 is going to go a long way!

So here's how you do it....

Fill an empty foaming hand soap container (has to be this kind of soap dispenser or it won't foam) a third of the way full of any kind of regular hand soap you like. Then fill the rest of the container with water. Gently tilt back and forth to mix, and it's ready!!!

There you and easy!


  1. Whooo!! How awesome is that?
    I have to go and get me a foaming container!

  2. Glad it worked for you Angie! We've been doing it for years now, and it takes me a year to get through one of those big refill bottles of Milk & Honey hand soap from Wal-Mart. Saves tons of money!

    Also, I tried to comment on Miss G.'s very cute tub picture a few days ago, but Blogger wouldn't let me. I have technical issues lately.

  3. Cool! Now I wish I hadn't thrown my bottles away! Thanks for sharing this with us!

    Have a Wonderful Weekend!

  4. I'm bookmarking this idea! I love it. Thanks for sharing.

  5. That is neat! I'm glad it worked!

  6. How cool is that!!! Cool I say!
