Anyone else going through hand soap like there is no tomorrow? Between doing more as things recipe from COVID, and getting dirty playing outside it seems like we are running out of hand soap every time I turn around. I’m glad it only costs me pennies to make more rather than $3 a bottle. We’ve saved thousands over the years by making our own soap. It works great, and feels like the expensive brands you buy at the mall.
DIY Foaming Hand Soap:
In a foaming soap pump, add the following:
1 tbsp of your favorite dish soap
8-15 drops of your favorite essential oils
1 tbsp aloe gel (optional but makes it feel silky smooth)
Fill with water, and shake!
And you’re done! And it cost you about .03 to make rather than $3.
On another money saving note, you can buy empty foaming soap pumps on Amazon, but in my experience, those don’t last and stop working after a couple of months. The best I’ve found are the Dial foaming soaps at the grocery store. I buy the pumps, use the soap in them, and fill them up again. I’ve had some of them for years. They really work great.
