DIY Foam Soap

We go through a lot of soap in our house, especially with a three year old constantly washing his hands.  So, I decided I would try and make my own foam soap and save a little money.  By the way, I have found that foam soap works best for little kiddos washing their hands.  Foam soap is pre-lathered, covering the hands more quickly and it is easier to wash off than other soaps.  Most people (not three-year-olds) use less water when using foam soap, another added bonus.

Directions for Making your own Foam Soap:

What you will need:
Empty Soap Dispenser
Shower Gel
Hot water

1.  Clean empty soap dispenser
2.  Add about 3/4" - 1" of shower gel
3.  Add hot water
4.  Very slowly tip soap dispenser upside down and repeat until shower gel is mixed with the water completely.  Do not shake.
5.  Pump until foam is dispensed
6   Wash hands and enjoy saving a little money

Nice and foamy

I had to bribe this little boy with one of these cookies, in order for me to take pictures of him.  At least his hands were clean :)

Scrub, scrub, scrub

All Clean


The soap I made, seems to have the same amount of foaminess as store bought foam soap and works great.  I plan on continuing to make my own foam soap, at least for the soap that Parker uses all the time.

Happy Champagne Thursday!
