How to Make Foaming Hand Soap
This is one of those super simple, why haven’t I been making this forever sort of DIY recipes. With just two ingredients it’s easy to mix up and extremely economical. You can find this recipe and many more in my books. If you’re looking for hand sanitizer recipes you can go here for those.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- foaming soap dispenser(s) – reuse one you have or you can find the ones I used here
- 1-2 tablespoons castile soap (choose a scent that you love – citrus is my favorite!) – I use 2 tablespoons for 8 ounces of water (experiment with how foamy you want your soap to be
- 8 ounces of water (or whatever size your foamer is) – we go through soap really quickly so I use filtered tap water but if you don’t go through the soap quickly you’ll want to use distilled water
- measuring spoons
Here’s how to make it:
- Place the funnel in the container.
- Measure 1-2 tablespoons castile soap into the funnel.
- Pour water over the soap.
- Place the lid on the dispenser and shake to combine.
Wash up! My kids love this soap and I love how foamy it is – it does a great job cleaning hands. Feel free to add 10-20 drops of essential oil to the liquid if you’d like a make a custom scent or amp up your germ-killing capabilities.
