Foaming Hand Soap - Make Your Own

I don’t have a ton of these little domestic tricks like the other Wizards do, but I do use this one in my own home!  My wife absolutely loves the foaming hand soap that you get at Bath and Body Works. I hate to think what I have spent on those things over the course of our married life! That said, I am going to show you how you can make your own foaming hand soap and actually end up with a better product!  Then, I am going to show you how you can get a great jump start on making it for your own home at CVS this week!

Use Old Bottles You Have On Hand

If you are like us, you have several of these foaming soap pumps in your home already.  Go ahead and use them until they are empty, because you are going to need those pumps to get started.  Once empty, rinse the pump with warm water, leaving it about half full so that you can pump water through the pump and clean out any remaining soap.

Next, you want to fill the dispenser 1/3 full with your favorite dish detergent.  My favorite is the Dawn Plus because it has the Olay Hand Moisturizer mixed with the soap.  Fill the container the rest of the way with water until it is full.  Using a kabob skewer or something else thin enough to get in the bottle, mix the soap and water together until the soap is fully dissolved.  Put the pump back in the container and give it a couple of squirts and you are good to go.  Voila!  Instant foaming hand soap complete with Olay Moisturizer.  Plus, that stuff smells phenomenal!  See, the real trick is in the dispenser, not the soap!  That’s why they want you to buy it.  They can water down the soap while increasing their profit margin.

Where to Get Ingredients for Your Foaming Hand Soap

Now for the good part!  This week, CVS has Dawn Hand Renewal dish detergent on sale for $0.99.  There was a $0.75/1 coupon in the 8/28 P&G Insert for the Dawn Plus.  Here is the scenario:

Buy (1) Dawn Plus at .99

Use (1) .75/1 Dawn Plus from PG 8/28

Pay .25 per bottle!

You can get about 4-5 full bottles of foaming soap with one bottle of Dawn Plus.  That equals $0.05 – $0.06 per bottle!!!
Good Luck and let us know which scent you choose, my favorite is the Pomegranite!
