DIY foamy soap dispensers

In a much earlier post, I wrote about how to save some money on soap HERE. That post explained how to turn all of those leftover soap slivers into liquid soap. I have recently discovered a way to stretch this reclaimed investment even further. The current rage in the soap industry is foamy hand soap. Almost every public bathroom soap unit has been changed to dispense foam and you can purchase personal use foam dispensers for your home as well. I am usually a little late for the dance, so I discovered this just recently via one of my Ibotta rebates. Having purchased a bottle of the foamy soap, it quickly ran out in my household of ten. That got me researching how I could refill the dispenser with my own soap solution.

Here's how:

Items needed:
  • 1 foaming soap dispenser (you'll need to purchase one filled and wait until it's been emptied)

Start with any normal, thick, liquid hand soap of your choosing. Fill the empty, foamy soap dispenser about 25% of the way with this soap. Then, add warm water to fill the bottle the rest of the way (leaving a little head room for the plunger to fit back in the bottle without spilling any out). Tighten the plunger and shake the bottle well to mix the soap and water solution.

That's it! All ready to go and tackle those dirty hands.

  1. I love this method!!! I've also used dishwashing liquid mixed with water, and it seems to work well, without re-separating!
