Pinterest Hack – DIY Foam Hand Soap

DIY FOAM HAND SOAP

Pinterest Hacks Fail Or FortuneImage

It’s time for another Pinterest hack!

This is my monthly trial of a DIY, craft, or other ‘to-good-to-be-true’ home project that is popular on Pinterest.  It’s my way of sharing with my followers if a pin on Pinterest is a fail or fortune.

March is all about spring and spring cleaning.  So I am sharing this Pinterest hack to make your own foaming hand soap at home and save you money.  I won’t make you wait until the end of the trial to find out- this DIY is a WIN – or a fortune . . . or rather, it will save you a FORTUNE.  Yes, it works.  I have actually been doing this for almost two years and have not purchased expensive foaming hand soap since 2014.  Actually, I haven’t had to purchase my cheap hand soap to make the foaming soap for over a year now.

Here’s the HOW TO-

MAKE YOUR OWN FOAMING HAND SOAP & SAVE MONEY

This is the best Pinterest hack I have found that actually works!

A RECIPE FOR MAKING YOUR OWN FOAMING HAND SOAP 

If you have several bathrooms in your house and children, this is a tried and true money saver. Plus, it is incredibly simple to make.  Not to mention, I love the foaming soap- but not the price tag to buy new replacement pumps full of soap.  They run $5 to $7 each retail at most places!

 Instead I now have a few of those cool shaped Bath & Body Works pumps with fancy flower images on them and just refill every pump at each sink in our house every month or so.  In fact most of the time they last for up to two months or longer.

This saving tip really works because the foaming pump injects a blast of air into a small amount of soap as it pumps.

Here is how to make your own foaming soap in 2 EASY STEPS- 

STEP 1: 

First, buy or use soap you have around the house.  I use a generic brand that comes in an XL refill container and only runs me about $4 at my local grocery store.

 It is best to use a clear gel that is not too thick or gooey.  Liquid bath soap will work too.

Fill the pump container with about an inch of the gel liquid soap, then slowly add cold water up to about an inch from the top (to prevent overflow when the pump is inserted).

Tip: Add the water SLOWLY, so as not to agitate the soap too much –  because if it mixes while you are adding the water, it may overflow, with suds everywhere, when inserting the pump back on the top. 

STEP 2:

Mix but do NOT shake.  Simply turn (gently and slowly) the filled pump upside down and right side up a few times and side to side.

Tip: Turning slowly back and forth is best and once or twice upside down. If you shake the pump the contents will become too bubbly and the air pump will not work properly.

TADA!  Now you are ready to wash up and you are using less soap and wasting less plastic!
