DIY Foaming Hand Soap – a two-ingredient foaming hand soap recipe you can make yourself. This will save you a ton of money!
In our house we go through A LOT of hand soap. Sometimes the kids like to go a bit overboard. While I do purchase Bath and Body Works soap to have on hand when we have guests, during our normal day-to-day I recycle our empty foaming soap containers with my homemade solution.
Making Homemade Hand Soap
Ingredients & Materials
- Foaming soap dispenser pump bottle – I used an empty Bath and Body Works container
- Liquid dish soap or hand soap
Making DIY foaming hand soap is really very easy. All you need to get started is your favorite dish soap or a moisturizing hand soap and an empty foaming soap container. The dishwashing liquid I chose for this hand soap does have bleach alternative, which may or may not be that great for your hands long-term. If you’re concerned about that try Dawn Hand Renewal or Softsoap.
I bought the Gain soap while browsing the aisles at Target. I loved the color and the scent just reminded me of summer. And let me tell you what. . .I need
a little a lot of summer right now here in Wisconsin.
Fill the container about 1/4 of the way with soap.
And then fill the container the rest of the way with water. And guess what? You’re done.
This truly saves us so much money and when the kids use a bit more than they should, I don’t freak out about it. Pump away kiddos. Pump away.

Don’t you shake the bottle after putting soap and water in?
Hi Eva, nope, no shaking necessary. Just start pumping and the soap will begin to foam as it comes out of the dispenser.
