DIY: How to Make Foaming Hand Soap

I have a board on Pinterest labeled “Household Tip” of, you guessed it, all the household tips I’ve seen on the web I would like to try.  Frankly, it’s not a full board, because I don’t have a whole lot of time to try all the do-it-yourself (DIY) out there.

Well, one such DIY that requires very little time and actually works is home-made foaming hand soap.  You probably have all the materials on hand, it saves you money and it’s better for the environment.  It’s a win-win for all!

Materials needed: water (I use distilled, but tap water is fine), liquid soap (hand or dish washing), foaming soap dispenser.

Here is the very cute Peanut demonstrating the method.

Pour anywhere from 3 tablespoon (or more if you want it more soapy) into the foaming soap dispenser.


Fill with water (the bottle in the demo needed 1 cup), close and give it a gentle shake.


Ta-da! I wasn’t kidding about it being easy. My three-year-old can do it.


Foamy enough for ya? If you have a bigger bottle, use more water and liquid soap.


And just because she’s so cute…
