How to Make DIY Foaming Hand Soap

All you need is a foaming hand soap bottle and some dish soap. You can actually buy empty foaming hand soap bottles to do this, but I just get a pretty bottle of foaming hand soap, use it up, and then use the empty bottle for the next refill.

To refill the foaming hand soap, add a few tablespoons of concentrated dish soap to your foaming bottle, fill the rest with water, shake it up, and you’re good to go! Hand soap refills or the whole bottles can be not super eco-friendly, but with this method, you just need one foaming bottle per sink and you can keep refilling it as many times as you’d like. Not only does it save money, it also prevents extra plastic from ending up in the landfill. Win win!

Supplies Needed:

I got these pretty soap bottles from Method so I don’t have to reuse an ugly bottle. 😉 But of course they were full of soap originally so I just used them until they were empty and then filled them with a few squirts of dish soap and the rest with water.

Keep in mind that if you keep using the same soap bottle, you might need to clean it up a bit every once in a while so it doesn’t end up yucky, especially at the bottom and the spout itself. If you get soap stuck in the plastic spout, you can take a qtip and clear it out so the foaming mechanism will continue working. 🙂

Can you just use dish soap and water in a regular soap dispenser? Well, yes, but it will be watery. The difference with these foaming dispensers is that the special plastic top turns your soap mixture into a foam (which is also easier to wash your hands with because it’s already lathered up, if I might add).

If you’re looking for a way to save money and get better use out of your soap instead of having most of it end up washing down the drain, try out this DIY hand soap hack.

Good luck! 🙂

I would like a lavender scent. Could I use a few drops of lavender essential oil along with the dish soap?
