It’s super easy and inexpensive to make your own foaming hand soap.  Here is what you need:

1 empty foaming soap bottle to recycle  (I like a sturdy one that I recycled         from Watkins)

1 bottle of regular liquid hand soap

1.  Measure plain tap water to the 200 ml. mark on a Pyrex measuring cup.  Always do this first.

2.  To the Pyrex measuring cup, add 50 ml. of the liquid hand soap, bringing the measure to one full cup, or 8 ounces.  This amounts to 4/5 cup water and 1/5 cup soap.  Mix gently with a spoon.

3.  Pour this into the clean, empty foaming soap bottle until about 2/3 full.  My Watkins bottle holds 9 ounces and works well even when I pour in the entire 8 ounces of mix.

4.  Store any extra in a glass bottle with a tight top.

Note that when using foaming soap, you need a couple of squirts to get enough soap.
