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 th 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.
