I am in love with Bath and Body Works hand soaps. There used to be a time when I would buy a ton of them, usually around Christmas when they are on sale and stock up for the whole year. Granted their soap is not overly expensive, but now that I am trying really hard to stick to a budget and cut any unnecessary expenses, spending $40.00-$50.00 for 10 -20 cute little bottles of soap for the year seems to fall into that category of unnecessary.
Trying to save money, I found a recipe online to make your own DIY foaming hand soap and have been using it for the past year and I have to say, there is really no difference between making your own and buying the ones that Bath and Body Works sells. You may not have as much of a selection in scents, but when you see how much foaming hand soap you can make, it’s definitely worth it!
- Soap container with Foaming Hand Pump (I used a leftover one from Bath and Body Works but if you do not have one, you can buy one off of Amazon here)
- Dish Soap of your choice (I use Dawn Green Apple soap)
- Fill empty soap container 1/4 of the way with dish soap
2. Fill the remainder of the container with water (leave a little space at the top so the soap does not overflow when you put the pump back on)
3. Twist the pump into place and gently shake the soap/water mixture
4. You can now use your new foaming hand soap!
