Making your own foaming hand soap is so easy and cheap! Foaming hand soap is kind of expensive for what it is. Somewhere on the web a while back(probably Pinterest), I found a post where somebody used castile soap to make their own foaming hand soap. I can’t remember which blog I originally found the recipe on, but I’ve used the recipe from Little House Living.
It is so super easy that you won’t even believe it! 1 cup of water plus 1 tablespoon of castile soap equals your own foaming hand soap. I buy the cheap container of soap from Walmart and dump out the chemical soap, saving the container to use for my homemade version. I like using castile because it is made with organic oils and doesn’t have all the funky detergents and unpronounceable chemicals you’ll find in standard liquid soaps.
And, the icing on the cake is that you can make a cup of foaming hand soap for about 18-23 cents!! I found a 32 ounce container for only 11.99 so that equals 18 cents per cup of foaming soap.You can order castile online or find it in health stores. Our local Target even has it! Be sure to check the clearance section as I have found it there marked down.
