Home Made Foam Soap Refill

Over the years, we have spent a lot of money on fancy hand soap and especially foam soaps.  Cute bottles, neat scents, and kid-friendly designs and themes… and the reason?  It’s simple, the kids love them and they don’t leave a goopy mess in your sink!  We decided to try making them on our own.  Honestly, we didn’t think it would work, but to our surprise, it did.  The process was quick and painless, and you don’t have to be an extreme couponer to stretch your soap usage!

You do need to first purchase a foam soap dispenser, which you can get at any grocery or superstore.  First, take three tablespoons of your favorite dish or hand soap and gently stir into 2/3 cup of water.  The key is to stir gently.  You do not want to shake and stir too quickly, but just enough to blend the soap into the water.  Next, pour the mixture into your foam soap dispenser and give it a few pumps.  You should start to see the foam right away.

We used Ajax grapefruit scented dish soap and it has been working great!  We love it and with kids, it is so affordable and they can even help make it, so that’s a plus!
