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
- 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)
Twist the pump into place and gently shake the soap/water mixture
