Hi.

Welcome to my place.

I write about about being a 40-something mum of five wonderfully exasperating children, attachment parenting, my adventures in the kitchen, and whatever else comes to mind.

DIY: Foaming Hand Soap

DIY: Foaming Hand Soap

Do you love foaming hand soaps as much as I do? They're a fantastic way to cut back on waste, and make a little liquid soap go a long way. Buying pre-made foaming soaps adds up quickly, though -- here's how you can make your own, using refillable containers!

What you need:

I bought a 3 pack of these foaming hand pumps from Amazon. You can also reuse an empty foaming hand pump if you have one at home. 

Open the top of the foaming hand pump. Add 250ml of water to the bottle, then carefully pour 1 tbsp of castile soap into the container. Be careful not to agitate it. Screw the cover back on. Gently swish the container back and forth until the soap has mixed with the water. 

Add a fancy label, if desired. (I have 5 kids and am a realist, so I know a fancy label will be pointless and went straight to "practical".)

Easy peasy!
