With a 4 year old, we are constantly washing his hands, and the foaming soap just seems to clean him up better than the traditional. This tip has been floating around the frugal blogs, but I just tried it myself and thought I'd share with you the Secret of Foaming Hand Soap!
If you already have a foaming hand soap dispenser, DON'T THROW IT OUT. The secret is NOT the soap, but the special pump that's used to foam it up. When your purchased foaming soap is empty, simply refill it with (you're not going to believe this)....
1 Teaspoon of your Favorite Liquid Soap or Dish Washing Liquid
...and fill the rest with Water!
Shake it up to dilute the soap and you now have a completely refilled foaming soap.
Can you believe that? Can you believe that we've all been paying EXTRA for the special, luxurious, foaming soap when it's actually mostly water? Stop wondering how much money we've wasted on these soaps and take a look:
