DIY: Foaming Soaps

“I bought a Dawn Direct Foam pump for my dish washing soap a long time ago. Now I just purchase regular dish soap with my coupons and sales (usually free), and then refill it! 

Just fill the direct foam bottle about 2/3 with water, then 1/3 of the way with soap Be sure to leave about a 1" space at the top of the bottle for room.. Put the water in first or it will be too foamy and you wont be able to fill the bottle up till the foam settles. I add a few drops of olive oil or any oil you like to use will work , this keeps the pump working good. Then, stir it very gently so you don’t make bubbles in the bottle. It seriously stretches the life of my dish soap!!”

Now… I put this to the test, and absolutely love it! I added about 6 tbsp Of your favorite dish soap to my bottle,  

Give it a try ~ save money

I. Love. Fluffy Soap! It’s true ~ I love the foaming suds… but not the price.

Homemade Cleaners are a simple way to save BIG, so one day I decided to make Homemade Foaming Soap! I’ve been doing this trick for years now… and you can too!
What You’ll Need:
Liquid Hand Soap {Softsoap, Dial, antibacterial or other} *If you use the thick creamy soaps, you will need to thin it down before adding it to the Bottle. The clear-based soaps foam best!*
1 Empty Foaming Hand Soap Bottle {Bath & Body Works, Dial, etc.}

Homemade Peppermint Foaming Hand Soap
1/4 parts peppermint scented castille soap (or plain)
3/4 parts distilled water
2-3 drops peppermint essential oil
a foaming soap dispenser

Mix water then soap.. Drop in and mix in oils. Pour into a foaming soap dispenser. That’s IT!
Now isn’t that easy??
Here's one more recipe that I sometimes use
 liquid Foaming hand soap
Here is the easy recipe

Fill a foaming soap pump (like this one) 1/3 full with Castile Soap (I like Dr. Bronner’s in Peppermint, Almond and Lavender for hand soaps)
Depending on the size of the bottle (and your smeller), drop 10-30 drops of Thieves, Purification or Tea Tree Essential Oils (they are all powerful antibacterials).
Fill the rest with filtered, distilled or regular tap water
