DIY Foaming Hand Soap Refills

We are spending part of the week at my Grandpa’s as part of our Spring Break and loving every minute of it.  With SuperBaby’s new affection for all things water and hand washing related …we’ve been going through lots of soap during this visit.  The foaming hand soap dispenser on the bathroom sink was almost empty today so I looked around for something to replace it with. I found a mason jar on the kitchen counter labeled “soap”.  Hmmmm.

When I inquired about a refill, Grandpa informed me that he thought that was what was in the jar and that my Grandma had tried to refill the pump at one point but it didn’t work…so she dumped the soap into the mason jar.

Or something like that.

The point is…he didn’t really know what to do with it and so it continues to sit on his kitchen counter, a glaring reminder of what he has to learn to do for himself and one of the many “systems” my Grandma had that he is trying to decode.

So I taught him my secret for DIY foaming hand soap refills.

As long as you have an existing foaming hand soap pump this will take you about 2 minutes:

  • Pour 1 TBSP regular hand soap into the empty pump bottle ( a larger bottle like the Method one that I used today will need a little more soap, closer to 1 ½ TBSP
  • Fill with warm water leaving roughly 1 – 2 inches of space at the top.
  • Swish around.
  • Pump the bottle a few times to get the soap moving and voila! You know have a refilled foaming hand soap dispenser for pennies on the dollar.
