Make Your Own Foaming Hand Soap: Simple and Affordable

Making your own foaming hand soap is not only cost-effective but also allows you to customize the soap to your liking. Here’s a simple recipe to make foaming hand soap at home:

What You Need:

  • Regular liquid hand soap (avoid creamy ones)
  • Water
  • A foaming hand soap dispenser (you can reuse an old one)


  1. Take a foaming hand soap dispenser. If you don’t have one, you can reuse an old foaming hand soap dispenser by cleaning it thoroughly.
  2. Fill the foaming soap dispenser about one-fourth (1/4) full with your regular liquid hand soap. You don’t need much; a little goes a long way.
  3. Now, fill the remaining three-fourths (3/4) of the dispenser with water. Leave some space at the top to avoid overflowing when you insert the pump.
  4. Carefully put the top back on the dispenser, ensuring it’s sealed properly.
  5. Give the dispenser a gentle shake to mix the soap and water. You don’t need to shake vigorously; just a few gentle shakes should do.
  6. Allow the foam and bubbles to settle for a moment.
  7. Your homemade foaming hand soap is ready to use. Simply press the pump, and you’ll have luxurious foaming soap that works just as well as the store-bought version.

This DIY foaming hand soap is not only cost-effective but also a fun and practical way to ensure you get the most out of your liquid hand soap. It’s great for kids as it encourages them to use just the right amount of soap and is fun to use. Plus, you can choose your favorite hand soap, so you’re not limited to specific scents or brands. Enjoy your homemade foaming hand soap!
