Do It Yourself Foaming Hand Soap!

If you haven’t made your own foaming hand soap yet, you’re about to wonder why you waited so long to try it! This is SO easy! I know many of you loved the DIY Body Wash post we did a while back and that takes a lot more effort than this does!

Making your own foaming hand soap can save you quite a bit of money. I decided to do it because I was at the very end of my normal “pump” hand soap and the frugalista in me couldn’t just toss what was stuck at the bottom of the bottle! If I had turned my hand soap into a foaming soap from the start, I could have extended the life of my bottle by at least a year! D’oh!

It is crazy to see how much money you’re going to save by doing this!

Here’s what you’re going to need:

  • Liquid soap
  • Unused Foaming Pump
  • Warm Water

Yup, that’s all you need. Crazy huh? Believe it or not, it is the hand pump that creates all that foamy magic! You can turn almost any liquid soap into a foam if you have a foam pump!

Now, you can approach this in two ways: 1) you can start with a brand new bottle of liquid soap or 2) you can use the soap that you just can’t seem to get to at the bottom of an almost empty bottle. I’m starting with the second approach because I wasn’t thinking ahead.


As you can see, you don’t need very much to work with…


Unscrew the top and add hot water to your soap (if you’re starting with a full bottle of liquid soap, add a few pumps of the into an empty foaming pump container and add the water there).


Slowly move the bottle upside down then right-side up a few times. You don’t want to shake it or you’ll create lots of extra bubbles. Do this a few times so that the liquid soap has time to dissolve into the warm water.

Now, if you decided to start doing this with the last bit of an old liquid soap, go ahead and pour your new mixture into your foaming pump container. If you combined in your foaming pump container, simply screw the top back on.


That’s it! You’ve just made a brand new $5 bottle of hand soap for PENNIES!!!


Whoohoo!! I love how easy it is to save money sometimes!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this DIY. Please remember to like, share, tweet, and pin this post! 🙂


  1. Thanks for the diy for the soap. I wanted to know are you wearing nail decals or did you do that design yourself. If you did it yourself can you please do a tutorial? Thanks for your time.
