I’m a fan of Bath & Body Works foam soap (actually I’m a fan of all of their products), but recently my Peach Bellini soap ran out and I knew it would be awhile before I replenished my stock. But I’d read on Pinterest (no surprise there) that with just two ingredients, one of which being water I could make my own foam soap.
I did my research and through trial and error came up with one I liked. It was simple and required very little effort on my part. I’ve read where people used body wash and shampoo, but I chose something different.
Literally it’s Dawn dish soap. I used Hand Rewewal with Olay, mostly because the regular Dawn is a little too drying. Dawn is known for cutting the grease and although I want my hands clean, I don’t want to strip the natural oils from my skin. The other reason I wanted to use dish soap is because it’s thin.
I wash my hands a lot and so I wanted something that would be moisturizing as well. I used the soap dispenser I already had. I filled it a little less than half way with warm tap water and about 2 tablespoons of soap.
The reason it creates foam is not the soap, but the pump. The pump injects air and a small amount of soap simultaneously creating a foam. You don’t even have to shake or mix the water and soap, but I gave my a gentle swish.
