As many of you know, foamy soap makes washing children's hands so much easier because they aren't globing 2 gallons of soap on their hands with each washing, they like it, and it's easier to rinse. BUT... it is so expensive, and the kids go through it way too fast. So I came up with a solution that has saved me a ton of money. My husband liked it so much, he told me to write about it on the blog.
So here goes....
What I discovered is that the key to foamy soap is the bottle. All you need is to take an empty dispenser (7.5 fl oz), and fill it up to about an inch with regular hand soap, then fill it the rest of the way with water, shake it up, and voila you have foamy soap.
No. It doesn't work as well as regular foamy soap. You have to shake it up fairly regularly to keep the soap and water all mixed up, and if you want to make it really foamy. But in the great history of things I have done in my lifetime to save money, a few moments shaking a bottle before washing my hands is nothing. What really bugs me is that this discovery has essentially confirmed my suspicions that I have actually been paying a lot more money for what is, essentially, less soap.
Oh well... that's consumerism for you I guess.
