DIY Foaming Hand Soap

I think it’s hard sometimes to read DIY (do it yourself) and think… sure, I’ve got time for that! I am a doer, a maker, a DIY’er, but when kid #2 came along production stopped on all things that weren’t essential to survival.

However! Some DIY tasks come along, and it’s so darn easy and awesome. It ends up saving you time and money!

This foaming hand soap recipe is just that; easy and awesome.

It’s also customizable, and it has helped my family say good-bye to the needs for hand moisturizers – unless I get lazy and skip the jojoba oil! Happens…

It took me a LONG time to get to this simple recipe. Thankfully, placed in my path, a new friend who had figured out how foaming hand soap is done!

I have always been conscious of the environment. I’ve got a running list of goals and changes to improve my foot print on this world, but sometimes it just seems down-right complicated for some reason. I hope to break things down for people like me out there who need things to be simple and easy.

If you’re looking to simplify and “Green UP” your hand soap game, read on:

Healthy... The best way to stay healthy and germ-free is by washing your hands with soap and water for a minimum of 30 seconds. I try to get my boys to sing the alphabet while scrubbing, but that doesn’t always happen. It’s my understanding that antibacterial soaps should be avoided. The antibacterial properties are made from chemicals, and chemicals mean toxins. I’m no scientist, so here’s a better explanation for anyone who needs the details.

Saves Time… I provided affiliate links to the products that I use. Of course, do your own price comparisons if you like… Once you order these things, you won’t have soap or soap refills on your shopping list for over a year. One less aisle at the store! One less coupon to clip!

Happy hand washing! 🙂
