Looking for ways to save $$ and stretch your body wash?  Well… I’ve got a little tipsy for you!



By now, you know how much I love foam! ;)  Seriously ~ I’m in love with my DIY Foaming Hand Soap, DIY Foaming Dish Soap, DIY Foaming Tear-Free Shampoo, DIY Foaming Baby Wash… and now DIY Foaming Body Wash!!  {who doesn’t love fluffy foam?!?}

It’s such a simple trick… and will help you save BIG

What You’ll Need:

  • Liquid Body Wash {Note: Don’t use the thick & creamy body washes.  The clear-based body washes foam best!}
  • 1 Empty Foaming Hand Soap Bottle {Bath & Body Works, Dial, etc.}

What You’ll Do:

  • Fill the Empty Foaming Soap Bottle with approx. 1 inch of your liquid body wash
  • Slowly fill the rest of the bottle with water.
  • Put lid back on, and gently tip upside down & side to side to mix.
  • Don’t shake all wildly now, mm-kay? {it will get too sudsy ~ just trust me} :)

Now isn’t that easy??

    You can also do 1 part soap and 2 parts cold water use pumper to stir and then you are done! since some containers are small or large

    I also do 1/3 soap and 2/3 water. But I put in the water first, better with HOT water, then add the soap after the bubbles go away. Usually fill my containers up when doing dishes and hot water is running freely. Also, I make up a BIG batch at a time. I have an old softsoap container from Sam’s Club, so I make a big batch and keep my own refills under each sink. I even have lines drawn on my big container where to fill water to and then fill rest with soap.

    You can also stretch the the foaming hand soap by 3rd( I love the Bath and Body brand). I run a home daycare and the kiddos LOVE to go through the soap. Plus, some of the scents are a bit strong so I experimented with diluting them. In my bath room I prefer to do half water to half foaming soap. In the kids bath I do 1/3 soap to 2/3 water. It gets us just as clean, the scent is not as over powering and if you bought them during the semi annual sale you are really saving $$$$. I love stretching the budget!

    My boyfriend uses crazy amounts of soap, so I mix a little bit of shower gel with mostly water, and it lets him use a lot of the foam, but not a lot of soap. This is a great idea!!!

    Make sure you routinely and thoroughly clean the pumper as it can easily get contaminated with repeated use.
