Frugal Idea

by GettingFreedom on August 27, 2008

So, I’ve came to the realization that I have an addiction…..to foaming hand soap. Something about it that I just love!

But, I hate to pay the inflated price for it, it’s just ridiculous!

While I was wiping up the side of the container one day (my kids seem to get toothpaste everywhere!!!), I noticed that there were little marks on the side. Hrm, wonder what they are for.

Surely those are there to refill said overpriced bottle, right?

Well, yes!!

I ran out of my foamy soap yesterday and decided to give “making my own foamy soap” a try. I looked under the cabinet for regular refillable hand soap.

Apparently, at some point in my life this was an addiction too! I have 2 huge containers of the stuff. Ha.

So, here is what I did. I took the refillable hand soap and poured it into an empty foamy soap dispenser, about a quarter of the way up. Then, I put enough water in it to reach the bottom of the pump majiggy, or to the top line on the container. I had to shake it for just a bit to get the soap fully incorporated.

I have to admit, at first I was a litte skeptical. But, my concoction actually worked.

Awesome!!

Now my year supply of refillable hand soap has turned into a lifetime supply of foamy hand soap!!!

Woot. I love frugal-ness!!
