How to make foaming hand soap

I like to keep hand soap next to my kitchen sink. But I don't. I just use the dish soap that's sitting there.

And yet, I like the foaming hand soap......how nice would that be sitting next to my sink. And even nicer if I could make my own!

Over time I looked around for the special containers needed and found them to be expensive which would defeat my purpose.

So I gave up on that idea.

Then one day I found myself at Walgreens thinking about how much I like foaming hand soap. And what the heck......why not just see if there was any foaming hand soap lurking on their shelves.

Well, this was my lucky day! For not only did I find foaming hand soap.......I found it on sale! On sale for ...........a little bit of nothing!!

Naturally I picked up this "little bit of nothing" and brought it home to live with me.
Then I started wondering just how long was it going to take to use up this "little bit of nothing". I mean......h..u..r..r..y......u..p! I want to make foaming hand soap!!

Finally it happened! The bottle was empty!

So I unscrewed the top, filled it with water to about the same point the soap was when I purchased the bottle (7.5 ozs).

I poured the water in a small bowl and added 3 tablespoons of liquid hand soap ( liquid dish soap works well also). I stirred this with a spoon then I poured this mixture back into the bottle and replaced the lid.

I let it sit for about ten minutes before I used it.

It works great!

And it's "cheap"!!

I love the feel of "cheap"!

What a great web log. I spend hours on the net reading blogs, about tons of various subjects. I have to first of all give praise to whoever created your theme and second of all to you for writing what i can only describe as an fabulous article. I honestly believe there is a skill to writing articles that only very few posses and honestly you got it. The combining of demonstrative and upper-class content is by all odds super rare with the astronomic amount of blogs on the cyberspace.
