DIY Foaming Handwash or Bodywash

Awhile ago I saw a post on Pinterest on how to make your own Foaming Handwash/Bodywash.  It’s super easy and it gets you the most for your buck.  For me I love to use the Burts Bees – Baby Bee Shampoo & Wash for my LO at bath time.  It’s usually about $10.  I like the better stuff for Lainey because she has eczema.  The only thing is you can go through that stuff so fast because the bottle isn’t that big.  So when I found this on Pinterest I was excited to use her Burt’s Bees wash this way.

I got the idea from this blog here.  You have to make sure you use a foaming soap dispenser or it won’t work.  Here is one I found from Bath and Body Works

 Here is what you need:
– Foaming soap dispenser
– Your favorite hand soap or body wash
–  Warm to Hot Water

Now in the other post I believe they use 1TBSP of soap and the rest water.  I started using a bit more because I like it more soapy as I thought the ratio had too much water than soap.  Then fill the container with Warm to Hot Water.  Don’t fill it up too fast or too full as you’ll get it everywhere!  You’ll want enough room at the top so it doesn’t overflow.  Then just pump away.  Now if your using a baby wash to refill, and the container had other hand soap or something else you wouldn’t want to wash your baby with, make sure you clean out the pump.  Then pump a bunch of times so you get the old stuff out.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.  Now my $10 for her wash goes so far! and I don’t mind getting the more expensive stuff.
