Foaming hand soap is a simple way to make any bathroom feel a bit more fun and modern. Whether you enjoy the feel of the foam in your hands or just have a bad habit of not lathering up the soap otherwise, there are plenty of reasons to enjoy this new take on personal hygiene. That said, there is one thing about foaming hand soap that is decidedly not fun: the price. Unlike liquid soap, which can be replaced without buying a new container, or bar soap, which is its own replacement, you can’t purchase more foaming hand soap without buying a new dispenser.

To get around this problem, many people have started making their own foaming hand soap at home. While hand soap isn’t as effective as liquid or bar soap, and refilling any kind of soap dispenser comes with some sanitation concerns, creating your own foaming hand soap can save money and be a fun DIY project. Best of all, making it is a simple process that can be completed in well under 10 minutes.
