I wasn't aware that you bought it as a foam, but rather the pump in the bottle foams it as you dispense it. I have refilled foaming dispensers with regular liquid soap and a little water.

It's the pump that makes the soap foam up so just refill the original container with any type of liquid soap and add a little water if it's a really thick type.

Buy one foam soap dispenser. When it is empty, refill the bottle with one part shampoo or body wash and 8-10 parts water. This makes a nice foam soap. Foam your hands and rub thoroughly without water first. Then use water to rinse. That way the soap is not diluted any more. Some people prefer to use distilled water to mix with the soap, some also use dish detergent. I like to use shampoo or body wash so I can select a nice aroma. I've been doing this for several years and just used up my second bottle of inexpensive shampoo.

There is a special dispenser that you can buy. You fill it with any liquid hand soap and when the top is pushed, the soap comes out foamy.

Wal Mart carries the generic kind - my kids like it just as well as the brand name stuff...

Buy the initial soap dispenser and use it up, then refill it with half dish soap and half water. This is the cheapest and best way!
