How do I make foaming handwash?
By Pam from GA
You need to have the pump container that makes the soap foam. Put about one inch of shampoo or body wash into the empty bottle, then add warm water. Don't fill to the brim, leave some room at the top. Put on the top and shake very gently, turning back and forth slowly a few times. Works like a charm for pennies.
You can buy a liquid soap foam dispenser for about $1.00-$1.60 from many of the liquid soap brands. Just buy one & refill the container with about 1/3 liquid soap (shampoo, body wash, whatever) & the rest water. I've been using the same one for about a year.
If you don't have the foaming container, buy one that already has foam soap in it. When that is finished, make your own with any liquid soap, shampoo or body wash.
The ratio of soap to water depends on your preference, and the strenth of the soap. However, 40/60 or even 30/70 is adequate.
It doesn't have to be antibacterial. Recent studies have shown that you just need to get stuff off your hands, and not necessarily by antibacterial agents. Let your man know that foam is just as effective to wash with.
Since it washes off faster, you'll save on your water and heating expense with foam. RVers and campers will appreciate this feature. A plus in drought-affected areas also,
If you want antibacterial agent, use antibacterial lotion or liquid.
