A lot of DIY recipes for this call for liquid castille soap, and while I’m sure I could find that here in Costa Rica somewhere, I couldn’t fathom where to even begin looking for it. So in the mean time – I did this recipe below. It works great, is so easy, and is SOOOOOO incredibly cheaper than say… Bath & Body Works.
First of all – kind reminder to not refill your foaming pump bottle with regular liquid soap only – it will get clogged almost immediately. The foaming pump actually injects air into a small amount of the soap mixture, making an incredibly foamy pump of soap to wash your hands with. So, the solution is to water down the soap.
You will need a previously purchased foaming soap pump bottle (mine was an old one I had from Bath & Body Works).
The recipe is simple:
- 3 tablespoons of either shampoo, body wash or liquid dish soap (you want a transparent/clear colored soap, not a creamy one)
- 2/3 cups water
Heat the water for 30 seconds or so in the microwave so it is warm (not too hot).
