Foaming Hand Soap
1 part soap
3 parts water
An empty foaming hand soap dispenser
Fill the container about one-quarter full with soap. Then add water. Put the lid on and shake. Add more soap if it's hard to spread around your hands. Add less soap if it's too slippery and hard to rinse off.
I buy the least expensive soap, body wash, shampoo, or dish soap with the least amount of chemicals. I used to only trust anti-bacterial soap with my hands, but after reading tons of articles like this one and this one, I learned anti-bacterial products with triclosan are no more effective at preventing sickness than regular soap and they could lead to bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics and anti-bacterial soaps.
$0.41 - 2 oz. Trader Joe's Hand Soap ($3.49/17 oz.) + 4 oz. water
If you don't care about using a natural soap, Walmart sells a big bottle of Equate soap for a good price.
$0.14 - 2 oz. Equate soap ($3.88/56 oz.) + 4 oz. water
Sure beats paying $2 or more for a container of foaming hand soap from the store. And think of all the empty foaming hand soap dispensers you'll be saving from the landfill!
Do you know of any natural soaps, body wash, shampoo, or dish soaps that are a good price?
