Hi friends! Here’s my kinda recipes– foaming soap! Hard on dishes, soft on your hands!
What better way to fill your Post Road Pump then with an organic homemade foaming soap?
Foaming Hand Soap
You will need:
7 oz foaming soap dispenser
(I sell the lid and pump only to attach to your
mason jar- see here)
2 TBSP Dr. Bronner’s Liquid Soap
1 Capful Thieves Household Cleaner
Water to Fill
Mix all in Foaming Dispenser.
(Double if you’re using my Quart Size foamer- a single batch is
perfect for a pint sized jar)
Yeehaw! Finally a recipe I can follow and not botch! Yes.. being in the kitchen is not my forte! But at least my hands will be clean.. in style
The following dish soap recipe was actually not intended for a foamer but I found it to work great! Dr. Bronner’s Soap doesn’t make soap suds so a foamer is the perfect fix for this. I didn’t dilute the recipe quite as much as you would to turn regular liquid soap into foaming soap but I found this works great for cutting the grease! This soap is awesome because it won’t dry out your hands like so many others will.
Get your dirty dishes out.. get your sleeves rolled up.. here goes…
Foaming Dish Soap
You will need:
1 capful Thieves Cleaner
4 Drops Basic H
Water to fill
Dr. Bronner’s comes in a wide variety of scents so you can make your soap smell as you please! I buy the unscented and add my own essential oils. Lemon for the dish soap, eucalyptus in the downstairs bath, lavender in the upstairs.. it is fun to experiment with different scents and combinations! Also Dr. Bronner’s is known to clog up foamers but I am happy to say that I’ve been using the pump available in tmy shop for a really long time and am still happy with the results!
I actually omit the Basic H in this recipe. From what I can tell it acts as an anti-bacterial agent and I’m not a germ freak. It washes my dishes just fine.. even if we are building a few extra immunities here on Post Road
