Simply Savvy_refill foam soap_mainMy family and I had always used typical liquid hand soap until one day, through the magic of couponing, I had the opportunity to obtain several bottles of foaming had soap for free.

Well, this foam soap was an instant hit, but after a few weeks we had used up all of the bottles I’d gotten for free, and I certainly didn’t want to BUY any more–without coupons it wasn’t exactly the cheapest stuff in the world.

But I was determined to continue to provide my family with the foaming soap they so desired.

I did a bit of research, tried several different methods, and finally settled on the easiest and most cost-effective way to refill a foaming hand soap bottle.

You’ll need 3 things to refill your foaming hand soap dispenser:

1. Liquid hand soap (I got this large Equate brand container of soap from Wal-Mart for $2.88)

2. An empty foaming hand soap dispenser (as mentioned above, I got this Dial dispenser free using coupons)

3. Warm water

Pour 1 tablespoon of liquid soap into the empty foaming soap dispenser.

Pour in warm water until about an inch and a half of space remains at the top, screw the pump back on, then shake well until the liquid soap is totally dispersed.

You may have to give it a few pumps before it comes out initially.

And you’re all done!

Like I said, I spent $2.88 on the large liquid hand soap container at Wal-Mart and I’ve been refilling my hand soap dispensers with it for over a year and it’s not even half empty.  Tons of money saved + having a way for my family to keep using their much-loved foaming hand soap = one happy girl!
