DIY - Make Your Own Foaming Dish Soap

I LOVE Dawn dish soap. I've made it no secret that there are certain things that I'm brand loyal ... such as Dawn, Tide, etc.  I can't help it ...

So ... when I was able to pick up one of these Dawn Direct Foam bottles a year ago with a great sale and coupon, I was so excited. It's perfect for a quick clean up on something that's not so messy and it keeps the sink fairly empty on a low volume cooking day ...


I even bought the refill bottle which is basically almost 2 refills worth ... but that was pretty expensive.

And then, that ran out. Oh sad day!

But guess what?? You can do this yourself and I can't believe I didn't look into that before!!

Ready to hear how easy it is??

Mix half water and half soap, place in bottle, put the pump top on and shake it up and ta da!


Ok, so here's a few tips for you:

1. If the pump seems to be clogged, you most likely used too much soap, just dump a little out (into a jar, you can save it for the next time!!) and add a little more water. You will know as it will be more soapy then foamy.

If the suds seem to thin and water, you added to much water, so again, dump a little out and add a little more soap.


I have not tried this with hand soap, but can't see why it wouldn't work too? I personally do NOT like body wash, prefer a bar and washcloth, but wish I had a pump bottle to try the body wash for the sink ...


Also, I've not tried any other dish soap except dawn to do this with. I would imagine, again, that it would be just fine.

Got a Frugal Hack to share? Let me know and I'll give it a shot!

  1. Yup it works for hand soap. I have been refilling the bathroom soap pump for years with BBW Sun Ripened Raspberry shower gel and water. (My fav smell and it is discontinued so the hand soap makes it last longer)

  5. I've been doing this with hand soap for years. I buy the "el cheapo" store brand BIG refill jug of soap, and just mix a little of it into some water in the foaming containers. Voila!
