All you need is an empty foaming soap dispenser (I use Bath & Body Works), and a bottle of Liquid Dish Soap or Liquid Hand Soap – you can use any scent – I love lemon for the kitchen. Next, add 1 inch (or a little more if you like) of liquid dish soap to your container.

How to Make It

  1. Fill an empty soap dispenser about three-quarters of the way full with clean, warm water.

Why do my foam soap pumps stop working?

If you don’t use your foaming pump frequently enough, any soap trapped in the mechanism can dry and cause the pump to stick or fail. Just remove the pump top and place in a glass of water. Keep pressing until clear water is being dispersed. Then try again with your bottle.

If you love to use soap nut foam, then perhaps you might need to unclog your foam pump bottle more frequently.

How can I make my soap more foamy?
