As the mother of three young children, I am always encouraging hand washing — like voting — early and often. It seems like every time I turn around there is another reason to have those little hands washed up: multiple bathroom trips, little boys and bugs, nose picking, and just general yucky kid behavior. I got into couponing and thought I had figured out how to save money on the numerous bottles of handsoap I was purchasing. However, I found that as it turns out, I’m sort of picky when it comes to hand soap. I want the foaming kind and I prefer muted minty scents as opposed to flowery explosions. Needless to say, making my own, just the way I like it, has been better on my wallet and a chore my kids can help do.
All you do is buy a bottle of Castile Soap. I bought mine from Amazon last year and I still have about of a third of it left. It was approximately $15 by the time I had it shipped. Again, I still have plenty left from my 32 oz bottle. Ok, next step, take your current bottle and fill it with water. Then squirt a dollup of Castile soap in the bottle and shake gently. A dollup is just how ever much you squirt out. Really, if you find you want it soapy-er just squirt a little more in there. And that’s it.
