TUTORIAL: Make your own foaming soap refill

This has been a game changer for me.  With a potty-training child, we wash our hands a LOT every day.  A lot.   Really a lot.  I originally saw this on Pinterest, so I am not the brilliant soul who thought of trying this.  However, I now share it with you, in case you also do not enjoy buying gallon after gallon of soap refill and having to refill the dispenser almost daily.  Enjoy.

1. Regular refill bottle of hand soap (I use a clear non-antibacterial type I buy at my grocery store, but you can use any similar type)
2. An empty foaming soap dispenser (you must use the foaming dispenser type)
3. Hot tap water

Add about one inch of hand soap to the bottom of the foaming soap dispenser.

Slowly add hot water from the tap (as you can see from the photo below, I added it too fast and had to wait for the foam to go down).  

Be sure to leave room at the top for when you add the dispenser lid back on.

Screw the dispenser lid back on and shake it up until the soap dissolves into the hot water.

Enjoy your long-lasting foaming soap refill!
