Easy Liquid Hand Soap Recipes

Make homemade hand soap with gentle, non-toxic ingredients, and treat your skin right.

Your wallet will thank you, too. DIY hand soap is much cheaper than chemical-filled, commercial stuff you find on the shelves at most stores. If you can’t pronounce an ingredient, you might not want to be putting it on your skin.

I don’t know what it is about liquid soap, but children sure do love it! If your kids tend to shortcut their cleaning routine, swap out ordinary bar soap for liquid instead.

I bet they will take to washing better, and you’ll rest easy knowing you provided a frugal, all-natural soap for them to use. Sounds like a win-win!

How to Make Homemade Liquid Hand Soap From-Scratch

Any DIY liquid soap recipe is as easy as reusing an old hand soap bottle and filling it with a few ingredients.

First, you’ll need a soap base.

Then, you might want to add soothing oils or scent with essential oils. Follow the specific recipe and explore your options.

Next, mix everything together and bottle it up. 

Finally, display on your bathroom or kitchen skin and give yourself a pat on the back for adding a subtle, yet important, homemade touch to the room.
