I am sure you are well aware but thanks to the Coronavirus, we have a temporary shortage on several household products that we use every day. Most items are back in stock but the one thing I still cannot find is hand soap. It’s not readily available online either.
My solution…. make your own! If you’ve got empty foaming hand soap dispensers and dish soap you can easily make your own! That’s all it takes (and water).
TIP: If you are having trouble removing the label scroll down to see how I did it in just minutes.
DIY FOAMING HAND SOAP
First, fill your foaming hand soap dispenser about 1/4 full of liquid dish soap. Then you fill it the rest of the way with water (leaving some room at the top for the lid so that it doesn’t overflow). Give it a good shake and you are done.
I recently bought blue Dawn dish soap at Sam’s so that’s what I used but any dish soap will work.
EASY. And cheap.
HOW TO EASILY REMOVE LABELS
I used an empty foaming hand soap dispenser that I bought at Target. It had a large label that I wanted to remove. It peeled off easily but it left a sticky mess on the bottle.
To remove this I used one of our favorite cleaning products….. CitraSolv. **I highly recommend it. It is wonderful to clean off anything greasy or sticky!**
Just put a little on a paper towel and start rubbing. It did leave a film on my dispenser so I just rubbed it down with blue Dawn and it came right off.
Stay tuned because I will be posting more tips for surviving this crazy time stuck at home (from diy cleaning to fun ideas for kids).
One thing I am going to do with my son this afternoon is bake some muffins. Most kids love to help in the kitchen and a simple muffin recipe not only gets them away from the tv but they learn and get a yummy snack!
