Running through hand soap at a rapid pace? Necessity is the mother of invention, and our latest discovery is DIY foaming hand wash made from our plant-powered body wash. Truth be told, here at Phlur HQ we have been doing this since we launched the product. (In case you were wondering, our favorite scent to use as hand wash is S.C. 59).

Our super simple recipe is below. 

For our parents who are homeschooling, bring the kids along for the mixing and make this your science project for the day. And maybe, just maybe, your kids will wash their hands without complaining knowing that they made their own soap. Probably not, but one can hope. 

What you’ll need:

  • An empty foaming hand soap pump
  • One part body wash
  • Three parts water


  1. Fill up the empty pump two-thirds of the way full with water. 
  2. Then fill almost to the top with wash.
  3. Give it a good mix and voilà!

Truly some good, clean, fun.
