Take it and Make it - Week #2

I'm so glad you stopped back by to find more things to TAKE and then MAKE!

Remember, there's no telling what you'll find to take away with you each week. 
 This week, it's a frugal tip.  (I LOVE frugal!)

Don't throw away your empty foaming soap container once it's empty.  Do you realize there is really NOTHING special about these?   It's simply in the pump mechanism.  You can easily make your own for literally PENNIES!

 Save your empty soap container.

 This particular bottle of body wash has lasted me for WAY over a year.  I got it for $1 at The Dollar Tree and use it to fill 5 pumps.

You need a VERY small amount of the body wash.

Fill the rest of the bottle SLOWLY with water.  Do not fill all the way to the top.

 Replace the pump and shake to mix back together.  
Voila'...  You're very own foaming hand soap.
Now wasn't that EASY?

What else can you find to TAKE with you and MAKE?

Click below for more great ideas.  
I would LOVE for you to link up your own Take it and Make it post by following these guidelines.

1) Write a post about ANY activity or idea that others can TAKE away with them and MAKE.
2)  Items can be free, paid, personal, school, ideas, activities, etc.
3)  No direct links to your store.  It must be to a BLOG Post.
4)  You must include the picture with a link directing others back to my Thursday post.
5)  Please follow the rule of three.  Please leave comments for the two links before you and 1 after you.


  1. I've been doing the same thing for awhile. This also works with the foaming dish soap dispensers. I just put a small amount of dish soap in the bottom of the dispenser and add water. It's an easy way to save a little money!

  3. I've been doing this too. It's an amazing money saver! Do you boil your water first before mixing it in? I do, but I'm not sure if it's necessary.

  4. Thanks again for hosting this linky! It is amazing to have a one stop shop of amazing and useful ideas and information.

  5. Neat idea! I didn't know there wasn't anything special about the actual soap that made it foam. I am going to try that.
