This Friday we are doing “Great Idea Day” at the Mom’s group I lead in my community. Each woman brings with her a tip or trick that works for her. It could be a discipline tactic, a favorite product, a great book, how to motivate your kids to clean, a great day trip etc. As I was preparing a few tips to share I thought why not host a Great Idea Day here at Infarrantly Creative!
Now I expect all of you to participate. If you have a blog you have a great idea! Come and share them here on Friday (oh and grab a button on my sidebar).
For now I will leave you with my all time favorite great idea. Some of you may already know this but for others it will BLOW your mind. You are welcome in advance.
I loves foaming hand wash. It saves me time when I wash mine or my kids hands because the soap is already in a lather. I simply hate the regular pump stuff especially when trying to clean a wiggly one-year old girl’s hands. Yes, you can buy foaming hand wash at the store. But why not reuse a foaming hand wash pump and make your own for pennies? I have been making my own for about four years now.
Start with an empty foaming hand wash pump and Goo Gone to get the label off…
I used to use 6 parts water for years but I like 5 parts since having kids and washing my hands one beeeellion times a day, it seems to keep them more moisturized. I mix a big batch and keep them in gallon jugs under each sink.
Then I mix one of the soaps with 40 ounces of water and it lasts me at least 6 months! I like to vary my scents so I have a different scent in each bathroom.
I also do this with my Dawn dishwashing liquid. I got the Dawn Direct Foam over a year and a half ago and now I just keep refilling it.
Foaming hand wash makes me smile…yes it is the little things in life. Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeease join me Friday.
Disclaimer: After a while your pump will stop working and you will have to buy a new one, I guess they are not made to last forever. Try and keep them as dry as possible, that helps.
Also use soap without any of the gritty beads in it.
