So the foaming hand soap thingey is much better for my 6yo... instead of using like a half a cup of soap (exaggerating of course). Can you just open it up and refill with dr bronners or similar soap? do you need special soap? I usually buy stuff like that in bulk to save $$ and packaging.
can you reuse those foaming soap dispensers?
Yup we do this also with Dr. Bronner's - about 1 to 4 or 1 to 5 soap-to-water ratio. Lasts forever, smells nice, and you don't have soap gunk stuck between your fingers and stuff.
Sometimes it can get clogged up (I think this is with any soap dispenser) and either not come out normally or the pump refuses to go back up. If that happens fill up a cup with hot water, remove the pump part, stick the bottom in the cup of hot water and squirt it for a while. That seems to clear up any clogs.
great idea...i think i might try this with the expensive california baby soap that i love but try not to buy b/c it is $$$$
We do the same with method pump containers, & methods soap (Dr. B's is too drying for me on my skin) I use typically 1/4 soap and then water. I've had my containers for well over 2 years and they are still going strong!
This also works great for concentrated dishsoap - again 1/4-1/3 soap and then water, and makes it last so much longer for your $$.
