I've managed to replace most of the cleaning and body care products in our home with more natural options, but we're still using conventional hand soap.  

 

It seems like natural hand soaps are super expensive and my kids often go crazy with it, so I'd just cringe to see it wasted.  Anybody found a great cost-effective solution?

I refill a foaming liquid soap dispenser with water and a generous squirt of Dr. Bronner's. Works great.

Works great and super cheap. We bought a gallon of Lavendar Dr. Bronners and its lasted for about 6 months so far and its not half gone yet.
