lavender and orange foaming soap recipeThis morning I whipped up some DIY Lavender and Orange hand soap in less than 30 seconds, and here’s how to do it. My green friends will all agree that making your own home cleaning products is a cinch. It’s just a matter of having a few items on hand.  There are literally thousands of uses for homemade cleaners and self-care items. Plus, it’s a worthy investment for those on any kind of budget because a little will go a long way.  Instead of buying expensive hand soaps (that may or may not contain chemicals or contaminants), you can easily whip up your own.  Picture spending $6 on a hand soap at Whole Foods, and then picture spending about that same amount of money on a few key ingredients that will keep your hand soap dispenser filled for months on end.

This is gentle on the skin and smells really fresh.  I keep this near the sink in the kitchen… I like orange and citrus scents in the kitchen which is great after handling fragrant food like garlic or onions.  It’s super gentle too, which is key for those of us washing our hands all day long.  Between diaper changes, nose wiping, and cooking, I wash my hands 57 times a day. Hi, sandpaper hands.

This is just one of a zillion possible combinations that can be achieved.  Earth friendly, bio-gradable, chemical-free, gentle, and safe for everyone. Happy Sunday, everyone 🙂
