Holiday Foaming Soap Tutorial.

Step 1 – Gather the ingredients

Gather all the ingredients that you need. I used a disposable spoon to mix – or a craft stick

Step 2 – Mix the base ingredients

Pour a Cup of the plain soap into a bowl.

Add a couple of drops of food coloring (note that is will be diluted so the coloring can be a little stronger)

Add 6 – 8 drops of fragrance or essential oils.

Mix well.

Step 3 – Dilute the base

Now it’s time to add some water.   I needed to switch bowls to dilute the solution.

Add 2 cups of water.  Make sure that you use Distilled water and NOT tap water.

Gently mix the water and soap solution.

Step 4 – Make the Packaging

Add some beads to bottom of the dispenser (this is just something fun I like to add – not necessary but a nice touch).

Use a funnel and gently pour in the solution.

You might need to let the soap settle and add a little more to the bottle if there is a lot of air in it.

Using double stick tape, attach the printable and then cover with clear packing tape.
