DIY-ish Foaming Soap Refill

This is sort of a DIY, but more of a money-saver tip.

Do you know what the main difference is between regular liquid hand soap and foaming hand wash? Water. I learned this little trick years ago, and it's so simple. It saves money, and reduces waste.

First, you need a foaming handwash dispenser.
It really doesn't matter which brands you choose for this. I always buy whichever is least expensive. So, be very certain that this is not a brand endorsement:
It was just the least expensive liquid hand soap refill at the last time I needed more. I've actually even used dish soap before. Just fill your dispenser about 1/8 full with soap, then fill it the rest of the way with tap water. Replace the lid and shake it up to be sure it's well mixed. That's it!

I do occasionally replace the dispenser when it's worn out, but it's a pretty simple routine all in all. What are some simple things you do around the house to save money?
