Works great! If after a few refills your pump gets gummed up and doesn't want to pump, just unscrew the pump, turn it upside down under warm running water and pump until all the gunk is pumped out. Wallah, works like new.

I attempted to come up with my own ratio years ago and failed miserably. I went foam soap refill CRAZY last night. I had a big bottle of refill with a tiny bit left and filled up one bathroom. I then made an entire bottle in the refill to use at a later date. I made a dawn foam for the kitchen. I held on to my kid's foam pumps, cleaned them out and made a shampoo foam and a body wash foam for her and a baby wash foam for the baby. Then I used my expensive facewash that I'm supposed to lather in my hands first anyway and used it last night. It was AWESOME!!! Thank you so much jp for the right ratio and the trick of using warm/hot water (my mistake before too using cold).

SO excited! I had two dispensers, each with about 1 pump of foam left and COMPANY COMING OVER IN AN HOUR!!!! This technique was a God send for me! I made it with some Grapefruit scented dish soap for the kitchen and then simply used regular soft soap to make the one for the bathroom. THANKS a million for this awesome "recipe"!

This was so awesome - to be honest, I wasn't sure it would work. I used Dawn apple blossom and loved it. I can't wait to try some other scents. With shipping the empty foam soap bottles are kind of expensive, so I just buy a new filled foam soap bottle and refill when empty. They last quite awhile before they don't work any longer. Thanks jp for a great recipe. I've refilled my bottles quite a few times already.

Great idea to post this! We have a larger Dawn foaming dispenser sitting at the kitchen sink, and we fill it with about double this "recipe" (it has a mark of where to fill the water to, since it was made for that). I agree with you though, I have used foaming Dial, but I think Dawn works even nicer for the foaming soap.

My husband said this was the best soap we have ever had. He told me to keep buying this brand! :)
So easy; I use filtered fridge water and heat it for 30 seconds, add my dawn, and stir gently. Love it! I used to have to buy a new soap about every week to ten days (three kids use a lot); this saves me so much money!
