Liquid Hand Soap Refill steps

Pick a scent to make hand washing dishes enjoyable

Step 1: Gather your tools

Dilute at Home. It's easy.

A bag of Instant Liquid Soap dilutes into 1 quart (32 oz.) liquid soap in a few minutes

Here's what you will need:

  1. 1 bag of Liquid Soap Refill. There are 5 scents to choose from
  2. 1 soap dispenser bottle
  3. A spoon or chopstick to stir with

Step 2: Just add water

1 bag makes 1 quart (32 oz.) Liquid Soap Refill

  1. Open bag at notch.
  2.  Fill with water to top of label and gently stir. Soap dissolves in 5-15 minutes
  3.  Pour into your soap dispenser.

Once you do this, it will remain a stable, beautiful liquid Castile soap. It's shelf life is unlimited. 

Instant Liquid Soap will not separate, coagulate or go back to being a solid.

Waterless Hand Soap

Take Liquid Hand Soap Refill further and make Waterless Hand Soap.

Waterless Hand Soap has so many uses. We have renamed it Go Soap, since Waterless Hand Soap doesn't translate well into English. It means the soap has been diluted with water, making it very useful in waterless locations. There is enough soap in the solution to be effective, but it is a small enough amount to evaporate.

What is a waterless location?

  • the car
  • a restaurant table
  • the hiking trail
  • a subway or taxi cab or Uber
  • your office desk
  • walking anywhere

You get the idea.

Go Soap (aka Waterless Hand Soap) dilute ratio

We have renamed Waterless Hand Soap to Go Soap.

You have an empty Waterless Hand Soap 2 oz. spray bottle and want to refill it. Make a Go Soap refill. 

Dilute one bag of Instant Liquid Soap into one quart of liquid soap (32 oz.).

Follow the instructions on the package.

Pour 1/2 of the quart of liquid hand soap (16 oz.) into a one gallon container and fill it SLOWLY with water. This makes 1 gallon of Go Soap, aka waterless hand soap, that you use as hand sanitizer replacement and general cleaner.

Refill an empty spray bottle to use on everything. Click here for more uses  

Eco Friendly Packaging Materials

ILS dilute 2This is Instant Liquid Soap bag, filled with water in the diluting process. I have the bag sitting in a bowl as a precaution, since the compostable begins to biodegrade almost immediately.
ILS dilute 1The Instant Liquid Soap bag, filled with water sitting in a bowl. Keep it neat and simple.

These bags are meant to compost. The eco friendly packaging material the bags are made out of are kraft paper lined with plant plastic, which is made out of cane.

Most “compostable packaging" take 12-18 months to begin composting or the packaging simply breaks down into smaller pieces of plastic and doesn’t actually compost at all. . These bags will compost in a good compost pile in 3-4 months. So when you fill the bag with water, not only does the soap begin to turn into liquid soap, the bag will begin its composting process.

The way I dilute the soap is to fill the bag and then I go do something else. Sometimes I’ll come back 3-4 hours later and maybe a 1/2 of a baking teaspoon has seeped into the paper. I leave the bag on my kitchen sink drainboard, or place it in a bowl. It could take 15 minutes or more to dilute if you have a cold house. This is normal. If you want the dilution time to be shorter, next time try warmer water.

Take part in water conservation efforts

Many liquid soaps, natural or synthetic are thickened with a liquid vinyl gel, known as a poly acrylic acid. It is designed to expand many times its size when it absorbed water and swells.

This poly acrylic acid (otherwise known as liquid plastic), is in many household cleaning products, personal case products, diapers,  and in many more non soap industries.

If you truly would like to take part in the water conservation effort, using non thickened natural soap, sold dry is an easy way to accomplish many things at once.

You immediately stop shipping water around the world and you take plastic out of the equation. 

Repurpose an old bottle to use for your soap dispenser. This is a ketchup bottle. The nozzle dispenses beautifully.

I refilled a soap bottle I took out of the recycle bin. You could use a funnel if you wish. Within a few minutes I was doing the dishes. Reuse a plastic bottle and do your part to help with water conservation efforts. Quick and easy.

Use as an old fashioned non toxic bubble bath. Read about it here.

Consider this:

Refill your waterless hand cleaner. Replace your irritating hand sanitizers with alcohol free hand sanitizer,

Instant Liquid Soap - 100% saponified organic coconut Castile soap.

Going camping? travel light, dilute with water at your campsite, and be clean using a biodegradable, plastic free, natural soap.
