DIY: Sugar Hand Scrub

This DIY sugar hand scrub is almost as easy as refilling your regular liquid soap dispenser!

For the past two or three months I have been hooked on DIY sugar scrubs. While browsing Pinterest for some inspiration I stumbled across a link to this DIY Sugar Hand Scrub. Oddly, this is identical to what a childhood friend’s mother always made while I was living in Alberta. I was so excited I dropped everything and made some myself.

To make this all you need is white sugar, liquid dish soap, a container with a lid and a spoon for mixing. Don’t worry about time constraints, this is almost as effortless as refilling your existing soap dispenser.

If you look at the link above you’ll notice that this can be as simple as measuring out your ingredients. With all my measuring cups in the dishwasher and no patience I decided to eyeball it. Ready to eyeball it as well? Start by filling the container halfway with sugar, then slowly add your liquid dish soap. When you the liquid dish soap fills about half of the remaining space (1/4 of the container) start stirring. With the remaining space in the container alternate between sugar and liquid dish soap, stirring as you go. If you find it is too dry, add more liquid dish soap, or if it is too runny, add more sugar. When you are happy with the consistency, secure the lid on your container and store at room temperature.

I am not entirely sure how long this DIY product will last. When I did a quick search online everyone seemed to have different answers. I made a batch that I knew we would be able to use in a week. If anyone makes this and wants to share how long it lasted it would be very much appreciated.

Enjoy those soft hands đŸ™‚

      It was a life saver when I tie dyed my bikini with Sharpies (post coming soon). That stuff needed scrubbing power! It’s also fantastic to use right after gardening.
