Got a quick money saving DIY for you today. I love this recipe for a Hand Renewal Scrub. They sell these scrubs at nice store like Bath and Body Works for $12.99 but did you know you can make your own for less than $2.00 bucks?! Yeah! I use this for scrubbing my hands clean after gardening and for my own do it yourself manicures and pedicures at home.
· Sugar - about 2 cups
· 1 bottle of Dawn hand Renewal Dish soap
· 1 tight lid container
The Sugar was on sale for .99 cents for 4 lbs. I often find this price you just have to look at your sale ads each week it goes down to that price every 8 weeks or so.
The Dawn Hand Renewal Dish Soap goes on sale for .99 cents every other week or so at either Walgreens and CVS when its gets to that price I go in with a coupon and by a few to have on hand. Cost with coupon is 74 cents.
I already had a container so it cost nothing.
Total Cost: $1.73
Measure 2 cups sugar in container and then slowly mix in the hand soap while stirring. As it incorporates the consistency, it will resemble the finished product of a hand scrub. You might not use all the dish soap which is okay. I usually have about 1/4 of the bottle remaining.
This scrub is awesome and leaves your hands super smooth. You could add essential oils to it if you prefer. This would make an awesome gift to give someone and you could really have fun with the packaging.
