Pinned it! | Gardener’s Hand Scrub

30 Jan

 I love Pinterest.

It’s a great place to find ideas for crafts. That’s where I got the project I made today. I’m really excited about it, it was super easy to do.

This stuff is great. It rips through the grossest stuff you can get on your hands, like butter or mud. It also leaves your skin REALLY super soft. Someone on another blog compared it to a product you can buy from Mary Kay that’s rather expensive. I don’t know anything about that, but it’s kind of neat to think about how we can create this inexpensive alternative.

The original post from Pinterest took me here.

First you need three ingredients.

1.)  Olay Hand Renewal Dish Soap

2.)  White Sugar

3.)  A container

Next, you fill your container about ¾ full of sugar. It’s important that it’s white sugar because brown sugar will turn the scrub from a pretty pink to a brownish pinkish mess.

Once you have the sugar in, just squeeze the dish soap in on top, stirring a little as you go. I think the best dish soap you can use is the kind with Olay Hand Renewal. It really does make a difference in how your hands feel after you wash them with the scrub.

I didn’t stir as I squeezed, so mine looks liquidy in the pictures below. Have no fear! After I mixed everything around it was the correct consistency.

Isn’t that easy? I love the cute little jars I found to make these in. They’re the perfect size for giving. I’m thinking that with a little ribbon and a festive notecard I can hand these out as early Valentines. ❤
