DIY Hand Scrub


This little DIY project takes less than 10 minutes to make. You could make it for yourself or give it as a gift. It is kind of like Mary Kay’s Satin Hands, and I was inspired by an article that I found on Pinterest (original directions found here). To see how I made it continue reading below. :)

I used an old garlic jar (I like how it’s so little), but you can also purchase different sized mason jars at any craft store.


Next, I filled the jar about 3/4 of the way with white sugar, and I added Dawn Olay Hand Renewal Dish Soap (the pink kind) to the rim of the jar. I mixed the sugar and soap together until it was nice and pasty. You may need to add more sugar if your scrub is too liquidy.


Action Shot!

I love the light pink color that it turned after mixing it together.


I added a string of twine, and it was done! It left my hands feeling so smooth and CLEAN, and it smells wonderful too. :)

The original site called this “Gardener’s Hand Scrub.” This is the perfect excuse to start on that herb garden that I’ve been wanting to make.

This will make such a cute gift for someone along with some gardening things (gloves, pot, seeds, flower).
