Enter: homemade shave cream. This recipe is adapted from Reader's Digest Homemade book (I highly recommend this book if you're interested in learning about other homemade items).
Here's what you need to make this homemade solution:
- 1 cup conditioner
- 1 cup shampoo
- 5 tablespoons baby oil
- 5 tablespoons hand cream
- Use a large bottle or some other large storage container to store the shave cream. Pour in conditioner first, then shampoo.
- Add baby oil; then hand cream.
- Secure the container and shake. Let mixture sit for about an hour.
Here's the estimated cost to make this homemade solution:
Hand cream = $0 (I just use little bottles of body lotion I receive for free from Bath and Body Works)
Conditioner = $0.25
Shampoo = $0.25
Baby oil = $0.30
We made this back in May, and we still have about a quarter left so this has been a huge cost savings for us.
