Make Your Own Gardener’s Hand Scrub


I first came across the recipe for Gardener’s Hand Scrub a few years ago. If you are into homemade scrubs, this is not going to be for you. I have to say I tried to improve on the original recipe and failed. Sometimes the original is just the best. I really like the texture of the original recipe.


You only need TWO items to make this scrub. This scrub is super easy and inexpensive to make . It makes a great gift too- especially for teacher’s appreciation or mother’s day! I always keep a jar by the kitchen sink.


What You Need:

Granulated Sugar (fine)

Moisturizing Dish Soap (like Dawn with Olay Dishwashing Liquid)

Container. (I found my container for $1 at Target)

How much of what you need will depend on the container you are filling. Fill your container 2/3 full of sugar and 1/3 full of dishwashing liquid. (Give or take. Make it to your personal texture preference.)

Just combine the ingredients and stir well. Fill your container(s). Enjoy!




Currently there is a Dawn Printable Coupon for $.25 Off! (For my couponers, you will know this will double up to $.50 off at some stores). (Coupon is under household)

There are also some Sugar Coupons here.

    I am such a huge fan of DIY bath products and this one couldn’t be more seasonably appropriate – I plan on spending a ton of time in the yard this weekend over the holiday and I NEED this scrub. I featured your post this week at #FoodieFriDIY – thank you so much for participating!
