Gardener's Hand Scrub

Teresa Jacobson Recipe

By Teresa Jacobson foundmyzen

Prep Time:
No-Cook or Other

Made a few of these to give as gifts to some of the lovely ladies in my life. Great for gardeners but also nice if you just want soft hands! I used the pomegranate scent and I guess male gardeners could use it too because it's not too feminine.


granulated sugar
dawn olay hand renewal

Directions Step-By-Step

Use whatever size wide-mouth jar with lid that you'd like. Pour sugar into jar just below where the lid area begins. Pour that amount of sugar into a metal bowl.
Squeeze in the Dawn Olay Hand Renewal, a little at a time. Stir well. You're looking for a consistency of very grainy but fluffy frosting. not too soupy but not too crumbly either.
Spoon into jar. Decorate jar as desired.
To use: scoop a quarter sized amount into hands and scrub front and backs of your hands. Rinse thoroughly under warm running water. Failure to rinse thoroughly will leave your hands sticky.

Hi Virginia, I just use the plastic bags that you freeze food in, new ones of course, and the large size fits over your foot and up over the ankles as well. Obviously when you people are talking about the Dawn you must be living in USA, we don't have that here in Perth, Western Australia, as far as I know. I make all my own moisturisers, body creams, hair shampoo, hair conditioner, liquid soap, face scrub, you name it i make it, even the dog shampoo so that they are relatively chemical-free as well. Oh I also make up my own laundry powder and save absolutely heaps!!! Only thing I can't do is dishwashing liquid. The companies have made sure that we can't 'copy'. Good luck.
