For super soft hands all winter long, make this DIY sugar hand scrub with Dawn Hand Renewal Dish Soap and sugar.
I originally shared my homemade DIY Sugar Hand Scrub tutorial a year ago and it’s been extremely popular. I get asked lots of questions about it all over social media and here on The Birch Cottage blog. In fact, I get asked so many questions, that I’ve created a second post that lists some of my most frequently asked questions (FAQ’s) about my DIY Sugar Hand Scrub. You can read my FAQ’s here. You can access the printable labels here. (UPDATE: I’ve also listed all the available labels below under “Supplies “!)
DIY Sugar Hand Scrub
You’ve probably seen many different hand scrubs on Pinterest, but I’m telling you this is one hand scrub you’ve just got to try! In fact, I’m making this DIY Sugar Hand Scrub this year as a Christmas gift to some very special men in our family. My guys love to wash their hands with Dawn Dish Soap – no matter how greasy or grimy their hands, Dawn always does the job! The winter weather here in Ohio can be pretty harsh on hands. The little bit of moisturizer that the Dawn Hand Renewal Dishwashing Liquid provides, is just perfect.
Of course this DIY Sugar Hand Scrub is perfect for all the ladies as well. It is amazing! And will truly leave your hands smooth, silky and soft. Just be sure to rinse your hands well to avoid any sticky residue.

- Dawn Hand Renewal Dishwashing Liquid
- Canning Jars or Decorative Jars
- Spoon (or something to stir with)
- Labels (optional)
- Twine or decorative ribbon (optional)
Fill your jar 3/4 full with sugar.
Add Dawn Hand Renewal Dishwashing Liquid to the bottom ring of the jar.
Stir the sugar and dishwashing liquid until blended well.
You may need to add more sugar or Dawn to fill your jar. I prefer the hand scrub to be a little on the thick side, so I tend to add maybe 3 tablespoons more sugar and blend that well into the mixture.
Now you are ready to add labels to your jars. Since my Hand Scrub is going to be Christmas presents, I created some labels with Photoshop and printed them out on card stock paper. I then cut out the circles and laid them on top of the lid before screwing on the band. This way, I didn’t have to mess with sticky labels that won’t stick or tags that would fall off.
I created two sets of labels actually. One that was for the “Peach Almond” and one for the “Pomegranate” Sugar Hand Scrub.
I then tied some twine around the jar ring to finish off my DIY Sugar Hand Scrub. There you have it! A useful, inexpensive DIY Christmas gift. Actually, it’d make a great gift for just about any occasion. I hope you’ve enjoyed this little tutorial and I look forward to seeing you again here on The Birch Cottage.
Til next time…
