Yet another thing to add to your list to save money on, liquid hand soap. So simple to make and bonus, it is made by the gallon. I love my homemade recipes that make a large amount of items. Gives me the chance to make bulk amounts so I don’t have make it for 6 months or so. The bar soap you choose is really up to you. I have only come across one brand that does not work so well, and that is Dove. I am not totally sure as to why, but I think it might have something to do with all the extra’s in the soap. This time around I went with Soft Soap brand and picked a fun scent just to see how it would work. Came out like a charm.
What you will need:
1 bar of soap
Doing the deed:
Take the bar soap and grate it, then dump it in a large pot with your water and glycerin. On medium heat stir until all soap is dissolved. I pour mine into a large bowl to cool for 12 hours. It will become a thick gel and you will need to hand whip or use a mixer to break it back up. If it is too thick for your taste, add a little water until you get the consistency you desire. Once you have mixed it up and all chunks are gone, store in a cleaned out milk jug or juice container. I reused our old liquid soap dispenser, but feel free to buy a new one or decorate the old one with glass stones or whatnot. That is all there is too it!
