Easy Recipe for Homemade Liquid Soap

I love this post from Savvy Housekeeping on how to take all your dried-up bars of soap and make something useful from them–liquid soap! I will try this tomorrow once I get the ingredients. Thank you for the great tutorial!

A few days later.…okay folks, this isn’t the easiest thing in the world to do! True, using Dove for Sensitive Skin is not an ideal soap to use–the flakes did not easily melt. Today, I used an old dried up bar of whatever was sitting in the kids’ bathroom. A better outcome, but not sure what I was expecting…at first. I expected a lovely pearly liquid soap to appear right away, but it was sort of clear and too watery when it was hot.

But…I actually forgot that the pot was cooling–and hours later I finally checked it. I was happily surprised to find a pot full of lovely pearly white liquid soap! The trick is to let it cool a long time. It was a bit gloppy until I mixed it a bit and poured it into a bottle. The consistency is just right.

Oh, and I spent $6.00 at CVS for a small bottle of glycerin in the beauty department.
