How to make Home Made Hand Soap



How to make Home Made Hand Soap

What You Need:
  • A bar of soap
  • A knife or grater
  • Water
  • A sauce pan or pot
  • Essential oil (optional)
  • Soap coloring (optional)
  • Empty soap dispensers

Instructions

  1. Grate or finely chop a bar of soap (about four ounces of soap).
  2. Bring four cups of water to a boil.
  3. Turn off the heat, and add the soap. Stir to melt the soap. Continue stirring until the mixture is fully combined. At this point the mixture will be very liquidy.
  4. Allow the mixture to cool for at least 15 minutes. Then, stir again. At this point, the soap should be slightly thicker.
  5. Allow to cool for another several hours or overnight.
  6. Stir to check the consistency. If it seems too liquidy, reheat and add more soap. If it seems too thick; reheat and add more water.
  7. Once you’re satisfied with your soap, add a few drops of essential oil and coloring, if desired.
  8. Then, pour your soap into dispensers, and enjoy.

 

Tips:

  1. Want to make a bigger or smaller batch? Just use one cup of water for every ounce of soap.
  2. This recipe stores well. Make up a big batch, a few times a year.
  3. Results will vary depending on the type of soap used. Tweak the recipe until it meets your needs.
  4. For a super-smooth consistency, run the finished soap through a blender before pouring into dispensers.

Enjoy!!! :)

  1. great way to use all those hotel soaps, will have to be adjusted for smaller size soaps.

  2. Thank you for this helpful and frugal post. Nice way of going green too, not buying all those bottles and then sometimes, even the dollar store brands aren’t that great. Appreciate it.
