Bar Into Liquid Hand Soap
I have a confession to make: I hate bar soap. It gets dirty, is annoying to handle, and takes too long to use up. Despite this, people like to give me bar soap as a gift, which I feel guilty not using. So I’ve been buying liquid hand soap at $3 a bottle and putting the bar soap in a box with the intention of finding a use for it. Then it occurred to me that I might be able to convert the bar soap into liquid hand soap. Why didn’t I think of it before? So I tried it and was thrilled to find that it works great! Glycerin is made from plant oils and is commonly used in soaps, shampoos, and moisturizers. Ingredients: 1 c soap flakes 10 c water 1 Tbs glycerin Equipment: Cheese grater A large pot Measuring cup and spoons A spatula for stirring A soap container with a hand pump A container to hold excess soap Funnel Directions: First, grate the soap. One bar of soap yielded a little over 1.5 cups of flakes. In a large pot, combine 1 cup soap flakes, 10 cups water, and 1 Tbs glycerin. Good luck!
