I was sharing this laundry detergent recipe with some ladies on Facebook and got a recipe to make my own liquid handsoap. So...naturally, I finished my dinner and brewed up a batch.
I had this great smelling bar of soap that I had bought a month ago and thought it would be perfect for the job.
It was so easy to make and I liked the results so much that I will probably be making my own handsoap from now on. And let's face it...I was spending a small fortune on liquid handsoap. I mean...I have bottles sitting next to all five sinks in my house!
Homemade Liquid Handsoap
From the Kitchen of:
1 bar of soap
4 cups water
-Use a cheese grater to grate the bar of soap.
-While you do that, bring 4 cups of water to a boil. Then add the grated soap to the pot and stir until all the soap is dissolved.
-The soap will be very runny while it's hot. Allow it to cool and then check the consistency, if it's too thick you can add more water (I added almost 2 cups to mine, but the bar of soap was really hard and compact-I had to use some elbow grease to grate it!). If you add more water, heat up the mixture and stir until the soap and water have mixed completely.
-When the mixture is completely cooled you can pour it into your favorite pump dispenser for use.
