Make a whole gallon, 128 ounces, of liquid hand soap for the cost of a bar of soap! I stumbled upon this easy and extremely inexpensive recipe for liquid hand soap at Heavenly Homemaker.
If you’ve never tried making your own liquid hand soap, you’ve got to give this a try. So simple. So safe and pure. And so much less expensive.
Plus, what an amazing gift idea! Make up cute bottles and decorate them with paint pens or ribbons. These would make great gift ideas for housewarming presents, holiday gifts for co-workers, bus drivers and teachers!
Homemade Non-Toxic Liquid Hand Soap – By Laura
4 ounce bar of natural soap (I used a bar of coconut oil soap from Tropical Traditions. Any natural bar of soap would work. I think the bars from Victorian Rose Soap Company would be great!)
1 gallon of water
(One of the article comments also suggests adding 1 tbsp of natural vegetable glycerin if you have trouble with the soap clumping.)
First, heat the water in a pot, just long enough to steam:
In the meantime, grate your bar of soap.
Take the steaming water off the heat. Immediately pour the grated soap into the water. Stir the mixture, then let it sit for about 15 minutes.
Use a hand mixer to blend the soap and water mixture well. Let it sit overnight.
