Making 4 QUARTS of liquid hand soap from ONE bar of soap!

How To Make Liquid Soap For Super Sensitive Skin - #For, #How, #Liquid, #Make, #Sensitive, #Skin, #Soap, #Super, #To #DIY Don’t miss out! Follow DIYcozyHome.com on Facebook and bring more love and life into your home. This is a really great recipe for those of you who have really sensitive skin. I know I can start to break out in hives sometimes when I switch bar soaps or accidently get a new type of bar...
Making 4 QUARTS of liquid hand soap from ONE bar of soap! TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 2011 Domestic Goddess Dress Up: Making Liquid Soap This tutorial is a little different, mainly because what I did may not work for you.. it's quite a fickle project. But not to worry! The product you get will be hand soap just the same, and quite possibly better than mine.This is a great project for people with super sensitive skin who have only found bar soaps that are gentle enough for them, and we all know how much we hate bar soap. It gets dirty and all cracked and slips out of your hands. No good. This soap can be used as a sink-side hand soap or as a body wash.It's SUPER easy and well worth the time. I always make sure that the time I put onto my projects is worth the money saved, and this most definitely is.What you need:A large pot, a jar for extra soap shavings, containers for storing soap, a spoon for stirring, measuring cups and spoons, a grater and bowl, a soap container with hand pump, glycerine, and a bar of soap. Some of these things are not in this lovely picture.1 Cup of Bar of soap - Any brand should work, I've heard Yardley's works really well but I've never even heard of that brand and as you all know I love my Mrs. Meyers, so that's what I used.1 TBS of Glycerin - you can get this at any pharmacy. I got mine at Target and they keep it behind the counter, so you'll just have to ask if you don't see it on the isles. One bottle will last you AGES.10 Cups of WaterAnd there's your ingredients.Directions-First, shave your bar of soap with a small grater ( I bought a special "soap grater" and am now wondering why I did, it's not like the soap gets it dirty and unsafe for using with food...)Isn't it so cute and curly?Note: Mrs. Meyers bar soaps are quite a bit bigger than the regular size, so how much you get out of your bar will vary. I got about 4 cups of shavings, compacted. I put the extra soap in a jar for next time.In a large pot, combine water, soap flakes and glycerin. Turn on medium-low and stir until soap dissolves. This happens fast, just a minute or two. Let the soap cool completely and use a funnel to pour into your soap container. That's it! Unless....Your soap is still looking really watery. This happened to me, so, being the over-doer I am, I doubled the recipe (except the water.) I put another cup of soap and another tablespoon of glycerin. This helped a little bit, but not nearly enough, so I went to bed and let it sit overnight, giving it a chance to cool and thicken up. And in the morning.. it had only thickened up a little bit. So, I went to the trusty worldwide web and found another thing I could do. Blend.And I blended.And it worked. (insert another praise for the extremely versatile Vitamix, haha)It thickened right up in about 2 minutes. It's still a bit runny, but it's works great, and in the couple weeks since I made my soap it has gotten thicker still.You can see in this picture that it's still quite runny, this is right after I made it. Now it's much much thicker, almost to "store bought" consistency.Now, following the recipe I did, it said that I would get about 2 quarts of soap.... I ended up with more than 4. Good thing I had containers on hand (you need to as well.) So really, I used half of my soap (about $2) and 2 tbs. of glycerine... (maybe 20 cents?) and got 4 QUARTS of hand soap. That will last us quite a while, talk about savings!Next time I think I will cut down on the amount of water I use and see if that makes much of a difference. But that won't be for a while, I've got soap coming out of my ears.And the last wonderful thing about this project... the cleanup. Everything is all soapy already, so you just have to rinse and dry! Ta da! I hope you try and like this great project. Enjoy!

Built in nook for purses, cell phones, mail. I can see this as being HUGELY useful right inside the door you use most frequently (front door, garage door, etc.). One thing I'd change - I would probably "hide" this, maybe behind a picture frame on hinges, a chalk or bulletin board, etc. I don't necessarily want guests to *see* my mail, keys, purse, whatever.
Right inside the front door Built in nook for purses, cell phones, mail! Don't forget to add an outlet too for a charging station.

Crib Mattress turned in to a kids reading nook. - Wonder if this would work in a guest room under a day bed...
Repurposing a crib mattress into a reading nook. (Image via Pinterest ) Eighteen months ago, we added a room over the garage to be a shared bedroom for our older 2 boys. It's a large room with fantastic light. I know you readers think I can revamp furniture really well, but what you don't know is that I absolutely struggle to decorate an entire room and have it look pulled together. It gives me hives just trying! This is a space in the boys room that, obviously needed love. When I saw the above image, I hauled our extra crib mattress (that we use during transitioning our kids from crib to bed) out of the closet and threw it in that space. It fit perfectly...however, it sat on a heating vent, so I knew it needed to be raised. Enter my father-in-law...Bill. Fabulous man! Helps me with anything power tool related. I know I could learn these tools, but he says he enjoys doing it so.... Anyway, I had 4 old table legs that I'd gotten at an estate sale awhile back for fifty cents each. They were waiting for a purpose...and now they had one. My FIL sawed them in half to make them just the right size for a daybed. He got longer screws to go in the top of them so that they would attach safely and make the bed sturdy...since there would be adults and kids sitting on this. He took a really thick piece of plywood and cut it to the dimensions of a crib mattress. I painted it Colonial Red by Rustoleum, and here my friends, is the beginning of a reading nook! I've got plans for curtains, book holders (another creation that my FIL made...I painted them but need to re-paint...they look B-A-D) and more pillows. Stay tuned! And I'm completely geeking out over THIS that I picked up today. It need LOTS o' work...right now, I'm going out to the garage to find out why there is a huge piece of plywood WITH contact paper on it, nailed to the original top. What if the top is perfect?! ~Allison Linking here
