Liquid Glycerin (found in the band aid section at any drugstore or grocery store), one 8 oz bar of soap (Like Meyers, Dr. Bronner's or Yardley) & 1 gallon of water!...maybe add some tea tree oil for the disinfectant properties? | #homemade

    Fifty dollars worth of soap for $4.99, so smart. Mrs. Meyers is the BEST, but so expensive. I wonder if their bar soap could be used in a homemade laundry soap recipe?

    How to Make Liquid Hand Soap from a bar of soap {DIY} The other night I was bathing the Littles and began to look at the ingredients listed on the liquid body wash bottle and started to think about the fact that the majority of it is water, then I looked at the hand wash and same thing.... aqua.  Because most people have turned to liquid soap rather than bar soap I figured there must be a way to convert the cheap bar soap into the expensive liquid soap we all know and

(Don't use soaps with additives like moisturizers, etc such as Dove-they won't work) Heat over med/high heat until dissolved. Cool 12 hours. Mix with hand mixer to make a smooth consistency. Voila! Hand soap/body wash at a fraction of store cost.

DIY Hand Soap: Between the kitchen, the master bath, the guest bathroom and everywhere in between, you end up spending a lot on hand soap. And you could be spending that money on some extra fashionable, home decor! Instead, learn how to make your own!

Ok I'm posting this to ask a question: does making your own bulk handsoap only work with cheaper bar soaps like dove, etc? Can you use those handmade, natural soap bars and it still work and make a lot?

    i saw a post on doing it with Meyer's which is yummy and natural. I haven't tried it myself but it looked like it worked.

  • Kristi Oleson

    I would try it- I made some from a Mrs. Meyer's soap bar its all natural- worked great!

    I tried it with Dr. Bonner's Castile soap. The texture came out really weird, but I put too much glycern in it. Next try I'm going to leave the glycern out - read somewhere that some soaps don't need it. It's kind of experimental. :)

    i tried it and it was so runny, i ended up putting a bit of salt it got to solid i just threw it out.

  • LowCarb Katie

    I made it with castile soap (1 bar, shredded), 2 Tbsp glycerine and 1 gal distilled water. Add soap to water and heat until soap melts. Add glycerine and stir until it melts. Let cool and pour into foam dispenser. Add essential oils for frargrance if you like! works GREAT!

DIY - Homemade soap - rebatching bar soap to liquid soap. I used Olay since I had that on hand. I used 1 bar lotion soap to 2 cups hot water. Let it sit overnight (12 + hours). Perfect hand soap.

    with this method did it feel snotty?

  • Melissa S.

    This batch did not feel snotty. I can't say that if I tried making it this way again it would be the same though. I tried some with glycerin and it was really snotty feeling.
