body-wash I halved this recipe to give it a try. I made one batch with Dial soap for kids & one with Irish Spring. I found that the consistency of both batches were like that of egg white or as my daughter called it, snot. lol. It also doesn't lather like commercial body wash. If you're looking for clean & low in cost, then this may be for you. I wasn't thrilled, but may try it with a higher end soap to see if it is any creamier.
DIY Dove liquid body wash: 1 bar of grated soap, microwaved till melted + 2 cups hot water. Stir over medium heat until COMPLETELY melted-may take a while. Pour into glass jar or bowl to cool. Will thicken over 24 hours. Add more water if it's too thick for you. Pour into plastic bottle for shower use.
