We use to spend a lot of money on these liquid hand soaps.

One way we save money is by making our own for what I spend on one bottle liquid hand soap, I can make a whole gallon.



Grate a whole bar of your favorite soap into a huge stock pot.  Use a natural soap because it doesn't leave your hands dry and rough like most commercial soaps.

After you grate your soap it will look like this :

In your large pot add 1 gallon of water and turn on medium until all the grated soap is melted
(Be careful not to burn yourself )

Once all the soap is melted turn off the heat, let sit over night. In the morning it will be thick, you can then add some water to thin the mixture then use a funnel to pour it into a old milk jug.

You can make all different scents and save money in the process ENJOY!!!

  1. I have been enjoying reading through your blog….I use about 1/8 cup of Dr Bronner’s Liquid Castile Soap and pour it into a foaming soap pump bottle. Then top it up with water. Done! You can get Dr Brinner’s in many different essential oil scents too 😊
