Liquid Hand Soap
- (1) bar of soap, any brand of your choosing
- grater - I just grabbed one from the dollar store
- a large pot that can hold more than 1 gallon of water
- 1 gallon of water
- containers to hold the soap once it is made - I have 4 pump containers and a pitcher to hold the rest
- essential oils, optional
- kitchen funnel, optional
- Bring 1 gallon (16 cups) of water to a full rolling boil.
- While the water is coming to a boil, grate your soap onto a cutting board or plate.
- Once the water has come to a boil, add the soap, turn off the heat and start stirring immediately.
- Continue stirring until all the soap has melted and dissolved into the water.
- Remove from the burner completely and let it sit. Stir the soap every 10-15 minutes for the next hour.
- Let the soap cool completely. It will start to become more gelatinous. If you'd like to add essential oils, this is the time to add them.
- Divide the soap into containers. I have found that using a kitchen funnel makes this much easier.
