After making the laundry detergent I got motivated and made hand soap tonight

Posted by   + Show Post

The hand soap was a pain some soaps either take more soap to work or they won't work at all.

I found out the soap I was using was one of the hard ones to use and after recooking it 1/2 dozen times I finally got it to look like something other than soapy water.  I added hotel soap each time I recooked it until it got to the right consistency.

I will post therecipe after I am sure it will work the 1st time I am making more next week so I will let everyone know then.  

 

 I will make dish soap in the morning.

I am going to the dollar tree and getting the hand soap dispensers and filling them with my hand soap and giving them to my neighbors for Christmas. 

I am making peppermint scented soap and putting them in a white dispenser with a red bow tied around it what do you think.

The recipes I've seen include a bit of glycerin for stablizing.

Quoting 02nana07:

 1 bar of soap of your choice and 1 gallon of water

shred soap add to 1 gallon of boiling water  let it cook on medium heat until it melts

turn it off and leave it for 10-12 hours then mix well and add to soap dispenser for use as hand soap or body wash.

I will let you know how it turns out soon

Which hand soap recipe did you use?
