When it comes to cleaning products, I don’t take the time to do a lot of DIY projects. I try to find natural cleaning products on sale, and stock up when I can. But when I saw different tutorials online to make this liquid hand soap, out of a bar of Mrs. Meyer’s soap I knew I wanted to try it!
I love using Mrs. Meyer’s soap, the smell is amazing and it’s all natural. But at $5.00 a bottle, it is a splurge. I tried making my own liquid hand soap, and made a gallon of liquid soap for about $5.00 on supplies! That gallon of liquid soap is worth $50.00 of Mrs. Meyer’s hand soap. I find the savings to be worth my time in making this!
Open up a bar of Mrs. Meyer’s bar soap in your favorite scent, and admire how pretty it is. It’s your last look at this lovely bar of soap!
Grab a hand grater, and start grating that lovely bar of soap into tiny shreds.
Once you have the whole bar of soap grated up, stop and enjoy the smell for a minute.
Pour your grated bar of soap into a gallon of water. Add 2 TBS of liquid glycerin as well.
Stir your soap and liquid glycerin together over medium to high heat. Stir occasionally as you wait for the soap to melt.
The soap is all melted! Now just turn off the heat, and let it sit on the stove for 10-12 hours, or overnight. I let mine sit overnight and preferred that. You are waiting for this soap to thicken up as it sits.
After sitting overnight, the soap is nice and thick!
After the soap has sat overnight, mix it up using a hand blender. This helps breaks up the thickness and blend it together well, before you put it into a container.
Pour it into a gallon container, label it, and you are all done! It really doesn’t take very long to make this, and the cost is a huge savings!
I haven’t tried making this with any other brand of bar soap, so I can only recommend using Mrs. Meyer’s bar soap for this recipe to work.
