Diy Liquid Hand Soap

diy liquid hand soap

Making handmade liquid soap from natural soap bars is not only better for the environment, but it is a huge money saver as well. While the prospect of making your own hand soap might seem like a huge time investment, it is a very simple project.


4 ounce bar of natural soap

2 quarts of water


1 metal grater

large pot

hand mixer or whisk

container for storage


Grate your soap into a fine pile.

Heat the water; when water begins to simmer, add grated soap. Mix well, and remove from heat.

Allow mixture to sit for 15 minutes, and mix well with a hand mixer or whisk.

Allow mixture to sit over night. Stir soap mixture to test its consistency. If it is too thin, you may reheat and add more soap; of it is too thick, you may reheat, add more water, and mix well again. Remember to let soap set again if you adjust the consistency.

Pour soap into your favorite reusable container, or reuse disposable plastic containers. Store your extra liquid hand soap in air-tight container.
