It worked!!! Now this is the cheats version of liquid hand soap. I will work on one “from scratch” once this is all gone.
I was experimenting with a craft recipe the other day that ended up being a big flop but it gave me this idea. It’s very simple and only has two “ingredients”.
I prefer body wash and liquid hand soap over a block of soap so if you look in my bathroom cupboard you will find an abundance of soap bars from gift packs I’ve received over the years. I’ve tried this with both the creamy soaps and also the clear glycerine type soaps. They both work well. My preference for making this is clear Body Shop soaps or creamy Lush soaps. Today I used Lush’s “Honey I washed the kids soap“.
This is such a cost effective idea also. It’s $6.95 a block. This makes just over two liters of hand soap. Bargain! The Body Shop soaps are approximately $4.95 a bar. It would be even cheaper with groccery store bought soaps.
You can add colouring and essential oils but I find the soap has enough of a scent that I don’t need to. I also like the natural look to it so haven’t add colouring.
These would make a nice gift in a Christmas hamper along with some of my scrubs. This also doubles as a body wash too!
