I bought a lovely quality vegetable oil soap on special offer at a local drugstore (€1.50 for two bars). I grated one of them, which takes just about five minutes.
Then I took eight tablespoons of the grated soap and dissolved it in about 350ml of hot water, stirred it up well and left it to solidify. Later I added another 350ml of hot water to the soapy mass, mashed it up and stirred it. The following day I did the same.
All in all, with just 8 measly tablespoons of soap I filled this kilo bucket (recycled yoghurt tub) and this recycled handsoap refill full of homemade liquid handsoap!
The stuff in the tub still needs to be diluted once again because it is too solid.
We won’t need handsoap for quite some time, and because the soap I used to grate was such lovely quality it smells gorgeous.
It leaves me thinking: why is liquid handsoap so fashionable and bars of soap are not anymore?
