A lovely homemade liquid soap recipe


Today I will be making soap with a recipe that I have used for a while now. The recipe is very simple and only uses three ingredients .

Homemade Liquid Soap

Grate one bar of sunlight soap and one bar of the nicer soaps for example dove or palmolive, add them to a pot with about six cups of water. I use rainwater. Bring the soap and water to the boil. I give the occassional stir with a wooden spoon. Then give a wizz with a stick blender. Leave it overnight to thicken. water down if desired. Fills 4 or 5 bottles depending on the size. You can reuse shampoo bottles and hand pump bottles. Have a go with this recipe. It is a very
economical recipe.

Happy days.
