D.I.Y. Liquid Soap

Making your own liquid soap is great for so many reasons. It saves you money, you can customize it however like and the most important part, it reduces the use of plastic. Save your soap dispenser and reuse it. I've been using the same bottle for about a year. Whenever I need more liquid soap, I just buy a couple bars of soap and turn them into liquid soap.

A tool you might want is stick blender. It helps mix and turn the soap liquidy. I found one at the resale shop for like $3 and it's strictly for soap. 

You will need a gallon of water, 8 to 10 ounces of your favorite bar soap and some avocado oil. The oil is not necessary but it's really great for your skin. I use about a tablespoon. 

Grate your soap or cut it really finely. Bring the gallon of water to a boil. Remove from the heat and add the soap. Stir to help the soap disolve. Then just let it sit for 8 to 24 hours. It will turn into a glop of soap. Blend it, stir it, mix it up. You need to turn the glop into a liquid. Now just store it in your gallon container and in your body wash bottle. It's ready for use.

I love this stuff and I hope you will too.
