DIY Liquid Hand Soap with a Magic Bullet
My Magic Bullet is great for small shakes and quick drinks but who would think of making DIY Liquid Hand Soap. I did.
Problem: Soap Pieces
Simple Solution: DIY Liquid Hand Soap
Have you ever wondered what to do with those small unmanageable bars of soap. When we were young my mother would melt them down and we would make soap balls. When you’re young that’s fun, now it seems messy.
I have been saving small soap pieces for over a year.
My husband faithfully adds to the bag, but not without asking, “Why are we saving these small pieces”. I always answered, “I going to make soap”. After a year of saving soap pieces he started asking, “When are you going to make soap”? My husbands attitude is, use it or get rid of it, it’s taking up space. However, I have that one day spirit, one day I will need it, one day I will use it, one day I going to wish I haven’t thrown it away. As you can imagine this creates a lot of unfinished projects or I might need it piles.
Now that it’s getting cold and dark at 5:30 I have a chance to work on my “one day” piles. Today, I thought I might tackle the soap bag and make DIY liquid hand soap. This is probably the easiest project on my list.
My first thought was to grate the soap with a hand grater, after three pieces I was bored. I looked across the room and spotted my Magic Bullet on the counter. Now this was an answer to my prayer.
I took my Magic Bullet glass, filled it with soap pieces, and added 8 ounce of water. This was pure genius, only two ingredients for great liquid hand soap. The Magic Bullet made a nice soapy mixture. I wanted a fresh scent so I added Jasmine essential oil. If you know me I could not stop there I added Pure-Castile Soap for a thickener, I thought the water made it too runny. I was left with small soap pieces in the bottom of the cup, so I used that in a soap mold. (That’s another post, maybe next week
Since I do a lot DIY projects I already had everything on hand, ie. castile soap and essential oil which made this DIY Liquid Hand Soap virtually free. I was very pleased with my final results so I probably will not need to purchase liquid hand soap for a while.
I still have plenty of soap to practice with so I will keep you posted if I change the recipe. BTW if you don’t have a Magic bullet just melt your soap and water using a pot or double boiler.
