What To Do

  • Grate or finely chop a bar of soap. You can also use a food processor or knife to grate it.
  • Pour water into a saucepan and bring it to a boil. Then, turn off the heat and add your soap flakes.
  • Stir it constantly until soap dissolves into the water. At this point, the mixture will be in a liquid form.
  • Allow the mixture to cool for at least 15 minutes. Then, stir it again. The mixture will get slightly thicker now.
  • Keep it aside and let it cool for 7-8 hours.
  • Stir to check the consistency. If it seems too thin, reheat it and add more soap to it. If it seems too thick, reheat it and add more water.
  • An optional step for a super smooth consistency: Run your finished liquid soap through a blender or use an immersion blender before pouring it into your soap dispensers. 
  • If you are satisfied with the consistency, pour it into soap dispensers and enjoy!
