DIY – Liquid Hand Soap

bathrooms.Image via Wikipedia When financial markets are shaky and the Russians start making noises, some of us start to get flashbacks of the cold war and 20% interest rates.  If this describes you and your looking to be self sufficient in your fall out shelter or you’re just an inquisitive person, after the jump is a “formula” for liquid hand soap.

Ingredients

1 bar soap (6 oz)
1 TBS honey
1 tsp glycerin
water

Directions

  • Grate bar of soap into small flakes, pour in blender.
  • Add 1 cup boiling water and whip.
  • Add 1/2 cup room temperature water and stir in blender.
  • Add honey and glycerin, stir.
  • Allow mix to cool (15 minutes) then whip again.
  • Mixture should be 2 cups at this point. Top with cool water until mixture measures between 5 and 6 cups, whip.
  • Pour into containers and allow to cool (do not put lids or caps on yet).
  • After an hour, close containers. Soap mixture will thicken up.
  • Shake before using as needed.

Optional: You can make this with herb infused water, just strain before using.
