DIY Hand Soap

I think I saved myself a little bit of money this week.  Instead of heading to my favorite bath store for some hand soap (you know the deal, 3 for $9.00) I made my own for just pennies!

You will need:

  • Two bars of soap, grated
  • 2 TBS glycerin
  • 2 Quarts water
  1. Combine all ingredients into a large pot.
  2. Stir and heat until the soap dissolves.
  3. Use a funnel to pour the slightly cooled soap into old, clean soap dispensers.


  • I added some essential oils to make my soap extra fancy.
  • I also used some vintage labels from World Label to give them some pizzazz.
  • After the soap was fully cooled, it turned from clear to white and thickened up.  You can add more water if you would like a thinner consistency.

    Was it hard to grate the soap? How did you do it? That is the only reason I have not made my own. I don’t like graters! :(

    This is a new one for me. I will have to pin it and share with my daughters!
