The Best Soap Hack

The Best Soap Hack

We've all been there: desperately trying to squeeze the last drops of soap from the dispenser in the bathroom, wondering why it's the item you always forget to buy. Of course, there's likely a stack of soap bars stuffed in in the back of the drawer, but bars are so much messier and get grimy after a while. Well, why not turn those un-used bars into the liquid soap that you are always spending money on? All you need is water, a grater, and a bit of time. (And the soap bar! obvs.)

The Easiest Liquid Soap. Ever.

Ingredients:

  • One bar of soap, 100 grams - I used a nice smelling vegetal soap from L'Occitane that was a gift from forever ago. The only thing you need to ensure is that there is glycerin in the ingredients
  • Seven cups of water 
  • Cheese Grater
  • Big Jug

Instructions:

  1. Bring the water to a boil in a big pot.
  2. Grate the bar of soap. You should end up with a bit more than a cup. It will end up looking something like fine parmesan cheese - I grated it onto a flexible cutting board to make it easy to add later.
  3. Add the grated soap to the water, and stir.
  4. Let it simmer for about a minute, stirring until all the soap is dissolved and incorporated into the water.
  5. Turn off the heat, and let it sit overnight. Don't stress if it doesn't look thick, it needs time for the glycerin to cool and thicken again.
  6. In the morning, take all your lovely soap and store it in an easy-pour jug
