    I’ve never tried this brand of soap. However, I had a surplus of Neutrogena glycering soap that I decided to turn into liquid soap following this process. I made two huge batches. I was only doing this once. I had a terrible time getting it to gel. The second day after setting I added more grated to each batch. At least this time it got thick. I’m not pleased with the outcome. I don’t know if it was that particular soap or not. It is very stringy to get out of the soap container. One of my sons actually commented on knowing that I was trying to be frugal but not particularly liking this soap I was having us use. Only 2 more gallons for us to go through. Thankfully for him the dial deals have come up lately and I’ve gotten several bottles for him to take to college when he leaves this fall! I would have also liked to use this in my pump containers but can’t mix it and get it to come out of them at all. Any ideas on what went wrong with my process. The good thing in this whole experience is that as I was my hands probably 100 times each day working with all of the kids that I haven’t had any of my eczema on my palms with this soap.

    This is cool, too. It would be interesting to know what the cost for the materials was and how long the liquid soap lasted :) :) Thanks for posting the link to this tutorial, too :) :) Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather ;)

    Very interesting article. I’ve never tried to make liquid soap from bar soap. I do fill my foaming soap pump with tap water and add a splash of DrBronners lavender or peppermint liquid Castile soap. That smells great, foams nicely and one container of dr bronners seems to last for forever! Also pretty gentle on the skin!
