Making Liquid Castile Soap From Bars



I'm sure you've seen how much money you can save when you make your own products using liquid castile soap.  Or that you can make so many homemade products with liquid castile soap that you'll stop buying hand soap, dish soap, laundry detergent or even shampoo at the store. 

While there are so many benefits to using liquid castile soap, it can come with a larger price tag than I would like to pay.  I know over the long run that it's cheaper than buying store bought items to make your own.  But, I also know that you can buy castile soap bars really cheap online or in grocery stores.

Making hard soap into liquid

I started searching online to see if there was a way to easily turn bar soap into liquid soap.  Turns out, there were multiple ways to do this.  I wanted it to be simple and easy, with kitchen equipment that I have on hand (not the immersion blender that I don't own).  I read several articles about the "right" way to do it and decided to try it my own way.

The hard soap needs to get hot enough to melt, then hot water is added to it.  The two are blended together and then allowed to cool before being put into a storage container. 

The soap gets hot the fastest when chopped up into smaller pieces.  To do this, I grated my bars of soap using the large holes of my cheese grater. I grated them directly into my crock pot.
