It’s Sunday! What does that mean? Time for a DIY-not! I’ve been on the prowl for a great DIY for a while now, and this one is inspired by two blog posts: The Farmer’s Nest and Vintage Kids, Modern World.
However, I chose to use the following:
1 4oz bar Kirk’s Castile Soap (so affordable on Vitacost!)
1/2 gallon (8 cups) of water
- Grab the soap! So fresh and so clean, clean! I decided to half the recipe from the aforementioned blog posts, just to see if this actually works.
2. Grate soap. One blog mentions that you can just cut the soap into chunks, but I thought the soap might dissolve more evenly if grated. Plus, it looks cool.
3. Put the soap in a heat-proof jar or any heat-proof vessel. I decided to do this rather than put it on the stove-top.
4. I boiled a 1/2 gallon of water and slowly poured it into the grated soap.
5. Let the soap sit for a few hours. At first, the soap just looked like very thin soapy water. I just took a manual whisk to the solution and whisked away. I suppose you could also use a hand-blender. I then decided to let the soap sit overnight, and woke up to this goodness. I added about 10-12 drops of lavender essential oil, but that’s optional.
So for a little over $1 for a bar of soap, I made 1/2 gallon of liquid soap! Whahoo! Now, go out into the world and enjoy your soap like Oprah enjoys Ninja Turtles!
