Today I am going to show you how to make a DIY a liquid soap easy out of those old tiny soaps that you get from hotels. When you go on a vacation, and you feel it's such a waste to leave the soaps so you say "I should take these with me" or "look free soap, let me bring a lot of soap home". I've been doing that my entire life like since I was twelve. Every time I go on vacation with my family, I'll be the one in charge of taking the soap. Did we ever use the soap? No, because we just do like to buy our soap. It was wasteful, and underneath my sink I have like twenty bins of soaps. So I am going to figure out how to make use of it. I searched online on how to make a liquid soap out of bar soap, and that's what I am going to show you here.

  3. 3
    Rub the soap with the cheese grater until you have one cup of soap.
    It took me about 4 to 6 of small pieces of soap to make one cup, but it could be just one normal large soap.

    Turn on the stove and keep it up around the height level, and wait for the soap to dissolve, so that is totally just a running water and it doesn't have any particles or anything in it.

    The soap now is totally dissolved.
    if there is a little occasional random floating pieces don't worry about it, that's totally fine, as long as over the warming majority of it is dissolved. Then we can turn he stove off and go on to the next step.

    Now, we have to wait for it to cool.
    a lot of the websites are saying to wait for 10 hours. to gain time we will put it in the fridge and check on it every hour, it shouldn't take too long, just until it gets thicker in consistency but not rock solid. in the purpose of this video, we have some remedies to help if it's rock solid, just it needs to be thicker than water.
