Crunchy Living: Homemade Liquid Hand Soap

As part of getting rid of toxins in my house, plus save a little money, I have been on the hunt for different products that I can make at home.   I normally buy the big container of liquid hand soap, which last a while, but I noticed that I can make my own for even cheaper!


  • A bar of Soap
  • Water


  1. Grate or finely chop the bar of soap
  2. Bring 4 cups of water to a boil
  3. Turn off heat and add in soap
  4. Continue to stir until combined
  5. Allow to cool for 15 minutes
  6. Stir again
  7. Allow to cool for several more hours
  8. Place in soap dispensers


Personally, I would have a cheaper pot to make this, so that you are not using pots that you cook in.  To make a bigger batch use 1 ounce bar soap for 1 cup of water.


Do you have any greener products that you make at home?  Please let us know!
