Make liquid soap

It's not hard to make liquid soap from leftover bar soap scraps. First, grate the soap or chop it finely, then add an equal amount of water and let it set until it gets goopy. If you have a blender, you can use that to help smooth the mixture, or you can whisk or beat it by hand. Put it in a pump bottle left from other liquid soap, shampoo or something similar. Sometimes the labels on those bottles will peel off and you'll have a neat free pump bottle for your free liquid soap.

You don't even have to grate/cut the soap. Just put it in a Mason jar and add hot water to it. It will turn to gloop soon enough, and you can then blend it into very nice and silky liquid soap.

I'm sure you're right; I'm just impatient and want it done as soon as possible. :)
