How to turn leftover soap slivers to liquid handwash

We all have those tiny, ugly soap slivers at home. We often discard them thinking that they are of no use but do you know left over soap can save you some money. I will tell you how. These left over soap pieces can be used to make a liquid hand wash . Collect those leftover soap pieces and store them in a clean, dry container.

1. When you have enough soap slivers, grate them finely using a cheese grater.

2. Take a sauce pan or a pot and boil 6 to 7 cups of water. Now when the water is hot enough add the grated soap to it and stir continuously till the soap is completely combined. Allow this mixture to cool for at least 20 minutes. Now stir it again continuously .The liquid will turn a little thick. 

Now allow the mixture to cool for 8 to 9 hours. Stir it to check the consistency. If its too runny reheat and do the above process again. 

Once you achieve the perfect consistency add an essential oil of your choice. Essential oil should be 1% of the recipe. You can even add glycerin for moisturizing effect . Now transfer it to a soap dispensing bottle. Your liquid hand wash is ready to use.

This is my first DIY in pretty dwelling blog. Hope you loved it folks. Try it out and save those 200 to 300 rupees or may be more on your liquid hand wash.
