Making liquid 'soap' Sign In/Join 
posted
Has anyone ever tried to make 'liquid soap' out of bar soap? We like liquid Irish Spring in the shower but I have two large packages of the soap in bar form. I've made liquid laundry detergent from Fels Naptha and other ingredients but I don't know what I could use to make a liquid soap for the bathroom/shower.
Does anyone have any information I could use?

Thanks, Karen Ga. for the links to 'recipes.' I will try this. I hope it works as well as the liquid detergent recipe I use.

The hard opaque bar soaps have a lot of talc in them (to create the solid bar). Beauty or facial opaque bar soaps have slightly less. Don't know if this would tend to separate in containers.

If you have any hair shampoos that you like the smell of, but no longer use on your hair, (don't we all have some in the cupboard?) they can work very well for liquid body cleansers too.

I don't have any of those! I clean my bath cabinets/shelves at least once a year & give them to DH's niece who has 4 girls. It ALL gets used up! Big Grin Along with any body washes that I didn't like also and old makeup, etc. If nothing else, they have fun with it!
