How to make your own bath soap from scratch
Posted October 24, 2018 11:12:50 It’s the best of both worlds when you’re making your own soap.
You can pick from a wide range of ingredients including soap from the likes of soap bars, soap cream, natural soap, and even your own hair shampoo.
But what if you can’t get a bar of soap?
You’ll be amazed at the results of your own homemade soap.
You’ll need: • 1 gallon of water (or 2 liters if you’re not using a standard shower) • a small amount of lye (about a tablespoon) In the sink.
Mix together the water and lye with a whisk.
Add the soap ingredients, whisk to combine, and then add the lye.
This is the key to making your soap, says Roshan Shah, who has been making soap since his teens.
“You need to get it out of the sink into the sink, and not in the dishwasher,” he says.
“The lye is a very strong solvent that will dissolve the soap and leave behind the lard.”
It’s easy to make, too.
Mix the soap in the water, add the soap soap cream to the mixture and then blend.
After a few minutes you’ll have a thick, thick, silky soap that can be applied to clothes.
Step by step: If you’re going to make soap, it’s worth taking a look at the instructions first.
If it doesn’t have a recipe, check the bar of the brand you’re looking to buy.
It may have instructions for making soap using different ingredients.
For example, some brands of soap use almond oil instead of coconut oil for the lanolin and palm oil.
If you do want to make a DIY soap, Shah suggests using a bar with the brand’s brand name.
The ingredients are:Water: 1/4 cup lye2 parts almond oil1 part palm oil1 teaspoon lanoline (olive oil, from olive oil is a natural lanolins substitute for palm oil)2 teaspoons coconut oil3-5 drops lemon juice1-2 teaspoons sodium hydroxide (commonly used in perfumes and skin care products)In the soap-making pot, mix all ingredients together.
Add the water.
Put the lid on and let it sit for at least a couple of hours to allow the lignin and the soap to harden.
You may have to scrape the soap off your hands to get rid of any excess lye and lard.
It should smell good, and it should be a smooth, lactic soap.
