What you'll need,
1 4 ounce bar of soap - I went with an unscented homemade bar.
1 3/4 cups Hot boiling water.
1-2 tsp Liquid Glycerin - this is completely optional but it will give your soap a silkier feel. It's kind of an indescribable difference to the soap, but I really love it.
Onto some good DIY!
Start with your bar of soap,
And grate that baby up!
Plunk it into a pot,
Pour the boiling water over top,
Wait 5 minutes or so for the water to start melting the soap.
Mash like crazy with a fork.
Your soap might start lumping together, this is normal.
Now grab your immersion blender, and blend! You can also pour all of this goodness into a blender and blend. Your mixture will froth a bit.
Blend until all the bits are combined. Near the end of blending add in your glycerin.
Let the mixture now sit for awhile then pour into your favorite dispensing container. I used an old plastic soap pump I already had. Depending on the soap you used you might need to dilute the mixture a bit. You also want all the froth to come down, do not fear it will! I find this soap is great for scrubbing dishes under a running tap or scrubbing dishes first then rinsing in your sink. Because this soap doesn't have oodles of chemical degreasers (it does still cut grease very well) it isn't really effective when pumped into a water filled sink of dirty dishes. My process for using this dish soap is: rinse the sink of dishes, let the water drain, scrub my dishes with a pump of soap here and there and rinse off again. A little bit of this soap really does go a long way!
