If you prefer body wash to bars of soap….
but like me you're on a bar soap budget, you're in luck today if you have water, a bar of soap,an old bottle, a cheese style grater you don't use anymore (or one from the dollar store), and a pan. I made Irish Spring body wash for husband and it came out great – I can't wait to make him Aveda bodywash for a Christmas gift! Since a bar of soap is only about .70 cents, and a container of body wash is at least $4.00 – I saved a ton of money with just a little bit of elbow grease! As you may know, I'm not the most talented craftster – so this recipe is super easy for the least talented among us
Supplies needed To Make Body Wash:
4 Cups Water
1 Bar of Soap
Some Kind of Body Wash Container ( I used an old olive oil container that I washed like five times)
Grate Bar of Soap
Heat Over Medium Heat, Stirring Constantly
After a few minutes, soap will be melted. Take off heat and allow to cool for several hours.
The mixture will seem really liquidy for a while – but trust me – it will turn very, very gooey later.
