Homemade Hand Soap

Homemade Hand Soap

Course: Soap


  • 2 Bars of Soap
  • 20 cups Water (divided into 2 sets of 10 cups each)


  • Grate both bars of soap with a cheese grater.
  • Bring 10 cups of water to a boil. Reduce to a rolling boil. (I was able to grate the soap while the water was coming to a boil.)
  • Add the grated soap (which resembles shredded cheese) to the boiling. Slowly stir in the soap until it is all dissolved. Remove from heat.
  • Slowly stir in 10 cups of water to the mixture.
  • Let cool. The mixture will thicken while cooling. (Approx. 6-8 hours)
  • Once the mixture has thickened, blend with electric hand mixer till it is smooth.
  • Pour in large jug/container to store.
