Easy to Make Liquid Hand Soap

Print Friendly


This easy to make liquid hand soap takes under 10 minutes to make and is a great way of using up those scraps of soap you don’t want to throw away but they are just too little to use.

Choose your scraps wisely though – a little bit of colour combination is required – otherwise you will just have a bottle of grey, unappealing, sludge to wash your grubby hands with.


Select your scraps carefully to avoid grey sludge in a bottle


40g soap scraps
*500 ml boiled water
2 tsp Glycerine and Rosewater


*I used 500 ml but if you want a thicker wash then use less water.

Put your water into a pan over a gentle heat. Grate the soap scraps into it. When the soap has melted add the Glycerine and Rosewater then pour into your cleaned-out handwash dispenser.


Shake well before use as the contents may settle.
