Soap making...

 There is something about making something new for the first time that is so exciting to me.  
My friend Christy asked me if I had seen the recipe on how to make liquid hand soap...I hadn't and I was really excited to see it especially since I had just bought a new smell good liquid hand soup and my little mister Julian decided to use the whole thing to 'clean the sink' for me.
Love this little guy, but the whole thing...really?
She sent me the link that day and this past weekend we made our liquid hand soap.
We used this recipe.
I couldn't find a Mrs. Meyers bar of soup so I just picked one that was big and smelled good when I stopped at Sprouts
I used a South of France bar and it worked.  
 We used the food processor to grate the soap.  This is the little trick I learned when making our laundry detergent.  It is way easier and the kiddos love to grate it.
We made it in the late afternoon and in the morning it was thick.  I is use the immersion blender to kind of smooth it out.  
It worked perfectly.  
Now we have plenty of hand soap for only $3.50
