Homemade hand soap - costs just pennies to make!

Big news: I may have discovered one of the cheapest homemade gifts ever. What is it? Homemade hand soap, made out of a bar of soap and water. One bar of soap yields enough hand soap to last for months.

For some reason, I have an overwhelming abundance of individual-sized bar soaps at home, just waiting to be used. Some are from hotel rooms and some I have received as gifts throughout the years. When I saw the idea for making homemade hand soap in Richard Blais’ cookbook, Try This At Home, Recipes From My Head To Your Plate, I had finally found a practical use for all that bar soap.

So here’s what you do: Make a batch of this homemade hand soap and put it in individual dispensers to give as gifts this holiday season. Once you discover how easy it is – and how much money you can save – you may never go back to store-bought hand soap again. This simple recipe could save you hundreds of dollars over time. I hope you enjoy!
