Homemade Liquid Hand Soap

In my effort to be more natural and put less chemicals on my skin I found many liquid hand soap recipes.    We get through a lot of hand soap as we have 3 bathrooms and a kitchen to wash our hands in.   Having cats makes me wash my hands even more as I will wash my hands after fussing them.   As they are the most pampered, loved cats in this world that is a lot of hand washing…    This is so easy to do and makes a huge volume of liquid hand soap.   All for the cost of a bar of soap!   The glycerin is available in chemists.  You could add a few natural oils too but that is entirely up to you.   Just make sure that they are skin friendly.


1 bar soap (as natural as possible)

1 tbspn honey

1 tspn glycerin



  1. Grate the soap into flakes and put into a bowl.
  2. Add 1 cup boiling water and whisk.
  3. Add 1/2 cup room temperature water and stir in.
  4. Add honey and glycerin and stir.  Cool for 15 minutes.
  5. Top with 5 – 6 cups of cool water.   Whisk.
  6. Pour into container and allow to cool with the lid off.
  7. After an hour put the lid on.  The mixture should have thickened by now.
  8. Shake before use.
