How To Make Liquid Soap

Today we will tell you how to make homemade liquid soap. Homemade liquid soap is perfect not only for washing hands, but also as a shower gel. Here is the recipe of liquid soap:

Liquid Soap Recipe

  • 1 cup of soap flakes;
  • 10 cups of water;
  • 1 tablespoon of glycerine.


  • a grater;
  • a large saucepot;
  • a measuring cup;
  • a spoon for stirring.

Let’s start making our homemade liquid soap.

Grate one piece of soap on a large grater. We've got 1.5 cups of soap flakes. As according the recipe we need only one cup of soap flakes, put the remaining flakes in a jar for further use.

Mix one cup of soap flakes with ten cups of water in a big saucepan. Put the pan on medium heat and stir the mixture. The soap should melt. The process takes 1-2 minutes.

Leave the soap mixture to cool down completely. Add one tablespoon of glycerine to the cold mixture. Glycerine will make soap more moisturising.

Now pour the finished homemade liquid soap in a container. We’ve got quite a lot of liquid soap, so pour the remaining soap into sealed containers.

Homemade liquid soap can be used as a shower gel. You can add  a few drops of essential oil, liquid dyers or replace some of the water or the water with herbal infusion to scent your soap and make it more aesthetic.  I hope you enjoyed our homemade liquid soap tutorial!
