So, since I closed my shop, I've been focusing more on being active and have spent a lot more time in the kitchen, cooking healthy meals to replace the fast & convenient foods wed turned to in our busy times(almost always). Well, last week I tried yet another housewife-y thing: I made my own liquid soap. I followed these directions and have finally run out of what was in my dispenser, so I replaced it last night. Um, first of all, it semi-solidified over the last few days inside of the milk jug, so pouring it out was NOT easy. Second, it does have an interesting texture. It does look a little snotty. Third, my hands actually felt better after using the home-made soap & I think that's due to the amount of glycerin I used.
So, those are my thoughts. Sure, it has the potential of costing much less than buying liquid soap at the supermarket, but I don't feel, for me, anyway, that it's something I'll continue to do every time I am out of soap.
