In good news before the shower problem Helen, Bill and I had successfully tracked down and purchased the stuff for making bar soap and dishsoap. We made up a batch of the dish soap before the water got shut off. Here is the recipe:
- 1 gallon warm water
- 2 cups shredded bar soap (we used Ivory)
- 2 tbsp liquid glycerin
- 2-5 drops Essential Oil (we used geranium)
- 5 drops Tea Tree Oil (as an antibacterial)
- Large pot (we used the same enameled pot that we use for making the laundry soap)
As you can see by the picture below it makes quite a bit. At first I was concerned as it was not thick but on cooling it does thicken up some.
