Have you ever noticed how expensive body wash is? Like seriously, expensive. At $4 + per container you could literally spend a fortune to get clean in the shower! Mr. Hunky goes through body wash like crazy. I swear he must pour a whole palm size amount in his hand because he goes through one in about a week and a half. It usually takes me a couple of months to get through it because I only use about a quarter sized amount and I usually put it in my loofah so a little bit goes a long way. Mr. Hunky uses Dial Fresh Spring body wash which retails approximately $4, sometimes a bit cheaper if you can find it on sale, but still, that about $10-$12 a month just on body wash! Ridiculous. I needed to make a change, quickly.
On medium heat, melt the grated soap and stir frequently. Your mixture will look like very soapy water and depending on what soap you use, it may look milky! You are doing it right, don’t worry! If the soap is to thick, add some water until it is a consistency you like!
The next morning your body wash will have the same consistency as Jello. Take your handheld mixer and mix the soap until it is liquid again. Once your soap is ready to go, grab your funnel and stick it into your gallon jug! Slowly pour the soap into the jug until it is full! Cap the jug and you’re done!
