Thrifty Thursday - Liquid Hand Soap

I am forever trying to figure out what to do with all of those soap ends -- You know, when the soap gets so small that it just slips out of your hand when you are using it! That is so annoying.

I have thrown out a bunch of them just because I get tired of seeing them hang around my sink or bathtub!

But, yesterday, I remembered reading that they can be used to make liquid hand soap and since we just happened to run out, I thought I would give it a try. Waste not, Want not!

So here's how:
  • Break up the small pieces of soap and shove them into the liquid dispenser
  • Fill it half full with some hot tap water (More or less depending on how much soap you have)
  • Give it a good shake.
It's just that easy.
