make your own soft soap

The Damsel loves pretty-scented soap. But when it gets down to a sliver, not so much. And, she’s had only limited success with gluing it to the new bar of soap.

Plus, her sprogs don’t know how to use bars of soap. They only know how to use soft soap dispensers, and she feels like it’s her lucky day when they’ll even do that.

So today’s class is on how to make soft soap out of those slivers. It’s not hard! Don’t be scared!

Step One: Save up your soap slivers until you have about a cup’s worth.


Chop ’em up. Some people say you should grate them, but it’s not necessary considering what’s in store.


Sweep it all into your blender, and pour in an equal amount of boiling water. (It can be merely hot, if there’s a chance of your blender breaking. But the hotter the better)


Process until smooth, and let cool. Add additional water if necessary, until it’s the same consistency as that stuff you buy in the store. The Damsel felt a little strange putting nonfood in her blender but hey! It’s soap! Now her blender is very, very clean.

In Dis Dress Warning: Determine the consistency when the glop is COOL or you may end up with rubbery, nondispensible soap glop. Just sayin’.

Pour into soft soap dispensers that you have frugally saved. One cup of soap shavings makes two soap dispenser-fulls.


Grandma didn’t have soft soap dispensers. She would have used this to wash her nice little things. Don’t ask the Damsel to say what the nice little things are. You know what they are.

She’d really hate it if she had to say “bloomers” or “knickers.”
