DIY liquid Castile soap!

Posted on July 16, 2014 at 8:20 PM

Do you love Castile soap, but not the price tag? Me too! A 32 oz bottle of dr. Bronners organic can cost $17! We go throughout a lot of Castile soap in my house. I use it for body wash, in my laundry, cleaning products and as shampoo. I have figured out a way to make your own at home and save tons of money!  It's very quick and simple.

Items you will need are

a big sauce pot


cheese grater

spatula for stirring

large bucket to hold the finished product (I use a 2-3 gallon bucket)


1 bar dr bronners Castile soap

1.5 gallons water

Sounds pretty simple already right?

First you need to start the water on the stove. Put all the water in your pot and bring to a boil.  While that is coming to a boil, use your cheese grater to shred the bar of soap.  Put all the soap into the water and melt into the water. IMPORTANT! The soap must completely dissolve into the water!! Do not allow any chunks to stay!  When it is done, allow to cool for a while and then Put into a container for storage.  TaDa! You made liquid soap!!  I kept my old 32 oz bottles and just keep refilling them.

Sometimes when I go to refill my bottles the soap is kinda solid, so I take my hand mixer, add a little hot water and whip it to make it liquid again.  If for some reason the smell isn't strong enough for you, you can put some essential oils in it. :-) I love lavender, tea tree and peppermint together. (It also helps to deflect lice if you have school age kids)

i hope you enjoy making this and saving money :-)

thanks for reading and God bless
