I am a huge fan of soap bars.
When I was in high school, I was always obsessed with soap bars because they were the perfect way to cleanse after a sweaty day.
I would sit on my couch and use my soap bar to scrub away the sweat from my body while I ate my dinner.
I even made a few bars that were just plain soap.
The one that stuck with me was this soapy bar that I used to make myself and it’s sooooooo easy to make!
It’s so much easier than you think to make your own soap bar.
Here’s how to make one.
If you are a fan of homemade soap bars, then you are going to love this simple recipe.
Just take the ingredients listed in the ingredients section of your grocery store and you are done!
Ingredients: 3 tablespoons soy sauce 1 cup water 1 tablespoon corn starch 1 teaspoon salt 1/4 cup milk (regular or almond) 2 teaspoons vinegar 2 tablespoons cornstarch (or other non-starch) 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 2 tablespoons water Instructions In a large bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, water, corn starch, salt, and vinegar.
Whisk in the milk and vinegar and set aside.
Combine the soy and cornstech ingredients in a bowl.
In a small saucepan, melt the milk.
Add the cornstich and continue to stir until the corn starch dissolves and the liquid is smooth.
Turn the heat to medium-low and simmer for about 2 minutes.
Once the liquid has cooled, add the soy mixture and stir until thoroughly combined.
Add milk and water and whisk until it thickens.
Turn off the heat and allow to cool completely before using.
You can freeze it or store it in an airtight container.
I used this to make this soap bar, which is great for when you don’t have the time to make a full bar, or if you’re not too lazy to make it at home.
It also makes a perfect gift.
Recipe Notes For an even easier bar, try using an instant or frozen bar.
If using frozen bars, be sure to thaw the bar in the refrigerator and then freeze it in a ziplock bag or similar container.
You may want to let it sit for a few hours before serving, or even freeze the bars at room temperature for the ultimate bar. 3.5.3208
