    Does anyone make homemade liquid soap? I have goats milk now from milking the goats and would love to make soap. I think liquid would be easier to start with compared to bar soap.

    I have been searching and can't find 'easy' ones for a beginner!

    If you have easy reciepes of liquid or bar please post [​IMG]


    Thanks!

    Easiest bar soap ever:
    2 cans (3 lb) veggie shortening
    1 can (12 0z) lye
    2 cups water

    Mix lye and water in enamel pan, OUTSIDE, set aside to cool. Melt shortening, set aside to cool. When both are "hot to the touch (on the outside of the pan) pour lye into shortening. Stir until consistency of mashed potatoes. Pour into prepared mold and let set 24 hours, covered. Uncover, poke it and see if it's firm. If it is, turn it out on newspapers and cut it into bars. Put them someplace safe and let cure for 2-3 weeks, minimum. If its not firm, cover and let sit for another 24 hours, then turn out and cut.
