What is in your liquid hand soap, do you know? There are 15 ingredients in the average store bought hand soap, many containing delightful ingredients such as sodium Laureth Sulphate and Cocamidopropyl Betaine. As my son’s kinder’s “purchasing officer” I was recently asked to find liquid hand soap dispensers as well as a liquid hand soap to replace the old fashioned soap bar. Upon further investigation I was horrified at not only the price of liquid hand soap but the actual ingredients. Surely I could find a simple recipe that not only saves the ( self funded ) kinder some serious coin but could also double as a in house project that the kids could happily participate in. So off I set to google suitable recipes looking at quite a few I found one that was
B – Easy
C – Is free from as many “synthetic nasties” as possible that can cause chemical sensitivities
So here goes
YOU WILL NEED
Cheese grater (from the dollar store)

1 – 8 oz bar of soap ( I used Willows Organic Olive Oil Castile Soap Bar ) which is different from the soap in the picture above.
1 gallon of water
