I had seen some info online about making liquid soap from bar soap, and since I am uber concerned about all the chemicals in beauty products, and the price of completely authentic natural and actually non-toxins containing products, this seemed like a cool option. (Check out Gill Deacon ) CBC's Marketplace has a show about such things tonight, but since our tv is damaged... And I LOVE Marketplace (I'm such a nerd)
I've become a fan of Honey Pie Hives and Herbals soaps and bar shampoos, so I used my Pumpkin Pie soap for this. I grated a third of it into a small saucepan, then added about 1/4 cup of boiling water.

This morning it was still liquid, so I poured it into pump dispensers and... it has a strange consistency, like how some parts of egg white are a gloopy mass apart from the rest, so too this mix has some gloopy masses. I shook it up, but maybe it's a bit thin? Well, it was a fun experiment that I am not to try again until the summer!
Edited to add: it never went okay, so I used it in the shower so as not to waste the outcome. I have learned to not mess with perfection!
