Even More Soap

I was on a roll from yesterday, so I made some more soap. But this time it was liquid soap. I used 1/4 cup grated glycerin soap and 1 1/4 cups water cooked on low until melted to make shower gel or hand soap. Then I took 1/4 cup grated glycerin and 4-5 cups water cooked on low until melted to make liquid hand soap for the foaming pump.

I realized there was a minor glitch with handmade liquid soap. No suds. And if there's no bubbles, we just use MORE. But then I may as well go back to buying soap again. So I came up with a possible solution. A foaming hand soap pump. The soap needs to be very thin, but it comes out sudsy! Yeah!!!

Where can I find one of those pumps??

You can buy the pumps anywhere, even Dollar Tree. The problem is they already have soap in them. I dumped the soap into another container for my experiment and we'll have to use it later. I'll put it in the utility sink!
