I've seen several tutorials on Pinterest for making your own liquid handsoap. It looked easy enough - basically shred a bar soap, melt with water and a little glycerin and you're supposed to get bunches of liquid hand soap.
It did not work.
Although it seemed all was well when I first made it, as it sat over the next few days, it separated itself back out into 2 layers: a watery liquid and a thick, gloppy layer. And it's not very soap-like. It takes tons of it to get any real lather. So, I'm not entirely sure what I did wrong but apparently there's more of an art to soap-making than I realized.
