## Step 2: Weigh / Pesar

First, we must weigh the amount of soap we will use. In our case we want to fill a 400 ml dispenser. so we will need approximately 120 grams. of soap. (around 300 gr. of bar soap is needed for each quart of liquid soap).

Then weigh the vessel in wich you will introduce the water later. We zero out our balance (tare button).
We need a quantity of water equivalent to four times the weight of bar soap used.
In our case 120 gr. of soap X 4 = 480gr. of water =  two glasses of water

Primero debemos pesar la cantidad de jabón que vamos a utilizar. En nuestro caso queremos rellenar un dispensador de 400 ml. por lo que necesitaremos aproximadamente unos 120 gr. de jabón. (se calculan unos 300 gr. de jabón en pastilla por cada litro de jabón liquido que queremos obtener).

A continuación pesaremos el vaso en el que posteriormente introduciremos el agua. Ponemos a cero nuestra balanza (botón de tara).
Necesitamos una cantidad de agua equivalente a cuatro veces el peso del jabón en pastilla utilizado.
En nuestro caso 120 gr. de jabón X 4 = 480gr. de agua = dos vasos de agua

<p>One other thing, if, after having done the entire process, you find that the liquid soap is still fairly much a liquid instead of having thickened up, take a small amount, like a cup or so, of the mixture and heat it up and then add 3 Tablespoons of kosher salt to the heated liquid. Stir until the salt dissolves and then add the mixture back in to the soap base you've created. That should help thicken it up nicely so it's not like water any longer.</p><p>Good luck!!!!</p>
<p>What about the gasses that go out from the boiling liquid?</p><p>Is it safe?</p><p>thr soap contains alot of chemicals.</p><p>Is it danger to breath those vapors?</p>
<p>If you do it the way I have learned and have done myself, you heat the water to boiling first. Turn off the heat and then introduce the grated soap into hot water. If you do it the other way around, you have a great chance of the mixture boiling over and making a terrible mess!</p><p>If you're afraid of vapors, you can always purchase masks in the drugstore area of your grocery store, or go to a pharmacy. They can help you there. Or you can even get them at the hardware store. There are a number of different types available to the public.</p>
<p>i have hard tap water.</p><p>Is it matter?(calcium/magnisium mineral etc.)</p><p>Should i use soft water?</p>
<p>You actually should always use distilled water so you don't introduce any more chemicals into the soap than are already there.</p>
You can buy 800mL liquid hand soap from samsclub.com. They are 2 for \$5.75 with free overnight shipping. I just bought 2 to use in my wall mount dispenser. I use them in my shop......really nice. New dispenser costs about \$12.00 + free s/h.
<p>That is extremely expensive soap, considering you can make your own with Ivory soap, which is really one of the best to use because of the purity, and you can get an entire gallon for around \$1.50. Of course, if you want to add a scent to it or essential oils like lemongrass or tea tree oil for their antibacterial properties, it will raise it a few pennies, but not by much. :) I just wanted to point out how inexpensive it can be to make your own, and actually how much better it is for your skin.</p>
<p>Iike this but is there any way i can turn liquid soap to a bar?</p><p>when i tried i left it out side to freeze in cold water but only the water around it frozen soild</p>
Do remember today most soaps on the shelf are toxic to humans and can cause cancer plus other illnesses. These big companies do not care about our health...they just want our money. Our government does not even make many products list all toxic chemicals in them. We need to wake up and not be brained washed any more. if we stop buying these products than the companies will offer better choices. <br>One time I did try making a liquid soap but it ended up a slimy mess. I now only make bar soaps.
I just made some liquid soap using the scraps from our Irish Spring soap. It is awesome and so easy to do. I even washed the dinner dishes with what was leftover in the pot. I would suggest trying to keep the same type of soap scraps so you dont get a strange smell oor some kind of weird chemical reaction.
Sorry to say but I use to work in a grocery and Irish Springs was one of the first things I became very ill from. I broke two ribs twice form coughing due to ordors from soaps. Be very careful to the toxic products you use. Becuase now my system has broken down to more chemicals I have to make my own soap which has no smell but is healthier. I also now sell them and give for gifts to help others stay healthy. My kids keep requestiing for me to make more. Remember A Healthy Home Will Have No Smell.
I recently made my own cold process soap and made liquid soap from the crumbly bits. Works very nicely! Thanks!
Me ha gustado mucho ver que has hecho el instructable en dos idiomas, yo tambi&eacute;n lo suelo hacer. &iexcl;Enhorabuena! ;)
Estoy completemente de acuerdo!! Ser&iacute;a muy bien si m&aacute;s personas escribieran en dos (o a&uacute;n m&aacute;s) idiomas. Felicidades!!
Cool idea. Plus I like to see that so many French speakers are reading about how to use soap.
You don't have to weigh the pot: The weight-system is based on water: 1L=1kg (@ 4 degree Celsius, but doesnt count as the change is minimal)
Thanks for the directions! I've always wondered how to do this.
Thank you Sir!
Bonjour,<br>Je crois que tu a &eacute;crit ton instructables dans la mauvaise langue?<br>Agr&eacute;able, non? Hehe :)
Je pensait aussi que les Instructables devaient &ecirc;tre r&eacute;dig&eacute;s en anglais, mais non, il n'ya pas de limite de langue ( https://www.instructables.com/answers/Always-in-Enlish/ ). En espagnol en il y en a beaucoup. Malheureusement, j'ai vu peu en fran&ccedil;ais. L'orthographe fran&ccedil;aise est peut &ecirc;tre trop difficile (je vous prie d'excuser mes fautes).<br><br>
J'&eacute;tait certain que sa devais &egrave;tre en anglais! Merci pour le lien ;)<br>Ne vous excus&eacute; surtout pas pour vos fautes, je paris que j'en fait plus que vous! Lol ;)
I used to wonder why so many people say french people are so bad-mannered. Now, I know why.<br><br>Deber&iacute;as preguntarte porqu&eacute; desde Corneille (Le Cid) a Carmen (Bizet) , Francia ha recurrido a temas espa&ntilde;oles para inspirarse.
Nice instructible, some advice for other people. I tried this with glycerin soap and when I let it cool it set back into a solid. Use non-glycering soap for this to work.
Nice ible. Photo's are great and allow someone to follow it without needing a translator. I bet if you translate this over to english you might get featured. Either way good job!
