Many times in the past I've fallen in love with a bar soap and ended up buying several bars of it for use down the road. Like most things in life, my infatuation dwindles and I move on to the next best thing I think will be amazing. The storage area under my sink turns to a bar soap graveyard, but not any more since it can easily be turned into hand soap!

Over at Savvy Housekeeping there's been some ingenious homemaking going on. Although it's great to buy sustainable products to begin with, part of being green is using what you have and making due. his quick tutorial is dead simple and is the perfect way to use up all those stray bars that could be hiding in your bathroom.

The idea is easy: just grate down the bar soap, add a little water and glycerin over heat and bam! Hand soap. The best part? One bar of soap makes 2 liters of hand soap! That's some serious savings and a great project to boot! Details over at Savvy Housekeeping.
