Homemade body wash using a bar of soap

If you are someone who is bored of the same old soap, and tired of using the bar, this interesting alternative is for you. You can melt your soap bar to make a body wash. Just take six to seven cups of distilled water, along with two bars of soap. First boil the water, and simultaneously microwave the bars of soap for about 30 seconds, until they melt. Take it out and then slowly add it to the boiling water, while stirring continuously. Make sure the liquid soap and water have mixed thoroughly. Now transfer the mixture to a glass bottle and make sure it cools down. It will then start to naturally thicken as that happens. Let it stay for about 24 hours, before you take a look. Before you start using it, make sure the consistency is not too thick. If it is, you can add some more water.
