I know I haven't posted anything finished, just haven't felt I had anything worth sharing. But I might have something this time.
Liquid shampoo recipes I'm still not sure of what or how I should be making them. But I did find a basic shampoo bar that I was willing to try. So, without further ado~~ here's what my shampoo bars look like:
Haven't used them yet, but planning on trying them tonight when I take my shower. Sorry it looks so washed out, but the flash on my camera had a bad reaction to the white countertop.
Now onto the shaving part. I remember as a child my father using shaving soap all the time to shave with. But as I was growing up, I personally used canned shaving cream. Now my two youngest children need to shave. My son for his face, and my daughter for her legs and pits. I can buy the cans at the dollar store and by the time I need to use them, my kids have them empty. And I'm not going to ask what they are shaving as long as the animals are left alone. I wanted a cheaper alternative to those cans so I found a recipe and made this:
I do have a question though; when using Bentontite clay (however it's spelled) is there a trick to keep the soap from turning this nasty grey color? The recipe I had recommened either putting it in with the oils as they were melting (which I did) or when mixing the lye/water solution. Is there another way?
