I have mixed them with white fingernail polish.. it is alot wasier to see the colors that way & more vibrant than clear polish... cruch it up first  & then pour into the bottle until you get the color you like.... & then shake up really good to mix it... i had a thing of bb's from a bb gun we had... & put a couple of those in the bottle to halp mix it up when we used it each time...

Use this green clean recipe to make your own natural liquid soap. Natural liquid soap is a convenient cleaning choice for a green lifestyle.
You can make your own natural liquid soap easily. You can also customize your liquid soap with herbs and other natural ingredients. Your homemade liquid soap can be used for different green cleaning jobs at home. Natural liquid soap is an important in green cleaning because it replaces harsh detergents.

Slice or grate a four-ounce bar of natural soap. If you are grating the soap, be very careful not to hurt your hands on the grater as it can take a good deal of pressure to grate soap. Heat one gallon of distilled water. One gallon equals 128 ounces or 16 cups. The water does not have to boil; the water should get heated enough to steam. This temperature is sufficient to melt the sliced or grated soap.

When the distilled water is almost boiling, add the grated or sliced soap. Remove the mixture from the heat. The soap will melt on its own at this point. You just need to come back to it in about fifteen minutes to stir it up. Use a hand mixer if you have one handy. Stir until the soap is completely melted and let sit overnight. The next day, check the soap mixture for complete melting and blending. Blend one more time and let set for ten minutes and then blend again. The liquid soap should now be thickened and ready to use.

For personal use, you can customize your liquid soap by making a strong herbal brew such as green tea or peppermint to add to the water base. Green tea is a skin tonic with antioxidants and peppermint offers a lively and revitalizing scent. You can also add a tablespoon of aloe vera gel to the cooled mixture for its skin soothing qualities. Another fine addition would be two teaspoons of honey for its skin nourishing and protecting benefits. Add two teaspoons of coconut oil for a boost to the lather and for its skin conditioning qualities. You can add two teaspoons of any vegetable oil to the mixture for skin softening effects. You can also use natural liquid soap instead of oil in a body scrub recipe.

You can also use your liquid soap in many ways around the house. You could place it in a hand pump dispenser for easy use near the sink. Another idea is to place one or two drops in a spray bottle of warm water and use it as a general cleaning spray. You can clean fine washables in liquid soap because it does not contain harsh detergents. Your liquid soap can be used on any washable surface.

Making your own liquid soap is a less expensive and a convenient alternative to purchasing already prepared liquid soap. You can easily customize your liquid soap with your favorite herbs and other natural skin soothing ingredients. You will be able to use your liquid soap for a variety of both personal and household uses.
