Goat Milk Liquid Soap
Is there a way to change a bar soap into liquid soap using goat milk? Many of my friends want the liquid instead of bar.
ANSWER: Hi Nancy. Thank you for contacting us.
Actually, yes, it can be done. You have to grate the bar(s) of soap and then pour boiled, (to sterilize, then cooled slightly), water over the bar and stir to dissolve. I have done this and it takes quite a while and a considerable amount of water. Unfortunately, I can't tell you how much water per 4 ounces of grated soap. You can go from just a thick soap paste, to a really thin, not very soapy concoction a lot faster than you might think. I did a 5 gallon bucket one time, and like to have never got all the soap paste to liquify...it took days! You might be able to melt the soap, like we do for rebatch, and just continue to add water until it is really thin. (Be advised, it will thicken up some when cooled, so you might have to reheat and add more water). I learned to do it at a website for making "cold process liquid soap", so haven't tried that second method I mentioned, but I don't know why it wouldn't work.
If you have other questions or need further assistance please let us know. Thank you for your question and visit to this website. We hope you return, again, soon! Have a nice day!
