Making Dish Soap from Octagon Bar Soap

Where do I find Octagon soap for "homemade hand dishwashing soap recipe"? Is it in the bath soap section or the laundry soap section at Wal-Mart?

Oddly enough I've found it at our dollar store. Maybe you could call a few stores in your area ahead of time,asking if they carry Octagon bars.I've also purchased it through: I love it for a pre-treating stains for laundry.

I made my mom laugh when I showed her my new "discovery". I found it in my local grocery store, I buy no less than 10 bars at a time (at 79 cents ea.). I grate it into a glass jar then add boiling water. Let cool then shake and pour. Wonder and grease free.

Can Octagon bar soap be made into a liquid dish soap without adding any harsh ingredients? It is great at the kitchen sink and would be even better if I could use it in a pump bottle. It doesn't crack my fingertips like the store-bought liquids do, cleans greasy things, and smells nice, too.

Making Dish Soap from Octagon Bar Soap

I've never made it into a liquid. I usually grate a bar and keep it in a container to sprinkle into the dish pan. (03/12/2008)
