bottle of degreaserNow you finally have something useful you can make with all those annoying little soap slivers. You don't have to throw them out anymore, make an all purpose kitchen cleaner! With a few minutes and virtually no cost, you can have a bottle full of de-greaser ready to go. Re-duce, re-use, go green! :)


Total Time: 20 minutes

Yield: 22 ounces

Source: Modified from an idea in a book called Make It


  • 1/4 cup finely chopped soap slivers
  • 1 Tbsp borax
  • 2 3/4 cup water
  • empty spray bottle
  • funnel
Super Duper De-Greaser


  1. As you can see, I opted for intact fingers and chose to chop the soap with a knife. The pieces are just too small. :)

  7. Stir continuously with a fork or whisk over medium/high heat until soap is dissolved. This should take about 5 minutes. Soap soup, smells really clean!

Trying it on my stove top, I had to use 2 applications to clean the spatters of grease off. I hope it works better on the BBQ!
