Making your own cleanser at home is simple and cheap. There is nothing more satisfying than taking your own hand-crafted bar of soap into your shower.  Regardless of whether you’re venturing out in the hopes of finding a better alternative to commercial brand soaps or just bored looking for a new creative hobby, making soaps is fun, cheap and easy.

There are so many new ways of making you own soap. This happens to be the easiest and my favorite. In order to show how easy it is, I had my 10-year-old cousin, Angelina Rosario, demonstrate via video. Keeping in theme with the holiday season, we chose cinnamon gingerbread men soaps.

STEPS TO MAKING YOUR VERY OWN SOAP:

Step One: Unwrap your glycerin and cut into the cubes already outlined for you.

Step Five:  After mixing all ingredients together, grab your mold and begin to fill. It’ll take about an hour for you soap to set and harden.
