Keeping It Simple Keeps It Clean ~ Blogger Spotlight


(Photo Source Keeping It Simple)

The other day Jamie @ Homeschooling Baptist Brood asked if I had a recipe for homemade bar soap. While I have to admit the idea of making this has intrigued me, I never ventured into the process. Well, as it would happen Sandra @ Keeping It Simple, one of my favorite blogs to peruse, shared a great photo tutorial on this very topic. I knew as soon as I saw it I had to spread the news. So this one is especially for you Jamie!

To learn how to make your own bar soap, check it out here!

Thank You so very much!!! I am so excited to try this. I have been trying some of the household cleaners, not only am I enjoying it but I am enjoying showing my girls ( mainly Chloe ) how to do these.

Also I wanted to make mention about the annoying fruit flies. I did the whole fruit in a baggy, and amazingly enough IT WORKED!! I have been fruit fly free for a few days now!!
Thank You so very much!

I am so glad that the fruit fly tip worked for you. That is wonderful!

I think I might try my hand at the bar soap as well. It sounds fairly easy enough...although, I will admit I'm a little cautious about the use of lye. I guess I just recall the stories my Grandmother would tell of the olden days when they used lye for everything. But heck I'm game for trying it out.

I am so excited, it is unfortunate that my little ones will not be able to participate, I guess this will be a " mommy experience ". I think that Sandra over at keeping it simple, her soap is just beautiful. I know that she made mention that she has never priced all of it, that she just does it for fun and enjoyment, this is what I am leaning more towards...
