    i absolutely love the handmade liquid soap tutorial, because our family seems to have an abundance of soap bars from all of the travelling and hotel stays. also, i think i’m the only one who actually ever uses these bars of soap for anything. however, my family uses liquid soap like crazy. I love when everything has a purpose. :)
