First thing this morning I popped a loaf of bread into the bread maker then set about making a good supply of soap. I've been a little slack when it comes to making our soap, but needing to tighten the purse strings a little, it is time to get back into it. I make a very basic olive oil soap, no fragrance added from a tried and true recipe. This batch yields 20 good size bars and with my ingredient cost at $14.25, that's around $0.71 a bar. I think that's a pretty good saving.
