Thanks to Cynthia for this Frugal Baby Tip!

A tip on the soap, someone was having a hard time grating it and mixing it with water. Melt your grated soap in water over a double boiler and add a small amount of (vegetable) glycerin, this will help keep it liquefied.

Don't do large quantities as I understand "natural" soaps have a tendency to go rancid once they have been liquefied
(probably not for several weeks though).

Thanks to Marina for this Frugal Baby Tip!

You can add grapefruit seed extract if you aren't going to be using it in the next 6 months. It acts as a preservative.
