103. It is so easy as to be sinful....
I will look up some soap recipes, but right now bar soap is still so cheap that it may not cost effective. Did not know that about glycerin...and I love glycerine soaps.

But the detergent is an immediate cost saver and you can make it in 30 minutes tops including a trip to the grocery store. I had a large mouthed plastic container on hand to mix the stuff in.

I got a book that just came out Make this, Buy that. It mainly covered cooking but her point was that some things are good to make. They are cheap or vastly improve the quality of your life. Other items are better to buy because they are too labor intensive to make and it is just cheaper to purchase them. It was a very good book and a thoughtful read. It was one of the few book that I bought new when it was first released in a long time. It has good recipes for some staples that are great.
