How to make your own soap
It’s the stuff of nightmares for many.
You want to make it yourself but it’s a bit expensive, or it doesn’t work.
You know you can buy a good quality brand name brand but you don’t want to get caught up in the process.
That’s where a new tool from the company MakeItBetter comes in.
Using a machine called a ‘sandwich’ to ‘mix’ the ingredients you need to make a range of products like shampoo and conditioner, you can create your own brand and give it a go.
Making it easier is that you can mix up any type of ingredients you want.
It’s as simple as using a food processor to chop and grind your ingredients.
There’s a whole range of other recipes and recipes for how to make things, such as making a ‘milk soap’ or making ‘liquid soap’ and ‘gel soap’.
The MakeItWell is a tool that will make it easy to make soap, detergent and even other products like shaving cream and hair gel.
“I used to do my laundry in a bin in my garden,” said James, a 22-year-old from Northamptonshire, who also works in digital marketing.
“Now I just put it in the washing machine and it just works.
It has no smell and I can put it all in the same jar.”
It’s also very convenient, because it is just a plastic container.
“James is using the MakeItMore app to create the products he wants.
It allows you to pick from a range, like soap, shampoo and hair conditioner.
He then fills it up with whatever you want and sticks it in a container to make sure it’s ready when you need it.
The software then creates a list of ingredients that you need, like shampoo, conditioner and soap.
You can add any other products you want to the list too.
You don’t need to put the ingredients in a box, or put them in a jar.
It just works.”
There are a number of other features, such a way to see what ingredients are in the product you are making, and how much they cost, and a search feature that can be used to find products that are close to your budget.
MakingItBetter has also launched a number ads for products that will work with the new MakeItMORE app.
James and other MakeItLessons users have also created a YouTube channel to help promote the product and get people talking about it.
“MakeItBetter is really great,” said MadeItLesson creator James.
“The technology is really easy to use and it’s super useful for the everyday person who wants to make something but doesn’t know how to do it.”
Making it more accessible, and with more recipes to try, has been a big part of the appeal for MadeItBetter.
“If I could give you a recipe I can make for any brand or colour you want, then it’d be a really great idea for you,” said MakeItAgain creator James, who is also 22 years old.
“For example, we’ve got a white brandy soap, and it costs £2.95 so we could make a white version of it for you.”
For the new season, James is also working with his friend and fellow MakeIt Lesson user, Alex.
“Alex and I are using MakeItNow,” said Alex.
“He is a young developer and I am just 22.
I think it’s going to be a great way for people to learn.”
It’s not just teenagers making soap and detergent, but for the older generation it’s also a big deal.
“You can make soap or detergent with ingredients you can’t get from the supermarket,” said 18-year old MadeIt Lessons creator James who works in marketing.
“But there are a lot of other things you can make, you just need to know how.”
