Remarks

Soap quality is very important! The best choice is cold-stirred, granular soaps from reliable manufacturers.

If the liquid soap is used as hand soap, it is recommended to prepare it in a slightly thicker consistency.

If you wish, you can add 3 drops of essential oils*. Lavender, tea tree, eucalyptus or oregano are suitable for this purpose, all of which are antibacterial, antiviral, antibiotic and fungicidal.
