Oatmeal Soap

I think I am going to try this;

Turn your leftover soap slivers into oatmeal soap! Gather ingredients: 1/2 cup regular oatmeal, 1/2 cup small soap pieces, 1-1/2 tablespoons cooking oil, and 1 tablespoon water. Put the soap slivers into a plastic bag and pound them into small chunks. Put the chunks into a blender, add the oatmeal, and pulse until grainy. Pour into a bowl and add the oil and water. Mix with your hands, removing any remaining bigger chunks of soap. Shape the mixture into a ball and let sit until hard, about 2 hours. Be sure to wash the blender thoroughly to remove the soap residue.

No not yet.
I have so much on my plate at the moment. I haven't even blogged in awhile. Two jobs, a garden growing rampant, a dog sitting gig, oh and I guess housework is in there somewhere.

Little old me...
