and continue to stir.

Homemade liquid soap
1. Water (40 litres) This may defer depending on the quantity one desires.
2. Sulphuric Acid 1Kg
3. Sodium Triphosphate 1Kg
4. Nitroso 2kg
5. Salt 1Kg
6. Perfume
7. Colour
8. Gloves and mask for safety

Using water, dilute every ingredient individually in a bucket. Mix 10 litres of water with salt in a
bucket and stir until it dissolves.
Put 2kgs of Nitroso in a bucket, add a reasonable amount of water and stir for about 10 minutes
until it is well mixed. Pour 1kg of sulphonic acid in a bucket, add a relatively small amount of
water and stir vigorously until the black colour turns into a white lather.
To mix the sulphuric acid (the black solution) use protective gear like a mask on your nose (It
has a strong, chocking smell) and gloves on your hands, ensuring it does not come into contact
with your body because it has a burning effect.
Mix sodium triphospate with a small amount of water and stir. Let it settle. To mix all the
ingredients, add nitroso into the salt mixture and stir. This will require some strength since it will
create a thick solution.
Add sulphonic acid mixture into these until they bake into each other. Add the sodium
triphosphate too and stir. After this, add all the remaining water gradually to the mixture and stir
as you add the water. As you do, the solution will get thicker, so stir even more vigorously.
At some point, add colour and stir well to mix. Add all the water now and your soap will be
Let it seat now for about seven hours. Cover your liquid soap while at this. After the seven hours,
check the soap and if it is too thick add more water but don’t exceed five litres.
Lastly, add perfume to the liquid soap and stir well. After, close the bucket so that the perfume
doesn’t evaporate.
Always, don’t leave your soap open.

Safety warning
Ensure the solution does not get into your eyes, or come into contact with any other part of the
body because sulphuric acid has a burning effect. Ensure you wear gloves and a mask.
Also, ensure you mix the solution in a safe space away from children.
