I love this soap! We recently had a toddler that got Desitin cream in her hair, on her skin, and nearly everything else in sight. We tried all sorts of soaps to get it out and nothing would touch it. I brought out some Biodiesel glycerin soap and immediately was able to get the Desitin rinsed out of her hair, off her hands and face, and even used it to pull the cream out of her clothes & bedding. It took it all out! My wife also recently spilled red juice all over the inside of our minivan on the light tan carpet. She used a carpet cleaner for a while on it to no avail so I tried some liquid Biodiesel glycerin soap and scrubbed it into the stain. Magically, the soap removed the stain! It's just amazing how well this works! I also shower daily with some of the bar variety of the Biodiesel glycerin soap and love how well it cleans and feels! We continue to find new uses for it all the time and love the great results!

Chuck's Liquid Soap

I have been making biodiesel for a couple of years now and as expected, the accumulation of the leftover glycerin has been a concern. I have always used the raw glycerin, demethed of course, as a crude soap. It works great to clean my glassware, floors, or anywhere I spill my oil.

I knew it was possible to make a better soap with my glycerin, one that people could use, so I set out to find out how. After a lot of experimentation, and correspondence with Rick Knicely, I think I’ve got it! I’ve been making a very nice liquid soap for the past six months. It looks like thick maple syrup, dark but transparent. It lathers really well and or course the high glycerin percentage makes your hands feel great. I have a group of nurses that are my best customers. They have to wash their hands so often it just dries them out. They like my soap because it doesn’t dry or crack their hands. The brown color hasn’t been an issue, in fact I advertize it. People like the fact that it’s a “green” product, it’s local, and it works.

I have sold it at craft shows and farmer’s markets and have done pretty well with it. I’m not ready to quit the day job yet but I do think I could probably sell all of this stuff that I would care to make. It’s October and I’m already getting Christmas orders. I also have a couple of local tourist shops that want to sell it.

For me personally, it’s the only soap that I will use. I take a bottle of it with me when I travel. The commercial stuff just doesn’t cut it once you’ve gotten used to glycerin soap.
