I’ve been living on my own for years now. My desire for independence introduced me to many household chores I’ve never encountered when I was in the confines of my parents’ house. It was difficult at first especially washing clothes. Good thing there was homemade laundry detergent.
My mother was so thoughtful putting the soap to my luggage. She knows that I have sensitive skin and my hands are easily irritated with detergent soaps. I have seen my mother making homemade soap, perhaps since I was a child. I had no interest with it during those days. But things have changed since the first time I used it. I wanted to try making my own. I started to research about it. I began with the ingredients, then the processes. After which, I read about its advantages as compared to other commercial soaps and how it will look like when the steps are fully completed. I had all these information printed because one of these days, I’ll take off!
