Glycerine can be used for a great many of things, here are five great things to do with Glycerin.
Make Bar Soap
Many people make soap using glycerine you can make many different kinds of soaps with glycerine and different essential oils. Once you do it once and get the hang of it is quite easy. These make really impressive yet really inexpensive gifts. See the supporting links for a recipe for soap making.
Make Liquid Hand Soap
To make a quick and inexpensive liquid soap save up your slivers of bath soap then when you have accumulated about 1/4 of a regular sized bar place 1 cup of water and the soap in a sauce pan and simmer while stirring until the soap is melted. Then give it a good whisking. Then add 1 cup of cold water and 1/4 teaspoon of glycerine and stir. Allow to cool and then add 1 drop (no more than one) of your favorite essential oil to the mixture. Then pour the mixture in to a liquid soap bottle with a pump.
I have three kids so we go through bubbles fast around here and instead of running to the store to buy more every other day we just keep the containers and blowers and make our own. You must use either Dawn dishwashing detergent or Joy or this will not work very well. I prefer Dawn anyways so that is no problem for me.
5 cups of water
1/2 cup liquid Dawn or Joy
2 tablespoons of glycerin
You will need to hold on to a 41 oz bubble container to make this. So buy that once and then you will never have to buy bubbles again. You could also use an empty milk carton to store the bubbles in and then just pour some as needed in to plastic bowls for the kids (this is what I do anyways). Be sure to really wash out the milk carton well you don't want milky bubbles.
Add the water to the container using a funnel. Then add the glyceri and dish soap. Then gently swirl the mixture to mix. Do not shake the container you don't want to make froth, just gently swirl the container around causing the liquid to gently swirl. Then you are ready to blow bubbles.
Clean Up Sticky Spills In Your Freezer
Have you ever spilled something in your freezer this can be a real problem if you don't have time to pull everything out and thaw out the freezer to give it a good cleaning. Well if you have some glycerin around your house you will not need to do all that. Simply pour a generous amount of glycerine on to a rag and dab at the spill until the sticky spill is all cleaned up.
Glycerine is very effective when it comes to healing wounds. If you have would that is opened and possibly to large to create a scar you can dip gauze in glycerine and place it inside of the would, or over the wound. The wound will help keep the skin around the wound from drying up before it has a chance to heal. If skin is allowed to dry out the wound may not heal properly and scarring will be much worse.
