    Several recipes here say to put your blender blade in a Mason jar. I do not own a blender right now, but does the blade really come off? Are you just removing the blender jar? I did not know blenders could be taken apart like that. Please advise.....Benny

    Benny, The blender blade piece unscrews from the blender jar, the piece with the handle, which is the container that stuff is put into to be blended. These two pieces come apart for easier cleaning so you do not cut your fingers and/or cloth to shreds trying to clean the blades. Also, if you are looking for a blender for making soaps, lotions, etc., try Goodwill or some place like that. One with a glass container is best. If you get one from Goodwill try it right away and take it back if it does not work or does not perform the way you want. Their return policy, at least in my area (Maine), is 7 days with the receipt. Hope this helps.

    No. They're completely different ingredients.

    Thank you for posting this, I assume it's the same thing as "Soap Flakes" which is what Ivory used to make and sell many years ago.I like the homemade MYO Body hair bleach recipe and it uses soap flakes/powdered soap in it.

    Love this site, Budget101 is awesome!

    If you do not have a blender, place pieces in a large Ziploc bag and use a rolling pin to crush gently.

    If you use the vinegar to get rid of the Ivory soap smell, it is a perfect time to clean the microwave. I heat vinegar and water in the microwave before cleaning it and it loosens the food for easy clean up.

    It is 1 cup grated soap, 1/2 cup borax and 1/2 cup washing soda. At least that is the recipe I haved used for years. You can increase according just keep the ratios the same.

    2 cups vinegar and 2 cups water in your microwave for 10 minutes, deodorizes and cleans it. Everything wipes out with little or no effort.
