Making your own liquid hand soap??? safety? bacteria?

Making your own liquid hand soap??? safety? bacteria?

OK- I've just googled and also check this journal and the Natural Living journal and didn't see anything. OK- wrong- I did find a couple of recipes to make your own hand soap but.... still don't know if it's safe as far as that bacteria might grow in it? Has anyone here made there own liquid hand soap using leftover soap? I do have several odds and ends of unused soap. It's my understanding that you can shred them and make liquid soap. Has anyone else done this and again- is it safe? You would think that since it's soap that you use to clean your hands that it would be safe but I just don't know. I guess I'll also post this on Natural Living and see if anyone there knows. Thanks!
