Let it sit for 10-12 hours. It will begin to set up and become solid. Use a hand mixer and give it a quick mix. If it is too thick, add a little warm water until it is your desired consistency.

Pour into a large gallon container to store. Dispense in a normal hand soap dispensre. It makes nice gifts, smells great, and costs just pennies to make. The gallon+ cost less than $3.00
