Hectic On 3 D.I.Y SOAP

During the spread of the coronavirus, everyone is encouraged to make sure we’re constantly washing our hands with soap and water. That’s why on Hectic On 3 we are making a D.I.Y Soap.

But why is soap so important?

Germs stick to the oils and grease on our hands. Water alone won’t remove much of the germs on our hands because water and oil don’t like each other, so they don’t mix.

Soap, however, likes both water and oil. When you wash your hands with soap, the soap molecules attach to both. And then when you rinse everything off, the soap carries away the germs with the water. Today, to celebrate how wonderful soap is, we’re going to make our very own soap.

Let’s get creating!
