Mike takes vegetable oil from our local fish and chip shop, Devour, and turns it into bio-diesel which runs 3 vehicles. What is left over is raw glycerine. Ever the inventor and not wanting to waste a drop of the earth’s resources, Mike has been experimenting with making liquid soap and now has it to a stable stage, neither too hard nor too runny, in all temperatures.
Bring a jar to the market or to GaSP at 4 Winns Rd., for a free sample as Mike wants your feedback!
