Note: If it's too thick, add a little more water. Different factors can affect the thickness of the soap - the water you use (is it filtered or tap), the brand of soap flakes or grated soap, etc. If you want a thicker soap, pour the soap back into the pan and warm it back up. Add a little more washing soda.
