Okay... I've heard time and time again, over the years about the use of Ivory soap in enemas. I'm mostly a plain water type of person, although I have tried Dr. Bonners liquid peppermint castile soap a couple times, and found it a bit harsh, (although it smelled good).
So I'm wanting to finally try the Ivory soap thing. But I've got some questions for anyone know ledgable about this. First, how in the world do you take a solid bar, and turn it into a liquid that will mix with water?
I actually bought a bar, shaved it down with a knife, and tried stirring it around in some hot water, but it didn't melt or liquidize to where I could mix it in with enema water... just too many little pieces that wouldn't dissolve.
And then after I get some suggestions on how to 'melt' that bar, how much of the bar do you use? Say for a 2 quart enema...
I recall the last time in the grocery store looking at soap, I noticed the Ivory bar soap among the others, then also noticed that there was some 'liquid' Ivory soap in a bottle.
Would that be the same stuff? Or would it have other ingredients in it to where I should avoid that?
Having a liquid Ivory soap would solve the problem of trying to dissolve that bar so it will mix with water. But then comes the question of how much of the liquid should be used? (If it should be considered at all).
