It’s no secret the slow cooker can be the key to getting a healthy soup or stew dinner on the table, but the popular kitchen appliance can also be enlisted in ways many people don’t realize. There are several food and non-food uses in which the crockpot shines, and we’re highlighting them to ensure you get the most out of your kitchen appliance.
First up is a project you’re not going to want to eat. Rather, you can clean with your end result. Did you know you can make soap in your slow cooker? Now you do. Make your soap by combining water, lye, and oil. You can use any kind of fat source you like, including olive oil, coconut oil, grape seed oil, etc. Your homemade soap can be ready in only about 90 minutes. Just make sure you thoroughly clean your crockpot before you use it again for food.
