This lady makes and sells soap... However, the unusual thing is, she gets her raw materials for free!

She makes soap from used cooking oil. She gets it free from "ma and pa" restaurants, because they "don't use it to death"...

She sells each bar of soap for prices from $3.75 to $4.75...

Interesting way to do this business!

She's a one-woman business, and can make 244 bars a day. Let's see... That's a minimum of... $915 bucks a day...!

(She might sell them wholesale rather than retail... but even half or a third of that, per day, ain't too shabby! Especially when your main raw ingredient is free!)

Deep fried cleaning: woman makes soap from used cooking oil

Here's another "twist" to this story...

A friend of mine has also been looking at used cooking oil - and I tell you, there's no shortage of it out there, which you can get for free. He even found an industrial source where he could get tons of the stuff (you read that right, literally tons), for free. The reason why is, they have to pay to get rid of it! If you take it from these kind of people, they're as happy as clams, because it actually saves them money...

You can also use it (after processing it) as fuel for diesel engines... Check out these links...





Just one more "angle" on this idea...

Best wishes!
