By the time you purchase all the ingredients and find the equipment to make this stuff
It took me awhile to chase down the ingrediants, so true. Luckily I got enough to make lube for years!
The equipment list is simple, a knife, cheese grater, measuring cup, and double boiler which is only one pan inside another. I did not build a lube mould from pvc. Instead I opted to just store my lube in mason jars and nuke it in the microwave to be poured into my luber/sizer.
Making lube is one of those things that sounds involved but is as simple as pie in practice. I'll prolly never buy lube again now.
