Bliss answered it for me. I get mine at CVS in the cosmetic section.
it's not an item they place at eye level - my store places it at the
floor! but it's cheap, like 1.50 or so. the first time I read about
adding it I was really skeptical because the homemade detergent
separates and gels so much. I add the glycerin with a large wire
whisk after the finished detergent has cooled and then I slap a lid
on it and let it sit for 24 hours or so before I use it. it really works
well. when I first started making my own I would get irritated by
those little lumps that would gel up because they tend to not
always dissolve completely in this ancient washer here.
the glycerin made all the difference. and I'm not entirely sure
but I think that stirring in the soda/borax mixture AFTER boiling
down and cooling the soap makes some difference, too.
