    I wouldn't if I were you, you have no way of knowing how much more oils you need and it can take an extremely long cook to get oils incorporated into it.
    Turn it into a good laundry soap, shred up, add water and a little glycerin, borax or washing soda and cook for a couple of hours, this will get very dirty barn clothes smelling fresh and clean..
