Compose Soft Soap
by Liz S
What you'll need is this: Glycerin soap, clear or white (This only works with glycerin soap -transparent Neutrogena bars will work fine.) Soap dye in colors or your choice. Soap or candy molds. Microwave safe liquid measuring cup. A thea spoon. Popsicle stick or coffee stirrer. A safety knife (adults only)
Fix it: If using bars of soap, cut into three pieces. If using purchased glycerin blocks, cut off 2-3 pre-measured chunks. Put glycerin soap into a measuring cup, microwave according to package directions (or 20 seconds), then in 10-second intervals until melted. If you want colors, this is the time to add the dye. Add a few drops and stir with a spoon. If you want the color darker, simply add more dye. Slowly pour the liquid soap into the mold. Set aside to harden for 45 minutes to an hour. Some soaps may harden sooner than others. Rinse out measuring cup and repeat process for other colors. After soap has cooled completely, pop them out of the molds. If you find this difficult, you can place the soap into the freezer for ten minutes and try again.
