How to make homemade bars of soap
How to do it
You will need 50 g soap base per finished square of soap in the mould. Weigh 150 g soap base and cut into chunks. We recommend you use gloves when melting the soap base.
Wash the mould and spray it with rubbing alcohol. Wipe it well to make sure it's completely dry prior to use.
You can melt the soap base either in a water bath or in a microwave. Melt in the microwave with 30 second intervals at 80% power and stir between each interval to prevent heat damage.
Pour the molten soap into the mould. Remove any air bubbles from the surface by spraying with rubbing alcohol.
When dyeing white soap base: Melt 150 g soap base as described in step 3. Colour the molten soap by adding 2 cm soap dye paste and stir well.
Pour the molten soap into the remaining compartments in the mould.
Remove any air bubbles from the surface as explained in step 4.
Follow the same procedure when using clear soap base. Repeat steps 1-4.
Use a smaller amount of soap dye paste when dyeing clear soap. Melt 150 g clear soap base to make three bars of soap and add 1 cm soap dye paste.
Pour the coloured molten soap into the remaining compartments in the mould. Remove any air bubbles from the surface as described in step 4.
