Around the House:

  • Microwave oven

1. Cut clear glycerin soap into cubes, and place it into a microwave-safe measuring cup. Heat for 40 seconds, then in 10-second intervals until soap is completely melted. Stir in between melting intervals.

2. Add fragrance to melted soap until the desired effect has been achieved (optional).

3. Place a few very small drops of the liquid colorant into various areas directly into the mold cavity. Use different colors for a marbled effect.

4. Slowly pour melted soap over the colorant, filling approximately 1/3 of the mold cavity. Spray with rubbing alcohol to remove air bubbles.

5. Let the poured soap set for approximately 3-5 minutes to allow a thin skin to form.

6. Spray the poured soap in the mold cavity with rubbing alcohol. (This allows the layers to adhere to one another.)

7. Repeat steps 3 through 6, until the entire mold cavity is filled.

8. Allow soap to set for approximately 20-40 minutes. Once bars have completely set, release them from the mold by applying constant, even pressure with thumbs to the backside of the mold.

9. Wrap soap bars in plastic wrap, pull the wrap tight and snug, bunching it in the back of the soap bar. Use scissors to remove excess plastic wrap.
