Camp soap

By Tracia Williams
Loofa sponge
Block glycerin soap
Glass measuring cup
Plastic wrap
Tall drinking glass
Knife & scissors
Dampen the sponge in water then squeeze out excess. Cutting across the loofa, use
scissors to divide into three pieces. Cut 3 large squares of plastic wrap. Set one
piece of the loofa upright on the center of a piece of plastic wrap, then wrap the
sides of the sponge, leaving the top open. Repeat with remaining pieces. It is
important that the plastic wrap does not have any seams or openings in the bottom area.
Push the wrapped sponge into a tumbler. Use a knife to cut glycerin soap into small pieces
about the size of small ice cubes. Place these pieces inside the measuring cup then
microwave them at 15-second intervals, occasionally stirring the melting soap
pieces with a large craft stick. DO NOT let the soap come to a boil, once the soap
has melted, pour it into the glass over the loofah sponge. Let the soap set in the
tumbler overnight. Or place it in the refrigerator to speed up the process. NEVER
PUT SOAP IN THE FREEZER. When the soap has set, remove the loofa from the
tumbler then remove the clear plastic wrap. Use a knife to cut into slices.

Little Squirt

Dish soap bottle
Scrap plastic
Waterproof markers
Plastic detergent jug (28-ounce size)
Plastic belt
Paper fasteners
Using a marker, design interchangeable heads on the scrap plastic and cut them out with
scissors. Place a face over the bottle’s neck and secure it with the screw-on nozzle.
Decorate the body of the bottle with markers. To make the holster, cut the spout off
the plastic detergent jug. Add stars cut from scrap plastic (secured with paper
fasteners) and thread the plastic belt through the handle. Then fill up Squirt with
clean water. Ready, Aim, Squirt!
