How to Make Soap Using Leftover Soap Pieces was something that my husband and I wanted to try. We were constantly tossing out those little soap pieces and soap is expensive. We played around with our soap making skills and finally found this simple way of making soap.
In this tutorial, I’m going to show you how to make bar soap from these little pieces. So start saving all of your leftover soap.
Step 1: Throw all of the soap you have in your blender.
Continue to blend it until your soap is in tiny pieces.
Step 2: Over medium heat add a 1/2 cup of water and dump all of your soap into a medium sauce pan
Step 3: Stir your soap. At this point depending on how much soap you used, you may need to add more water. Continue to add some more water until the soap starts dissolving and becomes a cake like batter.
Step 4: Reduce heat to low and cover. Stir frequently until soap thickens.
Step 5: Using a muffin pan, spray the tin with oil. (Any oil is fine) Then pour the soap batter into the muffin tin.
Step 6: Using a spoon, smooth out the soap batter.
Step 7: Let sit overnight, or place in freezer for a few hours until soap hardens and when done your soap should look like this. Then wrap your soap with plastic wrap and that’s it.
You can decide how big you want your soap by using various containers. We actually preferred our muffin tins because these soap pieces actually fit right into the palm of our hand.
