Homemade Glycerin Soaps
Almost as appealing as the beautiful soaps themselves is how easily they can be made.
Glycerin is usually sold in large blocks at crafts stores; to melt it, cut it into small cubes that will fit in a microwavable bowl or measuring cup. You can also make multiple mini soaps by using ice-cube trays as your molds.
- Clear glycerin soap
- Food coloring
- Coffee stirrers
- Clean milk or juice carton
- Petroleum jelly
Heat glycerin in a microwave on high, stirring at 15-second intervals, until it's completely melted.
Mix liquid food coloring into bowl with a coffee stirrer. (Food coloring is very strong, so use it sparingly.)
Coat the inside of the milk carton with petroleum jelly. Pour in melted glycerin. Let cool completely (about 2 hours).
Tear away carton, and, using a bench scraper, slice block into individual bars.
