Christmas Curl Soap
 

Materials:

  • White Melt & Pour Glycerin Soap
  • Clear Melt & Pour Glycerin Soap
  • Red soap coloring additive
  • Soap fragrance of your choice
  • Loaf mold
  • Measuring cups (microwave safe)
  • Wax paper
  • Tape
  • Wavy soap cutter
  • Stirring spoons
  • Microwave
  • Clear plastic wrap
  • Cutting board and knife
  • Rubbing alcohol in a spritzer bottle
  • Refrigerator (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Cut wax paper to match the length of your loaf mold plus 1 inch. Cut width of freezer paper to twice the width of your loaf mold plus 1 inch.
     
  2. Fold up sides of the freezer paper 1/2 inch on each edge.
     
  3. Cut clear soap into ice cubed sized chunks.
     
  4. Add approximately 5 oz of clear soap into a measuring cup. Microwave 30 seconds and then additional 10 second increments until all soap is melted. Stir with spoon.
     
  5. Add red color additive and stir.
     
  6. Pour red soap into the freezer paper like a soap mold. Spritz with rubbing alcohol to remove air bubbles.
     
  7. Allow to dry until still solid and flexible. About 30 minutes.
     
  8. Bend red soap on freezer paper into a candy cane or curl shape with out cracking the red soap.
     
  9. Add approximately 12 oz of white soap into a measuring cup.
     
  10. Microwave 60 seconds and then additional 30 second increments until all white soap is melted. Stir with spoon.
     
  11. Add soap fragrance and stir.
     
  12. Wait until the melted white soap is cool enough to dip your finger into the soap before pouring a 1/2 inch depth into the loaf pan.
     
  13. Optional: If using a metal loaf pan, it will be easier to remove the finished product from the metal loaf pan if you line the pan with plastic wrap at this stage.
     
  14. Pour 1/2 inch layer of white soap into the loaf pan. Spritz with rubbing alcohol.
     
  15. Gently place red soap curl onto the white soap in the loaf pan. Spritz with rubbing alcohol.
     
  16. Slowly pour white soap into the loaf pan until the red soap curl is half submerged. Spritz with rubbing alcohol.
     
  17. Slowly pour remaining white soap into the loaf pan until the red soap curl is completely submerged. Spritz with rubbing alcohol.
     
  18. Allow soap to solidify 1 to 8 hours. Putting the loaf pan in the refrigerator will speed up this process.
     
  19. When soap is completely solidified, remove from the mold.
     
  20. Cut 1 inch thickness soap bars using the wavy soap cutter.
