Snowflake Soap Ingredients:
Snowflake Soap Mise en Place:
Snowflake Soap Directions:
• Cut off two (2) ice cube sized pieces from your soap block and place into your glass measuring cup.
• Add 3-4 drops of blue soap colorant, and microwave for 30 seconds; stir.
• Pour your melted blue soap into just the snowflake part of your mold. Tip: it helps if you pour from the middle and let the soap run into the outer edges of the mold on its own.
• Place your mold into the freezer for about 5 minutes.
• Clean your measuring cup (or use a second, clean measuring cup).
• Add five (5) ice cubes sized pieces of soap and place into your glass measuring cup.
• Microwave for 30-45 seconds; stir. (If you need more microwave time to melt, do 15 second increments and stir in between each microwaving.)
• Mix in a 1 teaspoon of your favorite soap scent.
• Pour your white soap over your solid blue snowflakes, filling to the top of the mold.
• Lightly spray the soap with rubbing alcohol to prevent bubbling.
• Place your mold back in the freezer for about 30 minutes or until soap is hardened.
• Carefully press up on the bottom of your mold to remove your soaps.
• If presenting as gifts, you can tie with a ribbon, wrap with cellophane and a ribbon, etc.
• These are perfect for display, gift giving, or to set in a linen closet. Since they are snowflakes, they are great “fancy soap decor” well into March.
