DIRECTIONS

  • Grate the soap, or chop into tiny pieces using a very sharp knife.
  • Use a double boiler for this soap.
  • (or you can just use a heat-proof glass bowl over a pan of water- that's what I always do).
  • In top of double boiler combine the grated soap, water, dry milk powder.
  • Keep the water in bottom of double boiler simmering (about 2-3 cups of water).
  • Stir the mixture occasionally and allow it to melt down into a smooth consistency.
  • You can even whisk it with a wire whisk to get rid of any lumps.
  • Remove from heat.
  • Add strawberry fragrance oil, vanilla fragrance oil (or extract) and the food coloring if you decide to use it.
  • It will add a nice pinkish color to the soap, making it look the color of strawberries and cream.
  • Spoon the soap out into soap molds and allow to sit for about twenty four hours before unmolding.
  • Then let it sit another couple of hours before using.
  • If you don't have soap molds, try using muffin tins, aluminum tart shells, or any candy molds that you have at home for miniature soaps.
  • Or you can spoon the mixture into a lightly greased loaf pan and then cut into it to make bars of soap.
  • Enjoy this wonderful soap!
