Melt and Pour Soap Kit Clean and Sanitize

Before you start your project make sure that you are truly prepared. First fill a bullet bottle with rubbing alcohol and place a fine mist sprayer on top. Then, not only should you sanitize your work space, but you should retrieve and clean your equipment. The creation of this kit will require a clean counter space and an available microwave. Also, collecting the equipment needed to complete the project will help the process go smoother. Since everything will be within an arm’s reach, you won’t need to spend time and energy to locate certain tools to finish. Plus, pausing part way through may cause your soap to cool before it is time to pour into the molds. So, preparing ahead of time can save you time and prevent you from messing up your creation.

Melt and Pour Soap Kit Preparing and Melting Your Soap Base

Melt and Pour Soap Kit Preparing and Melting Your Soap BaseFirst, you are going to want to prepare your provided soap base. Since melt and pour soap has already undergone the saponification process, all you’re are going to need to do is melt the soap. Also, our kit contains the Goats Milk Soap Base. However, you can choose the clear soap base if you’d like, the process is going to be the same either way. So, cut your slab of soap in half, which will be about a single pound of soap. Then, cut your soap into smaller chunks to fit the soap into your glass measuring cup. After, you will place your filled measuring cup in the microwave for a minute. If the soap is not entirely melted after a minute, then heat the soap again in 30 second intervals until the soap base is entirely melted. You need to melt in intervals to avoid overheating the soap, as it could potentially boil.

Melt and Pour Soap Kit Scenting Your Melted Soap

While we chose to use the Lavender Fragrance Oil, any of the scents will work perfectly. Now, measure out a single tablespoon of your preferred fragrance and mix it into the melted soap.

Melt and Pour Soap Kit Coloring Your Melted Soap

Melt and Pour Soap Kit Coloring Your Melted SoapAfter you add the fragrance oil, it’s time for color.  You will need your Da Bomb Soap Dyes.  Then, you will want to add some of the liquid soap dye to the scented soap. While you can add either color you’d like, we chose to use two red and two blue to create a light pastel purple shade for our soap.  Add your soap colorant and mix.

Melt and Pour Soap Kit Pouring Your Melted Soap

You should have enough melted to fill all the cavities in both molds. After your soaps set up you can create a second batch of soaps with the other half of your melt and pour soap slab. Additionally, you can spray a paper towel with Pam Cooking Spray then wipe inside each cavity of your mold before pouring your melted soap. This will make removing the hardened soap from the molds easier, but will not harm the soaps. Once you pour the melted soap into the molds spray any air bubbles you see with rubbing alcohol to release them.

Melt and Pour Soap Kit Finishing Your Soaps

Melt and Pour Soap Kit Finishing Your SoapsFinally, you are going to finish your melt and pour soaps. First, you will need to wait a half hour before moving your soap molds. Since the soap will be in a cooling process, moving the soaps could cause them to wrinkle or spill before they set up entirely. After this time passes, you can move the soap molds into the refrigerator for about an hour, or you can wait for them to setup naturally. Either way, allow the mp soap to finish the cooling process before removing your soap from the molds. Next, once the soap is setup, turn your mold upside down on a counter and press on the back of the soap cavity until your soap is released. Repeat the steps above with the remaining soap base. After, your soaps are complete and removed from the molds they are ready for immediate use!

Melt and Pour Soap Kit Other Ideas

If you are looking to kick your handmade soap up a notch, you can always use additives. You have many options when it comes to additives. My favorite is mica which can be dusted on your soap once they setup. This will give the soap a shimmering bling. Also, dried flowers like lavender or calendula can be added to the melted soap. Perhaps you want to add coffee grounds for exfoliation. These are just a few ways to make your soap stand out but the options really are endless. We hope that you enjoy the melt and pour soap kit.
