Other items you will need:
Ziploc Bags (for storage)
Microwave Safe Bowl
103 grams- Arrowroot Powder
24 grams- Vegetable Glycerin
112 grams- Diamond Clear Melt and Pour
13 grams- Doodle Bug Fragrance
3 grams- Optiphen Preservative
25-30 drops- Da Bomb Soap Colorant
Step 1: In a small mixing bowl, weigh out 24 grams of
Vegetable Glycerin and 21 grams
Arrowroot Powder. Mix these two
ingredients with a fork to make a paste.
Step 2: Next, in your microwave safe container, weigh
out and melt 112 grams of Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap Base in the microwave
30 seconds at a time. Stir gently. Keep melting until all
soap is in a liquid state.
Step 3: Once all the soap is melted, place 14 grams
Fractionated Coconut Oil, and
13 grams Doodle Bug
Fragrance Oil. Stir Well. Then,
add your paste mixture to the melted soap mixture and stir thoroughly.
Step 4: Add your
colorant. Through our testing we have
found that in order to have a nice bold color you will need to add 25-30 drops
of Da Bomb soap
colorant. If you are looking for more of
a pastel color, add only 10-15 drops.
Mix well. Finally,
place your thermometer in the mixture and wait for the correct temperature.
Step 5: Weigh out and add your 3 grams Optiphen. Please remember, the preservative optiphen should be added to
your recipe when your mixture is between 110 degrees and 120 degrees
Fahrenheit. Mix well.
Step 6: Weigh out 80 grams
of Arrowroot Powder. Do not add all 80 grams at once, you
want to add some, then work it in using a fork, add some more, etc; until all 80 grams are used.
Step 7: Lay out a piece of wax
paper. Then, weigh out 2 additional
grams of arrowroot powder. This
additional 2 grams will be used to lightly coat your hands while you are
kneading on the wax paper.
Step 8: Using a
spatula, scrap the soap mixture out of the bowl, and onto the wax paper.
Coat your hands with
the arrowroot powder, and carefully start kneading the soap mixture. You will notice that it may still be tacky,
but keep kneading and coating your hands until all additional 2 grams of
arrowroot is used in the soap dough.
Step 9: When you are finished kneading,
roll your dough into a ball form and let set out 20 minutes.
Step 10: The playdough soap is now ready to
use. If you choose, you may store the playdough soap in a Ziploc bag
until you are ready to use.
Note: If you would like, you may use the Fun Soap Colorants
instead of the Da Bomb Colorants. However, if you do use the Fun Soap
Colorants, you must also add 6 grams of distilled water to Step 3. The rest of the recipe stays the same.
