Glycerin Soap

There are as many variations of soap as the colours of the rainbow:

Recycled items

  • Doily (the ones our mums used in saucers when they served tea and coffee)
  • Molds (I used a muffin pan)

Also needed

  • Glycerin tubes
  • Liquid measuring cup
  • Cotton buds
  •  Sharp Knife
  • Cutting board
  • Nonstick spray
  • Palette knife
  • Disposable cotton rounds
  • Household alcohol
  • 1. Spray the muffin pan with the nonstick spray.
  • 2. Place the pan aside and then chop the glycerin tube into small chunks with a knife. Place it into the measuring cup, and microwave the glycerin chunks on high for about 2 minutes. Make sure that all the pieces have melted.
  • 3.  Remove the melted glycerin from the microwave and pour a little bit of mixture into the muffin pans, just enough to cover the bottom of the pan. Allow to cool for 5 min.
  • 4. Gently place the doily into the pan on top of the first pouring.
  • 5. Pour the rest of the melted glycerin into the pan, use the cotton buds to remove any air bubbles. Allow to cool for 12 hours.
  • 6. Release the soap from the pans using a palette knife.
  • 7. Rub the newly made soap bar on a towel cloth to remove any rough edges.
  • 8. Your soap is ready to be displayed.


Tip: Rub the surface with an alcohol cotton pad, which will eliminate oil bubbles.
