Melt & Pour Soap Instructions:
Follow the instructions in the kit for exact measurements and weights.
1. Place an appropriate amount of glycerin soap in a microwave safe container.
2. Place in microwave.
3. Microwave on high until melted - 30 second bursts. Depending upon wattage of microwave, the time needed will vary.
4. No stirring is required to melt.
5. Once melted add your colour and fragrance
6. Pour the soap into the moulds and wait for about 40 minutes or until the soap is cold to the touch.
7. Release the soap from the moulds gently. If the soap does not want to come out then wait a little longer.
1. Allow to cool undisturbed for 30 minutes to several hours. The amount of time it takes for your soap to set up will
depend on the size of the mold and you’re pouring temperature.
2. Evaluate hardness before removing by gently pressing your finger to the surface of the molded soap. The soap is ready to remove from the mold when the soap no longer feels warm and there is no depression with moderate finger pressure.
Release from Mold:
1. Apply gentle but constant pressure with your thumbs on the back/sides of the mold until soap releases.
2. Removal may be aided by placing the molds in the freezer for 5 to 8 minutes.
1. Soap can be re-melted. Save your soap scraps in an air tight bag for use at a later time.
2. If soap is too dry due to prolonged storage or reheating, a small amount of water (2 to 3%) may be added as it is melted.
This will make the soap easier to melt and to pour (we mention this with reservation, since this diminishes the integrity
and moisturizing properties of the soap).
3. A white foam or small bubbles may appear on the back of the soap after pouring. It is due to air which is entrapped and then escapes as the soap cools. Lightly spray with rubbing alcohol and the bubbles and foam will disappear.
